Gabriel Campillo Injured in Training, Fight Off


If Spanish light heavyweight contender Gabriel Campillo didn’t have bad luck, he wouldn’t have any luck at all. On Wednesday afternoon, I received a text from perennial man-in-the-know Steve Kim that said simply, “U may want to check with ur sources in Oxnard but Campillo might be hurt.”


As it turns out, I actually do have Oxnard sources (and a few other places) and, sure enough, Campillo injured his back in training. Initially, the thought was that Team Campillo would wait and see if he could go in a couple days. But later in the evening, I was informed that I could go public with the news because the fight was off due to his injury. Backs are tricky things.
 
Campillo, 21-4-1 (8), was scheduled to face Sergey Kovalev, 18-0-1 (16), at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA on September 21st (televised on NBC Sports). In support is a solid fight between Ronald Cruz and Antwone Smith. No official word has come yet and no word has been given on a replacement opponent.
 
Campillo is a hard luck fighter who should be a two-time champion by now but outright robberies in the ring kept him from the gold. Hopefully, he recovers quickly and returns to the ring soon.
 
You can email Gabriel at maxgmontoya@gmail.com, follow him on Twitter at www.twitter.com/gabriel_montoya and catch him every Monday on “The Next Round” with Steve Kim. You can also tune in to hear him and co-host David Duenez live on the BlogTalk radio show Leave-It-In-The-Ring.com, Thursdays at 5-8 p.m., PST.
