According to Terry Trekas of One Punch Productions, co-promoter for WBO/WBA/IBF lightweight champion Nate Campbell, the WBO has given interim-champion Joel Casamayor until April 4 to decide whether or not he will fight Campbell.

Based on Casamayor's recent statements about not being interested in a bout with Campbell, it's unlikely the fight will happen. Juan Diaz, recently signed by Golden Boy Promotions, who also promote Casamayor, is said to be a possible opponent for Casamayor in the near future.

Casamayor holds a 2003 decision win over Campbell and is using that win to justify his decision to seek out another opponent. He wants to face the likes of Manny Pacquiao or Marco Antonio Barrera. The chances of landing either is very slim.

Should Casamayor turn down the chance to fight Campbell, the WBO, according to their guidelines, would strip him of the interim-title and elect Anthony Peterson as the mandatory challenger.

Casmyr knows Cambell is one tough dog and is not nessesarily looking to engage him again in the ring, he feels he deserves the likes of Paquiao.
unfortunately the powers that be don't feel the same way and that's a shame cause it would be an interesting match.

I'd love to see Campbell get a shot here. He's better than he was and Casamayor is worse.

Possibly, but it wouldn't be like the first time. I'd place a decent bet on Campbell.

I think Casamayor would beat Campbell again.
I've got to agree with you there.


Casamayor better take this fight because I don't Pac-Man taking this fight. He'll most likely fight David Diaz or JMM again. Casamayor has a lot to gain here so let's hope he makes the right choice. Either way I don't respect him till he gives Santa Cruz a rematch.

Campbell showed he has skill on the inside but I still question him from the outside. that's where I think Casamayor would beat him.

Tough fight to call... but based on recent performances it looks like Casa's beginning to succumb to pressure. It looks like what's left in the legs may be running out...

Campbell may take a page out of Katsidis' handbook (before he was caught) and put the pressure on... and he's very capable of doing it based on what we saw from Juan Diaz.

So I'd probably lean slightly toward Nate if he comes as prepared and focused as he did with Juan Diaz. Still tough to call though.

I still prefer to call Nate champ moreso than Casa. Nate beat a guy many thought was best in the division while Casa got a gift against Santa Cruz and he still uses his promoters belt to make him significant in the division.

It's a fight that needs to happen to clear up the lineal/alphabet BS.

So who would Peterson be fighting for the title???

Campbell TKO3 over Peterson. He's far too green.

I love the post from Igorotak. I see this fight in the same light. Casamayor looked terrible against Santa Cruz and looked better against Katsidis, but he looks nothing like his former self in my opinion. The C level Katsidis was doing very well in that fight until he got caught. As Merchant would say Katsidis is no Nate Campbell. I like Campbell in this fight by close UD. Campbell sweeps rounds 9-12.

Thanks PrettyBoy.

...but now that I think about it, I'd probably give more legitimacy to the winner of Campbell-Santa Cruz if they were ever to fight...
