Decastro: I’ll Be Sajauka’s Worse Nightmare On Saturday Night

Bardney, Lincolnshire Middleweight Nathan ‘Nightmare’ Decastro makes his third professional outing this coming Saturday, when he takes on Lithuania’s Deividas Sajauka on the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events promoted CAPITAL PUNISHMENT at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.

Back in March, Nathan made a sensational start to his pro career, stopping Paulius Butvidas after just one minute and five seconds of the first round.

On August 2nd Nathan made his second pro outing, scoring a shut out points win over Sergej Drob. However to put this result in context it was just the Monday prior to the fight that the cast on his leg was removed, following a serious ankle injury just a few weeks earlier.

Campbell and Coyle target Hull summer blockbuster

Luke Campbell MBE and Tommy Coyle say that the pressure is on them to claim big wins at the Ice Arena in Hull on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports – so they can set up a huge clash in the city next summer.

The Lightweight duo face big step-up fights on Saturday night, with Coyle meeting former World champion Michael Katsidis and Campbell facing Argentine Daniel Brizuela, who shared a rollercoaster war with Coyle in February.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has made no secret that a clash between the two at Hull City’s KC Stadium next summer would be a huge event for the city and for British boxing, and both men believe that if they keep winning, a fight is inevitable, and Campbell would love to box outside in his hometown for the second time having made his professional debut last July at Hull KR’s Craven Park.

Boxing Insight: The Donaire Principle

Nonito Donaire Jr. didn't have to fight an opponent as strong and massive as Nicholas Walters to rejuvenate his career. He could have started gradually as he stepped up on a higher division to get the feel of it, faced opposition he could handle, one that made him look good and posed just enough amount of threat before dealing with the inevitable.

I watched Donaire shift his head from side to side to avoid being hit, and wondered what made him make such a call.  It was a decision that sparked interest and therefore good for the sport, but easily translates as a poor business strategy.  After his loss to Rigondeux one would have thought a solid business outlook was in order to move on and rebuild his elite status in the fight business.  I noticed at first he had improved much in his head movement and was not as hittable as in the past.  He looked agile and well adjusted to his new weight.  The foot movement was good despite the added poundage, even dashing the Dempsey Roll with a killer's attentiveness and fancy.  I have not seen Nonito Donaire fight that well for some time up to that point.
