Bizier unfazed by opponent change
Media and onlookers had the opportunity to witness a prime and ready Kevin Bizier (19-0, 13KOs) Tuesday, at the GYM public workout in preparation for his battle against former unified titleholder Nate Campbell (36-9-1, 26KOs). Bizier was expected to face awkward southpaw John O’Donnell up until about 2 weeks ago when O’Donnell withdrew due to a fractured hand forcing Campbell, an orthodox pressure fighter, to step in as a replacement.
Could the opponent switch on short notice create problems for Bizier? If so, the undefeated welterweight did not appear to be too bothered about the switch: “In a last minute situation, it’s easier to go from facing a left hander to a right hander. We have a boxing strategy similar to when we fought Tyner; strong defense, throw punches at the right time and be disciplined throughout the fight.”
