    Campbell Foils Robbery!

    By Flattop

    Former unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell foiled a strong arm robbery today in Tampa, Florida. Campbell, along with advisor Terry Trekas were exiting a Publix Supermarket in Tampa when they witnessed two men snatch a purse from a woman loading groceries into her vehicle. Campbell and Trekas chased the suspects to a nearby apartment, where the suspects barricaded themselves inside. Multiple units from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene in minutes, and captured both suspects inside the apartment. The victim’s purse was found inside the suspect’s vehicle. Sheriff officials on the scene advised Campbell that the men and their vehicle were suspects in at least six additional strong-arm robberies in the area. “Man, look here. That could have been my mom, my sister, or my wife. If someone wants to jack a dope man or something, that’s one thing, because they chose that life. But to do that to this woman, who is just minding her business getting her groceries, man I can’t let that go. Had it been my mom or something, I hope someone else would do the same,” said Campbell.

    Kudos to the guy. Didn't whip out the roscoe or interfere in a way that could have gotten folks killed, but he did help. Helped in the way he could, and in a safe manner that solved this crime (and apparently a recent string of others). Kudos upon him, for his presence of mind to do what he could.

    Oh, no! Can't do thaaaat. The felons have a right to life, remember?

    Yeah. Life away from others, for my nickel. Anybody know of a good island, 100 sq mi or more, remote location, not within 500mi of shipping lanes or air traffic? If we find one, we should create a new export market, of sorts.

    I really like his quote. He has a good, level-headed view of that situation.

    Just a shame that the muggers were able to barricade themselves in the apartment before he could do some speed-bag work on their melons...

    A funny story about Nate 'The Galaxy Warrior' Campbell . Years ago he's fighting Robbie Peden, a tough Australian kid, Campbell is dominating Peden,who is a pretty good fighter in his own right but not on the level of Campbell.Late in the fight, maybe even the last round,don't remember Campbell is showboating,sticking his chin out,daring Peden to hit him ! He was closer than he thought and Pedens hands faster than Nate needed them to be..LOL. BOOM,..Good Night Irene !.....KO for Peden. Campbell lost a fight that he was winning every second of every round and lost a shot at the title, took a couple of years to rebuild his career after that.
    Last year at age 36 or 37 he dismantled the Unified Lightweight Champ, Juan Diaz. Persistence paid off. Next month he fights Timothy Bradley for his title.
