With undefeated welterweight Kevin Bizier (19-0, 13 KOs) in need of an opponent for his headline fight next Friday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, it looks as if the name of former undisputed champion Nate Campbell (36-9-1, 26 KOs) has surfaced to the top of the heap. Veteran Montreal boxing writer Daniel Cloutier first broke the name and Fightnews was able to reach the Florida based boxer for confirmation this morning by text. Earlier this week original opponent John O’Donnell fell through with a reported hand injury leaving Bizier’s GYM promoters scurrying to find a suitable opponent for the ESPN Friday Night Fight headline slot. Forty year-old Campbell had a good 2012 as ‘The Galaxy Warrior’ became a ‘Road Warrior’ notching victories in the Dominican Republic and Poland against hometown fighters Victor Cayo and Kryzsztof Szot. Previous to that Campbell had lost four of five. The fight is scheduled for 12 rounds and will be for Bizier’s NABA welterweight belt.
