Nate Campbell (32-5, 25KOs) defeated former undefeated lightweight champion Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz (33-1, 17KOs) in a split decision last night in Cancun Mexico. Diaz, who’s smothering style breaks down his opponents in the later rounds slowed after a cut over his left eye. Campbell continued to apply pressure throughout the entire fight and clearly was the fresher fighter in the last five rounds. The cut was a result of a punch by Campbell, however Referee Jesus Lopez deducted a point, thinking it was the result of a headbutt.
Judges score cards read: 114-113 Diaz, 115-112 Campbell, 116-111 Campbell
