FEMALE MAIN-EVENT PUERTO RICO’S MELISSA “HURACAN”
HERNANDEZ AGAINST DOMINICAN REPUBLIC’S KATY “LA SUPER
BABY” HERNANDEZ FOR THE WIBA SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT WORLD TITLE.
!!!PRESS CONFERENCE TO BE ANNOUNCED!!!
Hector Camacho Jr., at times overshadowed by his father, 3 time world Boxing Champion, Hector Camacho Sr. is ready to supersede the expectations of himself and his fans with this battle against Guyana’s own, Denny “Deadly” Dalton.
Some believe that Camacho has experienced a string of disappointments, which were triggered when he lost a portion of his fan base after his battle against Jessie James Lejia in 2001. Despite the opinions of Nay-Sayers, Camacho Jr. is ready to toe the line, carry his name, and work to regain the success he experienced prior to his defeat against Israel Cardona last August. With the sport boxing having lost some of its luster in recent years, we expect Camacho to help rekindle our passion for the “sweet science”.
With a record of 51W/3L/1D, at the age of 31, mature, and motivated, he intends to hold down his title as the current heir of a proud Puerto Rican Boxing heritage. His next step to building on his career will be his 28th knockout this May.
Coming into this event Denny “Deadly” Dalton is looking to be known as the Camacho killer. He is Guyana’s own National Middleweight Champ. Memorable for his jaw dropping defeat of Keith Thomas, to take the National Junior Middleweight Title at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall. Later, he would be noted for knocking out Kevin Placide in the 10th round to win the WBE and WBC Cabofe titles of 2008. Labeled as “a Power Puncher” by the GBBC (Guyana Boxing Board of Control), Dalton is sure to give Camacho a challenging bout.
With a record of 16W/8L/1D, at the age of 35, Dalton is an above average fighter with the tenacity to go head to head with any opponent. He is known for his courage, determination, and grit in the ring. There is no doubt he is a hometown hero in Guyana S.A. We are anxious to see his performance in May.
Seon Bristol, president of Bris “O” Promotions said: Given both opponents dynamic work ethic, we believe that this match-up will be one for the history books.
In the main supportive bout, we have the following Ladies. The two are from very competitive Latin cultures, with nearly identical records, and the same last name, each fighter has a burning desire to win this bout. Melissa “Huracan” Hernandez, Puerto Rican Native, 12-1, two time World Champ, will go against, never defeated Dominican born and bred, 12-0, Lightweight Champ, Katy “La Super Baby” Hernandez.
Seon Bristol said: We are tapping into an elusive rivalry by matching Melissa against Katy. With the fuel of their venom, this night is sure to bring fire before the main card. We are expecting a full house, and look forward to welcoming a strong contingent of Latinos whom will attend to attend and support both Melissa and Katy in their quest for the Title.
