Wadi Camacho, Ryan Taylor Go For First Belts on 3/9

Wadi Camacho and Ryan Taylor will box for their first pro titles at Betfair’s ‘London’s Finest’ show at the Wembley Arena on March 9, live on Sky Sports.

‘Macho Man’ Camacho faces fellow unbeaten cruiserweight China Clark for the English belt while ‘Crash Bang’ Taylor (7-0-1) meets Liam Shinkwin (5-0-1) for the Southern Area lightweight title on a crunch night of action in the capital.

While Taylor is in sunny Spain in a training camp with stable mates Darren Barker, who tops the bill, and Lee Purdy, who battles Carson Jones for the IBF International welterweight title, the news that Camacho would fight Leeds’ Clark for the English strap has given the 27 year old a huge boost in the gym.

“When Eddie said I would have an English title fight on March 9 my eyes just lit up, I was so happy,” said Camacho. “I was expecting to go through the titles starting with the Southern Area title but the English title is much bigger. Anybody who wants to go and fight for the British title has to go through the national title first so once I have the English title they will have to come and fight me for it.

“The best title domestically is the British title and the English title has come earlier than I planned and that is fantastic. I said when I turned professional that I wanted to make my mark on the cruiserweight division and this is all part of the plan.

“I believe I have earned this. I have proved that I can blast people, I can go through a hard battle like I did with Hari Miles and I have shown that I can take a punch as well.

“The stage just keeps getting better and better. Boxing for the English title at Wembley Arena on a bill with all the Matchroom boys is going to be great, I can’t wait.”

Title fights for Camacho and Taylor appear on a stacked undercard of huge fights for Barker and Purdy, a rematch of the tasty Southern Area light welterweight title bout edged by Danny Connor over Chris Evangelou when the pair clashed in September.

Betfair Prizefighter champion Larry Ekundayo, unbeaten Islington middleweight John Ryder and former Team GB star Martin J. Ward are also in action in fights to be announced soon.
