Peden Turns Down Sharmba, Picks Tszyu

By Rick Reeno

The big news going around overseas is that Australia's Robbie Peden turned down Sharmba Mitchell's offer to come to his camp as a sparring partner. Peden is scheduled to face Nate Campbell for the vacant IBF junior lightweight title.

Peden said he rejected the offer to spar with Mitchell due to Mitchell's style. He felt that Mitchell's southpaw style would not be beneficial to him in terms of getting ready for the orthodox style of Nate Campbell.
 
"Sharmba is a southpaw and Campbell is a right hander who comes straight at you. "It would have been good to work with Sharmba, he's a two-time champion, he has a lot of skills, but for the fight I'm getting ready for we thought it's just not suitable. He's the wrong style." Peden said.

Peden is expecting Kostya Tszyu to pull out a spectacular win over Sharmba Mitchell on November 6, 2004.

"I haven't seen him fight in a couple of years, but Kostya puts that consistent pressure on his opponent. What I've heard is Kostya's training camp has been pretty impressive and he's in super form." said Peden

Sharmba has been training with a variety of top fighters like Shane Mosley and Steve Forbes in order to get ready for the big rematch with Tszyu.
