Elvin Ayala felt the excitement the moment he found out he’d be fighting Hector Camacho Jr. next month on national television.
“I started getting goose bumps,” he said.
Just don’t expect him to be star-struck once the bell rings. Ayala (25-4-1, 11 KOs) is all business as he prepares for the first defense of his World Boxing Council U.S. National Boxing Council (WBC USNBC) middleweight title in the co-feature of “All In,” presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports on Friday, March 30th, 2012 at Foxwoods Resort Casino’s MGM Grand Theater. Ayala’s 10-round showdown against Camacho Jr. (53-4-1, 28 KOs) will be televised on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights.”
“He’s coming in to fight hard,” Ayala said, “but I plan on leaving with the belt.”
The 10-round main event of “All In” features Philadelphia’s “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy (21-1-1, 11 KOs) – ranked No. 4 in the WBC – defending his North American Boxing Federation (NABF) lightweight title again
