Campbell to sign with Oscar!

By Flattop

Former unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell is close to signing a promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. Campbell spoke exclusively to FightNews regarding this matter:

“It’s absolutely true Flattop. We’re close. VERY close. I have to do what’s best for my family and my legacy. People think I’m mad with Don, but I’m really not. It’s just in my best interests to move on. Nobody wants to work with Don anymore, and he can’t get me the kind of fights I need at this point in my career, and Golden Boy can. It’s that simple. Remember, I was already the #1 mandatory to Diaz when we signed with Don in the first place, so it isn’t like he moved me into that spot or anything. Terry made those moves, not Don. And since the Diaz fight, all Don has brought was the Guzman nightmare and the Funeka fight (both mandatories), who’s names would only be recognized by about 15 people in the US combined. It’s not my fault that nobody wants to work with Don, and I cant fight that battle for him. He’s got to deal with that on his own. I had to move on. And Golden Boy is really the perfect fit for me right now. They have the names I want to fight, like Marquez and Hatton, and they can get the TV dates, plus other promoters will work with them, and they really can get things done. My signing bonus will be more than I made the entire time I was with King, you feel me? Richard and Eric can get me the Marquez fight, meanwhile Don is talking about Devon Alexander, who ain’t never fought nobody. Come on brother. Be serious. It ain’t even a debate anymore. Look, this deal with Golden Boy will put me in the fights that can secure the future for my family, and establish my legacy. And honestly, that’s all I’ve ever wanted from this game. So hopefully Terry and Golden Boy can get this thing wrapped up quick, because I’m dying to get back in the gym.”
