JOAN GUZMAN SET TO FIGHT NATE CAMPBELL FOR FREE?
Sources close to the situation have informed us that an offer was made to Don King Productions to have Joan Guzman fight Nate Campbell for free. The terms of the offer allow King to keep Guzman's entire purse and give it to Campbell. Guzman and Campbell were originally slated to headline a Showtime Championship Boxing card on September 13th in Biloxi, Mississippi, but Guzman came in 3.5 pounds over the lightweight limit before later being taken to the hospital and treated for dehydration. On the night of the fight, he was diagnosed as unfit to fight and pulled out of his scheduled bout with Campbell.
That's crazy...but hey, if Guzman is willing to do it, then why not?
Wasn't Castillo basically fighting for free when he fought Ricky Hatton?
