MY friend, Olympic champion Luke Campbell, is training for the biggest fight of his life right now as he prepares to face Jorge Linares for the WBA world title next weekend (Saturday September 23), writes Tony Jeffries (whose Box ‘N Life podcast can be found HERE).
The fight is not far from where I live here in LA. Luke was originally training in Florida, but because of the hurricanes over there he dropped me a line on Instagram and said he was coming to LA and wanted to train at my Box ‘N Burn gym.
So, he has been, and I’ve been watching him train – he looks phenomenal! His hand speed, footwork and strength are great. He told me that his whole camp has been amazing and he is more than ready.
