Hector Munoz Shocks Hector Camacho Jr. Over Ten

By Tim Kudgis

Parker, Arizona - Hector Camacho Jr (57-6-1) and Hector Munoz (22-11-1) went to war for ten rounds.  Camachor Jr., who missed weight by 7 lbs, played the role as the counter puncher, while Fernando Vargas trained Munoz played the aggressor trying to walk Camacho Jr. down.  The fight went back and forth early, during which Camacho Jr had an easy time counter punching. As the fight went on his shape seemed to wear him down and at the same time Munoz picked up.

During the 6th round Munoz took control of the fight.  Munoz consistently pushed the action and kept pushing Camacho Jr. against the ropes.  As the fight progressed Munoz's trainer Fernando Vargas did an incredible job in the corner. In the end the judges scored the fight 97-93, 96-94, & 98-93 Munoz, who picks up a big win for his career.

Elmer Rivera (0-0-1) and Ray Palmer (0-1-1) battled to a very lackluster draw.  Both me seemed gassed after Round 1.  Palmer was content with throwing uninspired body shots.  While Rivera tried to mix it up.  After 4 rounds, the judges scored the fight 39-37 Rivera, and 38-38 x 2 for a majority draw.

Nephew of AZ Boxing Legend Michael Carbajal, Keenan Carbajal (1-1) was about to rebound from being stopped in his pro debut in a back and forth war with Rogeilio Venezuela (0-9).  Venezuela was the aggressor early pushing Carbajal around the ring for the 1st round.  In the 2nd, Carbajal flipped it around by starting to box from the outside. The 3rd saw the battle seesaw again,  Venezuela was able to stop Carbajal from boxing on the outside and turned in to a dog fight.  Finally in the 4th Carbajal landed a picture perfect body shot sending Venezuela to the canvas.  Venezuela was unable to  beat the count.  Your winner via 4th round TKO, Keenan Carbajal!

n the first fight of the evening James Walos (1-0) had a successful pro debut against fellow pro debut-er Mark Cordova (0-1).  Walos made short work of his opponent landing power shots at will while barely being touvhed.  Walos dropped him with a combination to the head.  Cordova beat the count but was sent to the canvas again quickly.  After the 2nd knockdown the ref called a halt to the action for your winner via 1st rd TKO, James "Great White" Walos.

***Note:  Camacho Jr - Munoz was originally scheduled at middleweight but Camacho Jr came in at 167 lbs so the bout was contracted to Super Middlweight***

average chin, speed, no heart w/minimal talent...no desire, which is why he fought in Parker, AZ...he blew all the $$ he made on Dad's undercards & what little he made 4 himself...what a sad excuse 4 a son...

All due respect to Camacho Snr, but Camacho Jnr has to be one the most disappointing sons of a boxer ever.

Was gonna ask how much he missed weight by....7 pounds.... jesus. Seriously... they should contract him to 2 weights below

Now let's hope that "Fat Boy FINALLY goes away but... he won't. I'd rather pay to see him eat than fight, he's probably better at it.
