Ilford’s Wadi Camacho makes it win number five with victory over Andy Ingram
TKO Gym fighters Wadi Camacho and Ryan Taylor maintained their winning ways on the undercard at Alexandra Palace on Saturday night where both blasted out second-round victories.
Cruiserweight Camacho, from Ilford, made it five straight victories with a second round stoppage of tough Derby fighter Andy Ingram, on the Matchroom promotion.
His rival, who had won both his previous pro contests including a win over future British champion Shane McPhilbin, looked his toughest pro test to date, but Camacho dictated the fight with his long-range southpaw jab.
The ‘Macho Man’ stepped up the pace in the second round, landing solid hooks to the head and body and with Ingram soaking up the shots, referee Ken Curtis rightly stepped in after two minutes 41 seconds of the round.
“I was working well to the body and I knew I would stop him. I caught him with a left hook and it was all over” said TKO gym trained Camacho, who aims to step up into title action soon.
Lightweight Taylor, continued his five-bout winning run as he stopped Hungarian Gyula Vajda in the second round, slamming home the heavy shots after a steady start.
‘Crash Bang’ stepped up the pace in the second round, finding the target with powerful hooks and Vajda, who arrived with a five-bout winning record, hit the canvas after taking a powerful right.
Two more knockdowns followed with Taylor well on top before referee Robert Williams halted proceedings after one minute 51 seconds of the round.
