Boxing News-It’s Macho Time again! – Camacho vs Duran


Legendary Mutiple World Boxing Champion and future Hall-of-Famer Hector “Macho” Camacho will return to the ring in the first fight of his World Tour, enroute to his retirement, this time not only as a fighter but as a promoter. Teamed with Jerry Reyes and Eddie Montalvo, the Macho Man will pit his remarkable 75-5 record against the tough, hard punching Saul “Baby” Duran, 36-16-2. Bringing 30 big knockouts into the bout, Duran, originally from Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, now living and training in Albuquerque, NM is looking to close the final chapter on Camacho’s storied career early..

Camacho, however, has other plans.

“This is the first step in closing my career the way I want to end things,” said the charismatic champ from his training camp in Tampa. “I want to fight maybe 4-5 more times, around the country and overseas. I still have an agreement with Mr. Anders Vester, a Nobleman and Gentleman, to compete for the vacant WPBF Middleweight title against former #1 Ranked Welterweight Allan Vester, in Kjellerup, Denmark. That bout was going to take place on March 26, 2010, but Vester injured himself while training, so I decided on staying busy and took on this fight with Baby Duran. I would like to have a chance to perform for my fans around the world before I move on to the next phase of my life. I pray Allan Vester gets well so we can make History together. Then I want to fight in Asia, Australia, Germany and end my Career where I started out in Madison Square Garden. We are talking about Denmark, Vienna, China or Japan or the Phillippines, Australia and Germany. Since Ali-Frazier’s “Thriller in Manila” there hasn’t been a Big Named Fighter compete in the Phillipines. Manny Pacquiao lives in the Phillipines and I would like to fight there before I retire. Maybe he’ll be in office when I arrive (The Macho Man laughs).”

As an active partner of Reyes-Macho Time Productions, Camacho brings a lot to the table, having done a remarkable job of promoting himself nearly his entire career.

“I became a household name not only because of my boxing ability and the level I fought at, but because of who I am,” explained Camacho who was one of the most widely recognized boxers from the 1980’s right through the early 2000’s.

Camacho-Duran will take place at the beautiful Kissimmee Civic Center, Kissimmee, Fl., on Friday, May 14, 2010. In addition to the legendary Camacho, the show will feature several of the area’s top young prospects, all excited to share the stage with a living legend. The top supporting bout will feature one of the world’s best female boxers, Jenna “Cowgirl” Shiver of St. Petersburg, Fl., 10-4-1, facing the rough Domincan Liliana Martinez of NY in a 6-round Jr. Featherweight bout. Shiver, who is also a well-known stunt-person, brings an exciting style and charisma into the ring, a perfect opener for the Macho Man.

Another rising star in female boxing is 4-time NY Golden Gloves Champ Patricia “Patty Boom Boom” Alcivar, 2-Time NYC Golden Gloves Champion, U.S. National Gold and Silver Medalist Silver and, First Female Boxer to Win an International Gold Medal. Patty, as is she is known, also has an acting career and this past February made her Runway Debut as a Model. She will be facing the experienced Treasure Saunders of Chicago in a 4-round special attraction.

Two local amateur rivals will square off in a middleweight bout when Danilo Albaladan and Paul Marfort join the paying ranks in a bold move against one another. In a day and age when most young prospects want to take the easy route, it’s great to see two fighters willing to step right into a real fight early in their careers.

Kissimmee’s Danny Pastrana, 1-1, will attempt to improve his record against Crystal River’s Jose Laguer, 0-1, who is 4-0 as an MMA fighter.

Orlando’s Roger Rosa will face St. Petersburg, Fl., Adrian Perez in what looks like fight of the night, while Perez’s teammate and Rosa victim Cesar Cisneros will try to pick up his first professional win against debuting Jesus Lule of Ft. Meyers, trained and managed by the affable veteran trainer Steve Canton.

    Yes the board game market is still alive and well. Looking in
    the continued success along with the obvious signs at language used and merchandise
    affecting our society depicting the Simpsons, an over-all acceptance
    is reached how the Simpsons has touched our society and
    made it impact, regardless of whether one thinks it
    can be for the good or for your bad. The allows consumers remain fully
    switched off by all of the globe for many years offering
    complete amusement together with leisure.

    The media for downloading has never been this easy and quick as it is now.
    s no secret that illegal file sharing is still rampant in many countries, such as US, however, it will not be government interference that eventually leads towards the
    end in the age of illegal downloads. The vulnerability has apparently been fixed because the interview with Russo occurred,
    and usernames are again safe and secure.
