Nevin v Campbell at 20.45pm

August 11, 2012

Britain’s Luke Campbell and Ireland’s John Joe Nevin will resume one of the most intense and engrossing rivalries in amateur boxing today when they fight for Olympic bantamweight gold at ExCel arena.

The pair have set up a showdown that had seemed likely since the 56kg draw was made.

Nevin won their first  contest at the European Union Championships in Copenhagen in 2009, but Campbell had his  revenge when he won on countback in last year’s World Championship semi-final.

The nation awaits.
