Puerto Rico’s Hector “Macho” Camacho Jr., son of the late legendary multi-champ and future Hall of Famer Hector “Macho” Camacho, will fight Mexico’s hard punching Saul Duran in a 12 round middleweight grudge match set for October 17th at the Lakeland Center in Lakeland, Florida.
Camacho, 58-6-1 32 KO’s, vows to avenge the defeat his late father suffered at the hands of the rugged Duran, 40-19-2 33 KO’s, when on May 4th, 2010, Duran scored a stunning upset victory knocking Camacho to the canvas for one of the few times in his thirty year career and winning a unanimous decision.
“I’ve been waiting for 4 years to get Duran in the ring” says Camacho Jr. “It’s kind of a grudge match for me, he beat my dad who never had a chance to get a rematch. I want to avenge that defeat in my father’s honor.”
Camacho’s agent Steve Tannenbaum weighs in, “This is a fight that Junior (Camacho) has longed for. He’s really motivated for this one. Duran is no cakewalk; he’s in great shape and is gunning for this fight. He will be throwing big bombs and pressuring Camacho all the way.”
“Revenge For My Father”: Hector Camacho Jr. vs Saul Duran is being promoted by Carlos Valle (Valle Promotions) and Jerry Reyes (Reyes Macho Time Promotions). A big undercard is being put together which will feature many of Florida’s rising young boxing stars and will be announced shortly.
