**** Guzman! I should have known he'd pussy out. Hopefully Marquez/Casamayor will deliver, because I was really counting on Nate to give me something to cheer about.

Guzman's new physical trainer wanted him to add muscle and implemented more weightlifting. Apparently he's put on too much muscle mass. This was the main fight I wanted to see.

This is a joke. To be stepping up and not making weight is unacceptable. I wonder how Nate feels now.

Nate agreed to let him fight even though he was over. Nate said he'd fight him if he came in 30 lbs over. One of the worst parts was that Guzman didn't even inform Don King and Showtime that he wouldn't fight 'til 7:30 and it was by way of a sick note from the Mississippi commission doctor. What is this, elementary school? Campbell came out to the ring to see the fans and said he would meet all his fans in the lobby. Guzman could face an indefinite suspension that would be honored by jurisdictions throughout the world. He had two hours to shed 3 1/2 lbs and he didn't even try. "I'm shocked and appalled that a professional fighter -- a two-belt champion with 28 fights -- could behave this way," said Campbell. "Not only did he not try to make the weight on Friday, but even after he'd made up his mind not to fight on Saturday he didn't have the courtesy to let us know that. He knows better." Good luck getting a title shot now, Guzman.

Boxing could do without it's talented fighters being suspended, but it could also do without situations like this. Hopefully they come to an agreement that doesn't involve him being suspended for a year even though he deserves it..

I think he deserves to be suspended.

I do as well. What a joke.

I also wonder how fast the turnaround can be for Nate, because I was really looking forward to seeing him fight somebody. I wonder if they can get him in the ring in the next month's time against some sort of short notice, stay busy type guy... probably not, but a guy can hope. At his age, he needs to fight to avoid getting rusty. He worked too hard to not even get the payoff of fighting.

Anybody thought about how Nate would be at 140? If the unthinkable happens and Malignaggi beats Hatton, Nate could move up and beat him down.

I've heard that Nate's going to have a tough time keeping his belts, but I know his IBF mandatory is Ali Funeka, so maybe that fight can happen soon.

I though Floyd Sr was training this guy, where was he when all this was going on.

Guzman let a lot of people down. Including himself
Something dosn't sound quite right over here, I would'nt be surprise to find out he's on dope or something, a rational person does'nt act like this, much less when the other opponent agrees to go on with the fight. I smell a rat..

I think he deserves to be suspended.
For a long time so he can feel it, and never pull something like this again, freaking looser...:thumbsdown:

Dont matter if a fighters talented or not rules are rules. Guzman and his team deserve a big fine and a lengthy suspension for their actions

I know, that's why I said in my post that he deserves it. It was a bitch move by Guzman. I just don't want to see it because I was looking forward to see him at LW and looks like I'm going to have to wait alot longer now.

heres DOn Kings statement on it and like many of us thought theres no mention of this dickhead being sick.

Official statement from Don King Productions on Joan Guzman's withdrawal from last nights scheduled bout vs. Nate Cambell: Former WBO 122- and 130-pound Joan Guzman did not make the lightweight limit of 135 pounds at Friday's weigh in (3 1/2 pounds over) and informed the Mississippi Athletic Commission in his hotel room at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino at approximately 6 p.m. CT tonight that he would elect to not fight IBF, WBO, and WBA lightweight champion Nate "The Galaxxy Warrior" Campbell, who had made the weight as prescribed at the official weigh in.
i liked Guzman but the **** should be banned for this ****
