The boxing world is once again divided over what we witnessed tonight. Ryan Garcia stopped Luke Campbell with a vicious shot to the liver after being dropped in the 2nd round of their fight and there are already those out there crying foul. 

Jorge Arce on the other hand is doing the opposite.  Arce has nothing but praise for Garcia.  

“I told you that kid Ryan Garcia, no one is going to hit him and in good time  the newest boxing star has just been crowned,” Tweeted Arce. “WBC Lightweight World Champion. I couldn’t bet on the KO, but I was sure I would win. It was easy money. Now it’s time for all the the lightweights suck as Haney and Linares.”
