Luke Campbell insists he can still prove he is the best lightweight in the world.
The Brit lost to Vasyl Lomachenko last year and faces tough competition from Teofimo Lopez and Devin Haney.
But Campbell believes he can take the first step to proving he belongs at the top by beating Ryan Garica.
“I’m confident because I want to prove that I am the best in the division," he said,
"From what I have seen, he is good. He is fast. He’s got good skills. But I believe in myself. My strategy is to win by any means possible, and I’m going to be the best version of myself.
“Tune in Saturday night. I’ve come to fight. This is going to be a fantastic fight. We are two of the best lightweights in the world, and it will be a fantastic battle.”
Garcia, however, insists his time has come.
“I wanted this fight after Francisco Fonseca. When it was offered to me for the interim title, I thought that my dream was finally coming true," he said.
"I’ve always said he is a good fighter. I never said he wasn’t a good fighter. But I just know that with my skills and my training, I will be victorious.
“My fights haven’t gone long because I don’t let them. If it happens to go that way, then I’m ready for 12 rounds. If he’s tough and he can take a shot, then I’m ready for that.
"They can say all they want about me not being able to go 12 rounds. I’ve trained to go 1000 rounds. I expect this to be a great fight. I expect this to be a great war.”
