    Default What is up with Nate Campbell ?

    He hardly ever bloody fights, couldent make weight in his last fight and always bangs on about wanting the top guys in the 135 or 140 divisons. He seems a blt like America's equivalent of David Haye. Is he signed up for any bouts yet ? Sometimes I wonder if there's any point in him fighting on. Please fight somebody.

    He fighting Timothy Bradley on the 1st of August. He couldn't make lightweight, so he moved up to 140 and is fighting the best guy, bar Pacquiao. His last fight was only in February. He did fight, but was over 135 so the titles didn't count.
    David Haye's last fight was last year. I don't see the problem with Nate.

    In addition, he has had some promotional issues. When Guzman refused to fight him, he did not get paid, which caused him go bankrupt. The bankruptcy judge invalidated his promotion contract with Don King; then Don King sued.

    So he has been legally tied up too

    Well, that was his trainer not him, all Campbell said was, yes it was true, that he'd never fought any African-American fighters, he didn't make out that it made Pac afraid of them or anything, that was just his trainer.

    But he believes his trainer's claim though - when he got interviewed recently by Dennis Guillermo of The Examiner. Pac was never fought any african-american fighter cuz he didn't time for them. He was busy fighting the best. And btw, Pac was already scheduled to fight Diaz before even the Pac-Marquez rematch happened.

    Duh. Obviously Nate is creating a hype. He wants a piece of Pac too.

    Busy fighting the best? Well, at least you got the Diaz fight mentioned. He didn't have time for them?? I don't think Pac has done anything wrong in when he has missed African-American fighters as there were always better money options available, however if you can honestly say that Morales was still a better option after Raheem beat him, & that ODLH was a 'better' fighter than Campbell at that point you're mad. They were undoubtedly better money options, hence why in no way I hold it against him fighting them, however at those moments they were not best. I read the Guillermo article & all Campbell says was that the facts are true that Pac hasn't fought an African-American not that he's afraid of them. He does imply that Pac doesn't want to fight guys like him or Mosley (the latter is probably true) & criticizes the catchweights, but he doesn't say anything to the extent Jackson went.

    Nate Campbell is too busy being a badass to stop and fight sometimes. No really he is keeping fairly busy. He has had some serious setbacks in his career, but it looks like he is ontop of things at the moment.

    I think he is going to beat Bradley up. Mind you this is the second time Bradley is took Edner Cherry moving up in weight last year as one of his title defenses... Is he a little gun shy of the natural LWWs? I'm not going to take anything away from him for fighting Campbell. He is one tough cookie that doesn't like to crumble.

    I really hope Nate can't pull off another upset. He's just too fun to watch.
    "Floyd needs to inject Xylocaine into his balls to gain the courage to fight Pacquiao."

    - and I quote from some random guy on the internet
