Alex Bunema improved to ( 31-6-2) on Friday night with a six-round dismantling of journeyman Mike McFail in front of 400 fans on Friday night at the Marriott Hotel in Ogden, Utah. The scheduled ten round main event was part of a pro/mm show put together in 7 days by Bob Oleson’s C.A.M. Promotions. Bunema, ranked #9 by the WBC in the 154 lb division, dropped McFail twice in round one and continued the carnage throughout the fight, dropping McFail again in round five. McFail fought back throughout the contest, never going into “survival mode,” but instead continually landed shots back on Bunema. For his part however, Bunema was relentless in his attack, and landed combinations at will. Trainer Billy Summerall continually urged Bunema to finish out the show, which he did at 6:35 of round six.
In other action, heavyweight Billy Zumbrun needed just two minutes to put Justine Fortune into the deep freeze with a counter right hand which found its mark. Zumbrun improved to 22-10-1 with the victory.
The third and final pro fight on the card had junior middleweight Willie Walton earning his third victory against one defeat as he stopped Chris Asher at 3:00 of round three.
As stated earlier, the entire show was put together in only 7 days which explained the small gate, but the fans were treated to good fights none the less as five exciting amateur bouts followed the pro portion of the show. CAM Boxing will return soon with a Northwest card which will be announced in the weeks to come.
