|Camacho is in impressive form since loss.|
Saturday night at the O2 arena in London live on Sky Sports promoted by Eddie Hearn & Matchroom boxing we have the British title eliminator between cruiserweights Wadi Camacho (28) with a record of 10-1-0& 6 KO’s VS Tony Conquest (29) with a record of 11-1-0&5ko’s. This fight Is part of the “Carpe Diem” bill including a world title fight between Scott Quigg VS Yoandris Salinas & the feature of two 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist’s in Luke Campbell & the debut of heavyweight Anthony Joshua.
Wadi Camacho turned pro in January 2012 and after making a promising start to his career going 6-0 the big Cruiserweight stepped up competition in early 2013 when facing China Cark in a fight which probably came too early for Canning town man in which he went on to lose a 7th round stoppage in a very exciting fight. Fast forward two months he was entered in “The Prizefighter” competition where he went onto to win with two points decisions over Martyn Grainger & Nathan Owens before stopping Hari Miles in the final of the competition becoming “The Prizefighter” Champion 2013. Since than his fought once when he demolished 16-5-0 Attila Palko in June of this year leading to his fight this Saturday in a British Title Eliminator.
|Conquest has a lot to prove.|
Opponent & fellow Londoner Tony Conquest a former Southern Area Champion has been a professional a bit longer than Camacho. Turning pro in September 2009 Conquest went on a 3 year & 10 fight unbeaten run with wins over Toks Owoh for the vacant Southern Area Title in 2011 before defending it once VS fellow Brit Leon Williams in 2012. After the Williams fight Conquest fought & beat Ian Tims for the WBO International Cruiserweight Title via 7th round stoppage before fighting hard punching & dangerous fighter in Neil Dawson losing via 1st round knockout to the shock of some.
Come Saturday night expect to see a entertaining fight between two genuine British prospects with high ambitions of one day being British champions & possibly even further dreams of bigger titles. Both touted as prospects & both suffering career set backs early on when stepped up in competition this fight will be a gauge to see where these fighter’s are at now & how far they can progress in the future eager to please & rarely in boring fights this promises to give the fans excitement.
Prediction: I predict Wadi Camacho to win via stoppage in a entertaining fight in a British Title Eliminator both guys have lost but this will tell us who will move to the next level on the domestic scene.
