Tonight at 9 pm EST on ESPN2, Friday Night Fights is back with a doubleheader from one of boxing's best venues, the Bell Centre in Montreal, with a welterweight main event that pits prospect against veteran.
Kevin Bizier (19-0, 13 KO) of Saint-Emile, Quebec, puts his undefeated record on the line against former lightweight titleholder Nate Campbell (36-9-1, 26 KO). Campbell, 40, was drafted in as a replacement opponent on January 31, after John O'Donnell suffered an injury in training camp.
Though Campbell is past his best, he did score a TKO-9 upset of Victor Cayo last year in the Dominican Republic, and followed that with a win over Krzysztof Szot in Poland, so Campbell is getting himself familiar with the aging road warrior stage of his career, and has had some success recently going on the road and beating younger fighters.
In the co-feature, Ontario-based super featherweight Tyler Asselstine (12-0, 7 KO) will face Baha Laham (10-0-1, 4 KO), originally from Lebanon and now living in the international boxing hotbed that is Montreal.
