The latest news from the local boxing scene

Wadi Camacho is aiming for his sixth Southern Area title victory in two years at York Hall when he appears on a special night at the Bethnal Green venue on March 17.

The east London fighter plans to repeat an earlier win over Danny Couzens, when he appears on the show staged by a fighter he has long admired, former two-weight world champion David Haye, under the Hayemaker Promotions banner.

The show also features a British cruiserweight title fight between Matty Askin and Stephen Simmons, plus Olympic heavyweight medallist Joe Joyce and American giant Donnie Palmer.

“It’s going to be a special night and I plan to play my part with another good title win,” vows the 32-year-old Camacho, who training has included sessions at the Haymaker gym in west London.

Camacho stopped rival Couzens in six rounds in July 2016 at York, Hall but since then the loser has bounced back with three good wins, including a clear points victory over previously unbeaten north Londoner Spiros Demetriou.

Camacho hopes that the 20th victory in his six year pro career will lift him to a new level towards his target of a British title challenge.

“I need to move onto bigger and better things,” he added.

• Former amateur title winner Johnny Coyle continued his unbeaten pro campaign outpointing Nicaragua’s Miguel Aguilar at Brentwood on Saturday.

It was Coyle’s first win since moving to join the south London stable of Al Smith and he showed the usual southpaw skills to chalk up a convincing points win.

Now the 24-year-old hopes to get an overdue title chance in the months ahead.

For two other local fighters, though, it was a disappointing weekend.

Charlie Duffield and Charlie Driscoll were due to appear on the Frank Warren show at York Hall on Friday, but their contests were called off on a night when travel problems in snowy conditions wreaked havoc.

Sam Cox, Diego Burton, Ossie Jervier are all booked for action on an exciting Champs bill at York Hall this Saturday.
