Lewkowicz: No Way That Cloud Will Defeat Campillo

By Rick Reeno

Sampson Lewkowicz, adviser to light heavyweight contender Gabriel Campillo, doesn’t see any possible way that his boxer loses to IBF champion Tavoris Cloud on Saturday at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Since 2007, Campillo suffered two controversial decision losses. The first came to Karo Murat in 2007, by way of majority decision, and the split decision loss to Beibut Shumenov in 2010 was one of the worst cases of incompetent judging in the last decade.

“Campillo has trained harder than I’ve seen in his entire career. If he doesn’t win this fight on Saturday, I will be extremely surprised. Campillo is in the best shape of his career. He wants to win this title for the many fans who asked for this fight. Cloud has never fought any opponent like Campillo. I expect a new champion on Saturday night,” Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com.

Additionally, Lewkowicz is planning to have a few notable guests for next Tuesday’s press conference in Santo Domingo, where Sampson Boxing will officially announce the junior welterweight fight between Victor Cayo and Nate Campbell. Former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. is confirmed to take part in the presser. Cayo-Campbell is scheduled for March 24th at Palacio de Los Deportes.

I'm really looking forward to this fight.

Yes Campillo did kick the dog shyt out of shumenov, very horrible decision, and cloud has a very similar style to shumenov - just a more polished style, very aggressive tho, and campilo fires off good counter combinations, not just…

The thing that holds me back from giving Capillo a solid chance in this fight is he was knocked out by a VERY ponderous and mediocre Uzelkov. But Uzelkov did KO Tomas Adamek.......the problem is it was the wrong Adamek.

Damn, I'm glad Sampson came out and said there is no way. No reason to fight then! Tavoris can just hand over his title and call it a day. *note, sarcasm

Sampson's right on the bad decision but Cloud's another matter w/his hi vollume of punches..should be good & differences in styles...
