    Default Gabriel Campillo

    The are very few fighters from the Iberian Peninsula that get any recognition on the world stage as a matter of fact only Javier Castillejo and Kiko Martinez spring to mind immediately. I bring up Campillo because this was his road warrior year and I think he deserves some credit for what he has acheived.

    In March he went to Denmark and fought Lolenga Mock a guy who has been
    fighting for minor league titles since 2004 with some success. Campillo stuck to his guns and came out with unanimous decision.

    In June he moved back up to Light Heavy a weight he hadn't fought at since. 2007 he went to Argentina to fight ring rated Hugo Garay in his backyard. By
    the skin of his teeth (more specifically a 10-10 round) he was able to snatch away the title.

    In August just two months later he made his first defense against one the most promising prospects in the Light Heavy division Beibut Shumenov an olympian who had the home field advantage in Khazakstan. Although Shumenov only had 8 pro fights he had fought against a wealth of experience in with the likes of Montell Griffin, Epi Mendoza and Byron Mitchell. Even with the questionable judges scorecards Campillo walked away victorious again with his second MD of 2009.

    A pound for pound fighter? Definately not, but someone who has tested their grit on the road? For sure.

    I give respect for Campillo and hope that he continues to get fights in 2010 with names like Yusaf Mack, Nathan Cleverly and a possible rematch with Karo Murat, there are plenty of international opportunities.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Campillos got heart, I thought he beat Karo Murat.
    He pressed the action more and looked for the fight coming forward.

    He shocked me when he beat Garay I thought Garay would outbox for a clear UD but Campillo again with his will came forward and pressed on.

    He's a fighter who lacks in the skills dept. but more them makes up for it with his heart and determination.

    I almost missed this gem buried amid all the Pacquiao/Mayweather threads.

    Campillo is the kind of guy you can't help but root for. He was unlucky to lose to Murat, but I thought both Garay & Shumenov would beat him, but he's just got a resilience to win or something, because he's got no natural gifts to speak of.

    One of those fighters I'd be tempted to give a wild-card fighter of the year vote to, if only Pacquiao hadn't done so much.

    Thats why I started this thread these working man type fighters never get the credit they deserve. They always get overshadowed by the moneymakers.
