Comments

Outstanding lightweight title fight, highly recognised amongst fight watchers of the era as the bout that turned Camacho from a fearless dynamo into a safety first stylist for the remainder of his long career. In fairness to Hector, he showed tremendous character here against his talented Puerto Rican rival, surviving real moments of adversity in the 5th and 11th rounds, having been badly hurt in both sessions.

The 5th round easily warranted a 10-8 score in Rosario’s favour. He staggered Camacho early, then poured it on, hammering the speed demon consistently until the bell. That Hector was able to regroup so effectively was testament to his previously unproven fighting heart. And then it was so close to all falling apart for him again in the penultimate stanza, as Edwin again rocked him to his boots, this time too late in a round that Camacho had edged up to that point, preventing Rosario from earning another 10-8 score on this card and, what ultimately would have been, a narrow win.
