Nate Campbell, an American professional boxer in the Lightweight division, made his debut fight on April 5, 2000 against Scoey Fields, a match he won by a knock-out. The American boxer was 27 at the time. He went on to win his next 22 fights as he carved down his weight to the super-featherweight limit of 130 pounds, after which he agreed to a match against Cuban fighter Joel Casamayor on January 25, 2003, a 10-round match which he eventually lost. His next match was against Edelmiro Martinez, a fight which ended in a draw. He won his next match against Daniel Ata by a unanimous decision and followed it up by a match with Australian boxer Robbie Peden in California on March 14, 2004, a match that he lost to a technical knock-out. He saw his second chance at fighting the Aussie boxer for the IBF super featherweight championship in Peden’s home country, but the match ended in a loss for Campbell in the eighth round.
On October, 2005 Campbell scored a 10th round technical knock-out over Almazbek “Kid Diamond” Raiymkulov in Tampa, Fla. A few months later he defeated Francisco Javier Olvera in the sixth round with a technical decision after Olvera suffered a cut on his eye. Campbell lost his next match by a split decision against undefeated Isaac Hlatshwayo on April 7, 2006, a loss which the boxer disputed, claiming that the African fighter had gained weight right before the fight. He went on to win an IBF eliminator title from Matt Zegan and followed this up with another win in his next eliminator match against Ricky Quiles. His most recent match was against Juan Diaz on March 8, 2008, a split-decision victory which made him the new IFB, WBA and WBO unified World Lightweight champ.
Campbell has won 32 out of a total of 38 fights, with 25 by KO, 5 losses and 1 draw.
