Jacksonville, FL - The anticipated lightweight matchup between IBF/ WBO / WBA Champion Nate Campbell vs. WBO Interim Champion Joel Casamayor appears to be headed for a purse bid, according to Campbell's co-promoter Terry J. Trekas of One Punch Productions.

"I spoke to Don King about an hour ago, and Don will be requesting that the WBO order this fight to go to purse bid, since the "negotiations" went nowhere,” states Trekas. “Whether or not that results in Joel actually signing the bout agreement, well, we will have to see what happens with that. My guess is he won't, but this is the process we have to go through."

One potential problem appears to already have been resolved. Different sources have indicated that Team Campbell was expecting an 80-20 split in their favor, as the split was when the proposed Diaz-Katsidis matchup went to purse bid. Other sources indicate it would be a 50-50 split.

Regarding the projected split, the very outspoken Campbell said the following:

"You know what? It SHOULD be 80-20 my way. I took Diaz’ place, and he took Katsidis’. I'm the world champ, and a multiple belt holder, and he is the interim champ. It’s the same situation as Diaz-Katsidis.

“But if the WBO doesn't recognize me as a super champion like they did Diaz, then so be it. Even though I should be entitled to an 80-20 split my way, since I have 3 belts on the table and he has none, except of course for the Golden Boy belt.

“I'll tell you this much; for the opportunity to knock his ass into retirement once and for all, I'll take the 50-50 (split). It's actually almost worth the 30% cut for the opportunity to stomp a mudhole in his ass.

“So bring on the purse bid. And let's see if his so-called "promoter" will even show up for the bid, since they don't have a TV date. Rest assured that Don will be at that bid, date or no date, envelope in hand.”

I never bought that bullshitt that Casamayor was scared to fight Campbell. Ha! He already beat him once. Casamayor is a warrior. He'll fight anybody. He just looking to get paid. Nothing wrong with that

If it ever happens, I'd pick Casa, but tahts a tough call

Could you imagine the drama of who would be the #1 guy if Juan beat Casa?

Juan would actualy be the linear champion but he'd have recently lost to Nate. :laugh:

Damn that would be crazy. We'd have 3 different sets of claims to argue. I'd go with Campbell just because.
