Hector Camacho Jr. Stops John David Charles With Devastating Body Shot In First Round

PhilBoxing.com


This past Saturday night in San Antonio, Texas, middleweight Hector Camacho Jr., stopped John David Charles just under a minute into the fight with a vicious body shot. This fight was the first time Camacho Jr. stepped between the ropes following an 18 month layoff, and showed the boxing world he is back and ready to make a contention run at the middleweight title.

?I feel great about the fight,? said Camacho Jr. ?I would?ve liked to get some work and rounds in, but I was very happy that all of my hard work paid off. I love fighting in San Antonio. The love I get from the fans and supporters means as much as the win.?

Currently Camacho Jr. is looking to return to the ring in late July in Mexico, with an opponent to be named. The middleweight veteran is adamant about remaining busy inside the ring going forward. He currently has a bout with David Medina lined up for September, and a win against the slick orthodox fighter can propel him up the rankings and move him one step closer to a title fight.

?After the win we are right back to work,? said Camacho Jr. ?My team and I have been focusing heavily on staying conditioned, and for the fight Saturday night we trained as if I was fighting 12 rounds. It?s all about staying strong mentally.?

Camacho Jr. has the experience and talent to continue to move up the middleweight rankings, and it is feasible that he can be fighting for hardware by the end of the year.

?Lastly, I want to thank all my fans and supporters here in San Antonio,? said Camacho Jr. ?And of course Find A Dream, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of inner city youth by providing them with a facility to help better themselves and work towards a goal.?

Camacho Jr. is an active Board Member of Find A Dream and strives to spread the awareness of the cause and the continual good work they do in communities across the country.

For more information on upcoming events Hector Camacho Jr. will be partaking in with Find A Dream visit www.findadream.org.
