Philadelphia (March 19, 2014)–Back on February 21, Fernando Carcamo (16-5, 13 KO’s) scored the only knockout in the quarterfinal round of the Boxcino 2014 lightweight tournament. He will look to continue to that momentum when he takes on Miguel Gonzalez (23-3, 16 KO’s) in the semifinals which will take place on March 28 at the 4 Bears Casino & Lodge in New Town, North Dakota.
The bout was be televised Live on ESPN, ESPNDeportes+ and WatchESPN beginning at 9 PM Eastern.
Carcamo of Ciudad, Mexico looked terrific in dispatching previously undefeated Samuel Neequaye in the 2nd round and now he turns his attention to the accomplished Gonzalez who has been on a roll as of late.
The performance over Neequaye did not just happen by coincidence as Carcamo put in the work needed to impress the audience who was watching around the world.
“It was all a part of the training camp we had. It was the best preparation that I ever had and I was happy to materialize it with a knockout and it was even better that it was the only stoppage of the quarterfinals,” said Carcamo.
Carcamo respects Gonzalez but he feels that this fight should be another where he will have his hand raised at the end of the fight.
“He is a pretty good fighter but he has weak points and we will attack them and break his spirit.”
Carcamo knew going into the tournament that it would be a great chance to showcase his ability and become a player in the lightweight division.
“I am just really motivated. I know this will take me to a completely different level and get me really close to a title shot. I am 100% into this and looking forward to this fight and want to give the fans what they want,” finished Carcamo.
