Nate Campbell: I'm not vacating anything!

Jacksonville, FL: Contrary to several recent rumors, IBF/WBO/WBA Lightweight king Nate Campbell has no plans to vacate any of his world titles, especially the IBF belt. "I've heard this in a few places, and there's no truth to it whatsoever. There's no way I'll vacate my IBF title. Ms. Muhammad, Mr. Tucker, Mr. Peoples, and everyone else within the IBF believed in me, even when nobody else would so much as rank me..

"I would never turn my back on them. So folks can forget all this chatter about me vacating any of my titles. It ain't going to happen. Anyone who wants any of my titles is gonna have to come get them the old fashioned way. They're gonna have to beat me, and take them from me. After my WBO defense against Joan Guzman, I only have 2 options available to me. My IBF mandatory defense against Ali Funeka, who just knocked out Zahir Raheem for the #1 spot, or, the IBF rules would permit me to make a unification fight with Pacquiao for his WBC title. The rules allow unifications to take priority over mandatories. But that's it. After Guzman, my next fight will be with either Funeka or Pacquiao." said Campbell.
