Puerto Rico vs. Mexico Showdown in Charlotte Pro Boxing Match this Saturday, August 16, 2014

     Promoter Jonathan K. Nazeer will bring familiar names into the ring this Saturday when he features a night of professional boxing in Charlotte, North Carolina. Bouts taking place at the Carole A. Hoefener Center will include a long-standing rivalry between Puerto Rican and Mexican fighters in the Main Event when Hector “Machito” Camacho Jr., now residing and fighting out of Puerto Rico, faces Miguel Angel Munguia of Mexico. The fight will be a rematch of their 2013 bout that took place in Aruba with Camacho scoring a TKO in Round 5.

Camacho has a notable record of 57 wins, 6 losses, and 1 draw (31 wins by KO). And while Munguia’s record doesn’t appear as well on paper—he is 29-31-1—he has remained the busier fighter the past two years, fighting eight times in 2012 and seven times in 2013. He also fought in March of this year. Aside from having remained active, Munguia no doubt carries into the ring that hunger and world-renowned toughness that is traditional of Mexican prizefighters. Twenty-five of his 29 wins he won by knockout, meaning he could be a danger at any moment of the fight.

Camacho Jr. fought twice in 2012 and three times in 2013. He hasn’t fought in almost a year (since September 11, 2013), but will rely on experience (he’s been fighting professionally since 1996) and hopefully some genes passed on to him by one of the greatest Puerto Rican world champion boxers of all time, his father Hector “Macho” Camacho.

In the Co-Main-Event, JKN Boxing Promotions will feature former NFL football player Ray Edwards taking on local Heavyweight fighter Djuan Hughey (1-8) of Charlotte. Hughey (listed in as “DJ” with last name spelled “Hughley” and a hometown of Augusta, Georgia) last fought in February of 2013 at the Mohegan Sun Casino Resort in Connecticut, on the undercard of an ESPN Friday Night Fights broadcast (Hughey’s bout wasn’t televised).

The former football standout, Ray Edwards, resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is undefeated with a record of 7-0, with 4 wins by KO. He gave up football in 2011, two years after landing a 27.5 million-dollar deal with the Atlanta Falcons. He was once heralded for a statement he’d made that boxing is safer than football, saying that boxing makes him less exposed to physical harm, and many agreed.

Also appearing on the undercard that Nazeer has billed “Rumble in the City”, Kelly Lee Henderson Jr. (0-2) of West Virginia hopes to get on a winning track when he faces hometown fighter Robby Robertson, who is making his professional boxing debut. Robertson is trained by Kelvin Seabrooks, a former IBF World Champion boxer from Charlotte.

Another undefeated Heavyweight boxer, Chris Hancock (7-0) of Detroit, Michigan is scheduled to appear against a fighter to be announced. Unbeaten Welterweight William McElroy (3-0), also of Detroit, will be matched in yet another undercard bout that evening.

Several other bouts, professional and amateur, will be presented throughout the evening in what appears to be an exciting night of boxing in the Queen City.

Location: Carole A. Hoefener Center, 610 E 7th St, Charlotte, NC 28202. Doors open at 7PM. First bout starts at 8PM. General admission seating is $35. For more information or to purchase tickets visit
