St. Valentine's Day Massacre: Nate Campbell vs. Ali Funeka
After his fight with Joan Guzman is canceled due to Guzman's inability to make weight, WBA, IBF and WBO Lightweight Champion Nate Campbell forfeits his titles on the scales for the same offense prior to facing Ali Funeka. Coming in heavier, Campbell hurts Funeka with a right hand in the second round and fells him with another one. Funeka recovers well and takes over the fight in the middle rounds, bloodying Campbell's nose, but Campbell comes on strong again in the championship rounds, hurting Funeka with another right hand. Funeka tries to hold on but falls to his knees and into the ropes for another knockdown. After twelve rounds, Funeka is devastated to hear that he has lost his chance at the titles when Campbell edges him out by a majority decision.
