Nate Campbell And Wilson Alcorro Set To Rumble At The Florida State Fairgrounds Hall
06.07.07 - By Wray Edwards; Photos © Wray Edwards/ESB: Billed as "Friday Night Fireworks" One Punch Productions brings Nate "The Galaxy Warior" Campbell (30-5-1, 24 KO's) From Jacksonville, FL and Wilson Arcorro (35-7-3, 23 KO's) from Monteria, Colombia to Tampa for Lightweight action. Mr. Campbell is blessed with great talent and cursed with inconsistent use of it. On the one hand he has a victory over Kid Diamond (Almazbek Raiymkulov), and on the other he pulled a Mayorga in front of Robbie Peden back in February of '05 which promptly earned him a no-see'um, one punch KO. ESPN's "Friday Night Fights" will carry the event.
ESB asked Nate about the incident and he said "I made a mistake, and it made me a better boxer." IMO he has been much more workmanlike since that go-to-sleep call (we can't call it a wake-up call now, can we?). Rated in the top five by some and the top ten by most, Campbell comes off his March victory over Ricky Quiles with an eye towards fighting often and fighting hard to earn a title shot. The under-card fighters looked ready as they weighed in as follows.:
