Dat Nguyen Returns to Action Friday

dat nguyen29.08.07 - Undefeated featherweight prospect Dat "Dat Be Dat" Nguyen (11-0, 6 KO's) returns to action Friday, August 31 at the Casino Del Sol in Tuscon, Arizona, where he takes on Rio Rico, Arizona journeyman Baladan Trevizo (5-13-6, 1 KO).

In his most recent outing, a toe-to-toe slugfest with fellow prospect and stablemate Castulo Gonzalez (9-3, 3 KOs), Nguyen threw an amazing 886 punches in route to a hard fought 8-round unanimous decision victory. The bout, which aired live on the July 18 installment of ESPN2's Wednesday Night Fight's, will likely find itself as a candidate for fight of the year honors. Nguyen, who is trained by the heralded James "Buddy" McGirt, spent the majority of his time preparing for this bout with Victor Ramos at Ramos' Palm Bay, Florida gym, as McGirt was away working as a trainer for the third season of The Contender reality TV show.

The Nguyen - Trevizo bout will be a featured undercard attraction on promoter Don Chargin's card, which will be televised live on the Telefutura network. The headlining bout will feature Yuri Boy Campas (89-10, 72 KOs) and Norberto Bravo (24-13-3, 13 KOs) in a ten-round light middleweight affair. The bout will represent the 100th fight in the career of Campas.
