Middleweight Hector Camacho Jr. (50-3-1, 27 KOs) won a ten round split decision over former world champion Yory Boy Campas (92-15-1, 74 KOs) on Friday night at the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas. The bout featured a lot of clinching as the speedy 31-year-old Camacho looked to hit and grab the slower 38-year-old Campas, who mostly seemed unable to pull the trigger. Camacho was deducted three points by referee Laurence Cole during the contest. A point for a low blow in round three, a point for a punch after the bell in round four and a point for holding in round ten. Campas was cut over the left eye from an unintentional headbutt in round five, but neither fighter was down or hurt. In the end, scores were 95-92, 96-91 Camacho, 95-92 Campas. After the bout, former world champion Fernando Vargas announced he was interested in a comeback fight against Camacho. Where Campas goes from here remains to be seen as he is now 1-5-1 in his last seven fights.

WBA #1 super bantamweight Antonio Escalante (22-2, 14 KOs) scored an impressive second round KO over Carlos Fulgencio (11-4-1, 7 KOs). After a very exciting round one where both boxers landed big shots, Escalante dropped Fulgencio with a big right hand. Fulgencio tried to get up but fell back to the canvas and the fight was stopped. Time was 1:17.
Welterweight Abel Perry (12-3, 4 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Bobby Joe Valdez (9-7-2, 4 KOs). Referee Rafael Ramos waved it off at :32 just as Valdez was headed to the canvas.
Middleweight prospect David Medina (21-2, 10 KOs) pounded out an eight round unanimous decision over “Macho” Miguel Hernandez (20-10, 10 KOs). Scores were 80-72, 79-73, 78-74.
