Timothy Bradley-Nate Campbell Decision Overturned
By Rick Reeno
BoxingScene.com was advised that the California State Athletic Commission overturned Nate Campbell's third round technical knockout loss to Timothy Bradley. The result has been changed to a no-contest. The fight, held on August 1 at the Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage, California, was stopped at the end of the third round after Campbell was unable to see due to a serious cut above his left eye.
The cut was caused by a cut but the ref, David Mendoza, failed to rule it as such. After the fight, a replay showed that Campbell's cut was opened up by a clash of heads. Mendoza tried to claim that it was Bradley's punches after the clash of heads that opened up the cut.
The cut was caused by a cut but the ref didn't see it. :lol1: That struck me as funny.Comment by krispy kreme on 08-25-2009
