2016 looks set to be a massive year for Wadi Camacho

The Canning Town cruiserweight has a tune up on the undercard of David Haye’s comeback fight at the O2 on Saturday, January 16 before he finally gets his shot at the Southern Area cruiserweight title on Saturday, February 27.

Camacho will meet Rochester’s highflying Dan Woodgate at the famous York Hall, Bethnal Green
.
Promoter of the event, Mickey Helliet said: “This fight has the potential to be one of the best small hall fights of the year. A lot of boxing insiders have told me how they see it as a real 50/50 fight. Whoever delivers on the night will win but there will be no room for error. Tickets are flying out and I’m not surprised because it is exactly the kind of fight I’d want to see as a fight fan.”

Camacho is a former ‘Prizefighter’ champion and says that with new trainers Barry Smith and Harry Andrews in his corner, he’s a much improved fighter.

The 30 year old southpaw said: “People will see next year that I’ve made a lot of changes to my boxing.

“I’m moving more instead of just looking for power shots. I still have the power, but I’m not relying on it as much. Everyone will see a much improved Wadi Camacho in 2016.”

Woodgate, has only just moved up to the 14st 4lbs division but has remained unbeaten since moving up in weight.

Woodgate has posted three straight points wins – without Camacho noticing.

The Londoner said: “I don’t know anything about him. I’m just concentrating on my own boxing, so that whoever I get in the ring with, I will be able to deal with them.

“I’m moving more instead of just looking for power shots. I still have the power, but I’m not relying on it as much. Everyone will see a much improved Wadi Camacho in 2016.”
