Ryan Garcia recently defeated Luke Campbell but Francis Ngannou seems to enjoy getting punched by the boxer

American boxing star Ryan Garcia put on another great performance as he defeated Luke Campbell to win the WBC interim Lightweight title.

The 22-year-old already has an impressive record of 21 wins and no losses. Garcia has 18 KO wins in that spell but there was a scary moment in this clash.

He was knocked down in the second round but came back strongly to get the win. Garcia celebrated wildly after the decision and it will be interesting to see what is next for him.

Garcia has been called out by former two-division UFC Champion Henry Cejudo, and that could be a great match.

Cejudo retired from MMA after a win over Dominick Cruz but it seems he is more than willing to return to the UFC for the right fight.

Garcia has been training with Francis Ngannou in the past and the UFC Heavyweight shared a hilarious clip of the two.

Laughing off the hits

Getting punched, even while wearing some protective gear, from a boxer is not a fun experience.

Ngannou shared a video from the past and congratulated Garcia on the win. While the UFC Heavyweight claimed that the body shots from Garcia were powerful and he felt it, Ngannou was seen laughing off the punches.

Garcia seemed to be using all his strength and even with Ngannou wearing the protective gear, it didn’t seem to make a difference to the Cameroon-French star.

Ngannou also has to prepare for a huge fight soon. He wants to face Stipe Miocic in a rematch for the UFC Heavyweight title.

Miocic last defeated Daniel Cormier, who retired after the loss. Ngannou had fought Miocic a few years back but was defeated by the current champion.

This could be his chance to win the title for the first time, and his body seems ready to take a few shots from Miocic too.
