CAMACHO, MAKING TRANSITION FROM PROSPECT TO CONTENDER, TAKES ON MOLINA ON FRIDAY THE 13TH
Star Boxing's welterweight prospect, Alexis Camacho (17-1,16KO) will look to make the transition from highly thought of prospect to contender when he takes on the very dangerous Carlos Molina (14-4-1,5KO) on Friday February 13th at New York's famed Roseland Ballroom. The bout between Camacho and Molina is promoted by Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing and will be shown live as the main event of that evenings ESPN2 "Friday Night Fights" telecast. Camacho vs. Molina is scheduled for ten rounds in the welterweight division.
The 27-year-old heavy handed Camacho, who hails from Mexico but now resides in Austin, TX, last saw action November 14th stopping Edvan Dos Santos Barros in the second round of their scheduled ten rounder. The fight marked the second time the young Camacho fought as the co-feature bout on a nationally televised broadcast. Now Camacho looks to feed off his latest victory and break into the spotlight in his first nationally televised main event. Camacho carries dynamite in both of his hands and can end the show at any point during the fight.
The 25-year-old Molina, who also hails from Mexico, but now lives in Chicago, is a very tough and dangerous opponent, currently riding a 6 fight win streak. The only blemishes on his record have come against undefeated opponents, including a highly disputed draw and majority decision loss to jr. middleweight prospect Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Molina has a very fan friendly style as he rarely takes a step back and puts constant pressure on his opponents, which will make for a very entertaining match-up with the knockout artist Camacho.
"This is going to be an all out war come Friday the 13th. You have two Mexican warriors who are going in there with one thing in mind and that's going right at the other guy and throwing everything they have at them. We expect this fight to be a non-stop punching, all-action affair. Both of these guys wear their hearts on their sleeves and will leave it all on the line come February 13th," said Joe DeGuardia, CEO of Star Boxing.
