DKP snags Campbell-Casamayor!

Tuesday, May 27 2008


Don King Promotions won the right to promote a bout between WBO/IBF/WBA lightweight champion Nate Campbell against WBO interim titleholder Joel Casamayor at a purse bid held today at WBO headquarters in San Juan, Puerto Rico. DKP's bid of $1,220,000 outdistanced the $571,000 bid of Golden Boy Promotions. The tentative date is August 27 with proposed sites in Florida, England, or Las Vegas. The purse split will be 50/50. Contracts must be signed no later than June 3. If Campbell doesn't sign, he would be stripped and Casamayor would immediately be stripped. If Casamayor fails to sign, Campbell would be left without commitment to face Casamayor.
