Harris looks to rebound from a controversial loss he suffered last month when he traveled to Germany, and challenge undefeated power puncher, Edmund Gerber (20-0, 13 KOs). Fully confident in his ability to outbox Sosnowski, Maurice is ready to show the European fans why he deserves to be the favorite in this tournament.

I'm certain the judges will be fair in this fight as it will be televised for the world to see. My goal is to win this tournament, get back into the top ten of the IBF, and shoot for that title shot. I've been in London for the last week and I'll be ready to shine on fight night."
"I know Maurice is ready to win this whole thing," said Boxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi. "Being that he just fought last month, I know he's in great shape. I expect him to shine in this tournament and bring home the prize."

Prospect Wadi Camacho Ready To Impress At Prizefighter - International Heavyweights
After just three professional outings Canning Town Cruiserweight prospect Wadi ĎMachomaní Camacho gets the chance to shine on the national stage this coming Wednesday, when he takes part in a Prizefighter Prospects bout that supports the latest installment of the highly successful Skysports televised Betfair Prizefighter series.
Camacho, who is managed and trained by Brian Lawrence at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, earned the coveted ĎProspectsí spot following his crowd pleasing, winning, performances against Ireland based Ugandan Moses Matovu in January, a sensational second round stoppage of Lithuanian hardman Rolandas Cesna in March and just last month his supreme domination of Lithuanian Igor Borucha.
Following his final training session last night, a relaxed Camacho said, ďIím so looking forward to it, itís good to be allowed to fight on a big stage, so itís gonna be bombs away really.
My first fight was a bit tough but I dealt with the guy on the night, the same with my other two, this one may be even tougher.
This kidíll be coming to impress also, you donít get that many opportunities when you first start out to be on such a big televised show. Heíll be coming to fight, but Iíll just do the business on him also.
I know itís early days but Iíve only got eyes for one thing. One day I want the Lonsdale Belt round my waist. I know if that is to happen I have to fight every fight as if itís a title fight, I have to win and I have to impress.
Brian, (Manager/Coach Brian Lawrence) has a pedigree of producing Champions, if I keep on winning, hopefully heíll get me a shot next year, or the year after, but right now though itís still a learning process and I have to still prove myself.
The way my preparations have gone, the training and the sparring, itís been excellent. My power has really increased, itís unbelievable and my weight is fantastic, you know, Iím weighing 14-8 now, Iíve comfortably come down from 15-6, which is spot on.
To all my fans can I say - Enjoy the night, I tell you all the time, Iím a cool guy and I will be showering big bombs on the night.Ē
