Kevin Bizier
Youth is served. Canadian welterweight prospect Kevin Bizier remained undefeated with a technical knockout victory over former two-time division champion Nate “The Galaxy Warrior” Campbell in an ESPN Friday Night Fights main event at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

  Campbell, 40, stalked his opponent in round one. Bizier, 28, previewed some things to come by attacking Campbell’s body. Campbell missed with a sneaky inside right. An overhand right did land.

  In round two, Bizier (20-0, 14 KOs) pressed the action. He backed Campbell (36-10, 26 KOS) into the ropes and unloaded some thudding shots. Campbell ducked low and went to the body. Bizier’s edge in strength was apparent. He landed a double hook in round three. Campbell connected with an uppercut. The younger man was the busier fighter.

  Campbell can still fight. His hooks and bodyshots made the young man think. But age and other factors (injury) were at play here as well.
Campbell, who won the lightweight crown in 2008, opened up in the first minute of round four. Bizier doubled up on his left hook. Campbell beckoned the Canadian forward. The much bigger prospect obliged with some more work to the body.  

In round five, Campbell caught some heavy shots to the chin. Bizier kept the slower Campbell on the ropes and unloaded. Campbell tried a jab hook combination that drew air. Campbell was constantly beat to the punch in round six. His ring savvy was apparent, but Bizier was pushing him around.

  In round seven, Bizier went for the knockout. A triple hook knocked Campbell into the ropes. The beatdown continued. Campbell landed a right that had no effect.

Campbell backed into the ropes in round eight. The onslaught to the body persisted. The gutsy veteran wouldn’t quit. He landed a hard right of his own. After the round ended,  Campbell told his corner that he had aggravated an old back injury. He couldn’t move. His corner indicated to the referee that the fight was over. It’s ironic since Campbell had enjoyed some of his best success in round eight.

"I'm going to 140 where I can fight, where they don't come in at 160 pounds," he told ESPN's Bernardo Osuna. "I'm a fighter."
