Camacho Jr. returns!

Contrary to recent reports of a fight suspension in Puerto Rico, Hector Camacho, Jr. (47-3, 27KOs) is set to face Sammy Sparkman (20-17, 9KOs) in a 10 round middleweight clash on January 17th at the Rock Arena in Kissimmee, Florida. Camacho, Jr., was recently embroiled in a controversial situation where it was alleged he backed out of a scheduled match up against Yory Boy Campos, in Tijuana. Mexico, after signing the fight agreement. Camacho’s camp vehemently denies any underhanded involvement and contends that he did not agree to or sign any legal binding papers agreeing to the match up. Also a point of strong contention is the alleged signature on the fight documents is not that of Hector Camacho, Jr, but is a forgery.
Lawyers representing Camacho have been in contact with the fight promoters asking for copies of the documents in question in an attempt to resolve this situation and clear Camacho’s name, but say they have yet to hear back from them. Camacho is looking forward to putting this to rest and get back to fighting his way into title contention.

“It’s a pity that a fighter with the undeniable talent that Hector Camacho, Jr., possesses, is marred by a situation he had nothing to do with, I as well as the fight fans look forward to witnessing the resurrection of a great fighter, starting with his fight on January 17th, he has been the consummate professional during this promotion; it has been my immense pleasure to work with him,” said promoter Sal Musumeci of Final Forum Boxing.
