Nate Campbell vs. Khabib Allakhverdiev, 9/25 in Russia

By Alexey Sukachev

Former undisputed lightweight champion Nate Campbell (34-8-1, 25 KOs) will come back to Russia just one more time this fall. On September 25, the 39-year old American veteran takes on up-and-coming Russian charge and former amateur star “King” Khabib Allakhverdiev (14-0, 6 KOs), 28.

The contest is a part of the show, promoted by German Titov and Kirill Pchelnikov at Olimp sport hall in Krasnodar, Russia. In the main event, WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (18-0, 14 KOs) will put his title at risk for the second time against fellow compatriot Gennady Martirosian (22-2, 11 KOs) in what will be the first ever all-Russian championship encounter.

Campbell fought in Moscow just three months ago and easily beat Uzbek opponent Sherzod Nazarov on points in Roy Jones vs Denis Lebedev undercard.

Stick a fork in Campbell...he has been done a LONG time. I can't believe any manager or promoter would put on a fight with him KNOWING he is SHOT.

Nate Campbell is washed up, he's gonna get beat up badly.
