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.
this is the only way campbell can make a little money. if they knew there what we know here,then this fight does'nt happen. but i don't blame nate because he can't get paid here.Comment by richardt on 08-20-2011
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.Comment by kfcfloydiots on 08-20-2011
