Camacho Aims To Conquer Conquest in New Run

Prizefighter Cruiserweights III champion Wadi Camacho will face Tony Conquest at The O2 on October 5, live on Sky Sports, as the ‘Macho Man’ moves up to a “new platform” in his career.

The bout has potential to become a final eliminator for the British title and Camacho is ready to use his Prizefighter success as a springboard to clean up in a wide-open division, a journey that will start against former WBO International champion Conquest.

“I am very strong and now I have climbed to a new platform,” said Camacho. “The platform I am on now and that I am training for is a different level.

“Hopefully Eddie can make this a final eliminator for the British title but I have to show everyone the ability that I have. The division is very open, I made an error when I lost in March and I have bounced back up and shown everyone that I don’t have to use just my power, I can use my boxing ability as well.

“October 5 will be amazing and I will be shocking people when they see just how brilliant a boxer I am.

“After Prizefighter I only had five weeks until I took the fight in Bolton and I showed in the first round there that I don’t have to load up and I took a lot of shots in my arms as I have been working on my defence.

“I have watched Tony Conquest a few times when I have been at York Hall supporting a couple of other fighters. I have seen him box and he is an okay boxer but I don’t think there will be any trouble. It is going to be a great performance from me because it is time to show the different quality of fighter that I am.

“I don’t think there is anything new that he is going to bring that I haven’t faced before. I think he is a very standard boxer and I am a complete package. I believe I am stronger than him in every single aspect.”

Camacho v Conquest is part of a bumper bill in Greenwich as Olympic Gold medal star Anthony Joshua MBE makes his professional debut. Further action comes in the shape of British lightweight World title contender Kevin Mitchell, unbeaten Welsh featherweight star Lee Selby, former Team GB starlet Martin J. Ward and two other Prizefighter champions going toe-to-toe in Larry Ekundayo and Glenn Foot.
