Nate Campbell fighting on Khan-Diaz card

Former unified lightweight world champion Nate “The Galaxxy Warrior” Campbell (36-10-1, 26 KO’s) of Jacksonville, Florida will be crossing the Atlantic to take on undefeated Manchester prospect Terry “Turbo” Flannigan (19-0, 5 KO’s) in a 10-round lightweight bout on the undercard of the Amir Khan vs. Julio Diaz bill at Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England on April 27. “It’s a great honor to be fighting in England,” said the 41-year-old Campbell. “I’m in great shape and looking forward to returning to the lightweight division and this fight will serve notice as to how serious I am.”

Flannigan stated “I’m looking forward to showcasing my talents against a former world champion in Nate Campbell. This is the type of fight I have been waiting for and I’m ready to move up to the next level and prove that I belong there. It’s going to be tough, but come the end of the fight, I have no doubt it will be my hand that is raised.”
