Hector Camacho Jr. Looks To Begin Title Run Saturday Night
Fri, 22 Jun 2012
This Saturday night Hector Camacho Jr. will be stepping into the ring against Bernardo Guereca and looking to get back on track to working towards a potential middleweight title fight.
Camacho Jr. (53-4-1, 28 KO) is 10-1 in his last 11 fights, with his only loss coming at the hands of David Lemieux for the WBC International Middleweight Title. Coming into this fight on a 16 month layoff, Camacho Jr. is ready to get into the ring.
?I am very excited for Saturday night,? said Camacho. ?We have had countless fights fall through, and then I dealt with the hand injury. But everything?s great now. I had a great training camp. Guereca is a strong fighter and also a fellow southpaw. I can?t wait to get in there and go to work.?
When Camacho Jr. is not training he donates a large part of his time to working with inner city kids and is a Board Member for the nonprofit organization Find A Dream.
?Find A Dream is a great organization with the best interest of the kids in mind,? said Camacho Jr. ?They strive to help build facilities for inner city youth to go to, to keep them off the streets and out of gangs. Too many kids nowadays lack direction or any kind of mentorship, and Find A Dream provides them with that outlet.?
Camacho Jr. is joined by an all-star team at Find A Dream, including former Olympic gold medalist and heavyweight champion Ray Mercer, former cruiserweight champion Bobby Czyz, Don Steele, amongst a few others.
Find A Dream is adamant about its boxers and Board members staying active within their community and portraying a positive image and role. In upcoming months they will be hosting several events to spread awareness and promote their cause.
Hector Camacho Jr. will be going to battle against Bernardo Guereca this Saturday night at La Villita Maverick Plaza in San Antonio Texas.
