Boxing Preview: Gabriel Campillo vs. Beibut Shumenov

By Danny Wilson August 15th, 2009 All Boxing Previews

The WBA light heavyweight strap is at stake tonight at Daulet Sports Complex in Astana, Kazakhstan as heavily-hyped local prospect Beibut Shumenov attempts to unseat newly minted champion Gabriel Campillo.

Spanish southpaw Campillo, 18-2 (6), came into prominence in June by moving up from super middle and toppling WBA titlist Hugo Hernan Garay in his native Argentina.

Campillo had previously held the European Union 168 pound crown after losing a majority decision to Karo Murat for the full European crown a year ago.

Shumenov, 8-0 (6), couldn't ask for a better shot at winning a world title but still, the Las Vegas resident will be taking a step up in competition from what he has faced so far during his less than two year old professional career.

The 25 year old former Kazakh amateur star has seen off name opponents during his last three bouts but former light heavy champ Montell Griffin and ex-super middle champ Byron Mitchell were far and away past their best.

Campillo probably doesn't have enough of a punch to bother his aggressive rival so he will have to outbox the local hero, drawing on his greater experience and southpaw stance to take away the confidence of Shumenov.
