Kennedy keen to finish Camacho business

Craig ‘The Kid’ Kennedy’s (10-0, 5KO) first meeting with Wadi ‘Machoman’ Camacho (12-4, 8KO) was supposed to be his break through bout but he left the ring unfulfilled and at the centre of a storm. The Welshman was sharp in the opening round, he circled and his shots caused the visitor to cut with blood soon trickling from Camacho’s nostrils, too. In the second stanza, Camacho closed the distance and it led to one of Welsh boxing’s biggest talking points in recent memory. A clinch commenced, it was quickly broken up by referee Martin Williams’ arms, waving to end the contest. Camacho, a former Prizefighter tournament winner, was disqualified for biting Kennedy’s shoulder – an accusation he instantly denied, just as Kennedy angrily vented at the Londoner for the alleged actions. The cruiserweights weren’t even out of the building and it seemed like everyone at the Rhydycar Leisure Centre in Merthyr Tydfil who wasn’t booing angrily, was instead calling for an immediate rematch; a conclusive ending, answers to questions that weren’t satisfied. Bad blood commenced. Once a British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) hearing fined Camacho, it was quickly made again and would once again headline a Sanigar Events show on Eurosport (Sky Ch. 412). This time it will take place at the Newport Centre, 30 miles closer to the M4 which will aid Camacho’s exit out of Wales which he’s likely to be looking forward to, win or lose.
