Nathaniel “Nate” Campbell III is an American former professional boxer who competed from 2000 to 2014. His professional nickname was “The Galaxxy Warrior” as an homage to the gym that made him.
As an active boxer, he held the unified WBA (Super), IBF and WBO lightweight titles from 2008 to 2009, as well as having challenged for the IBF super featherweight title in 2005 and the WBO junior welterweight title in 2009.
In his fourteen years as a pro, he fought everyone from Danny Garcia, Victor Ortiz, and Tim Bradley and having survived the racially charged streets of Jacksonville, Florida, Campbell was fueled with a sense of purpose.
We caught up with this legend during his 2019 induction into the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame.
