Cruiserweight Wadi Camacho admitted he was a happy man after he slammed his second pro win, a two-round triumph over Lithuanian Rolandas Cesna, at York Hall on Sunday.

Former amateur international Camacho, who won his debut on points in January, was in better form when he returned to York Hall on Miranda Carter’s Sunday show.

Boxing a rival who had never been stopped in seven bouts, Camacho opened up the Lithuanian with accurate jabs and solid crosses and Cesna was too busy covering up to throw many punches in reply.

The Canning Town fighter sensibly switched his attack to the mid section and the tattooed Lithuanian clearly felt the effect of the punches followed by more solid shots to the head and referee Jeff Hinds had seen enough after two minutes and 29 seconds of the second round.

“I felt better than I did in my debut, this time. I relaxed more and let the punches flow,” said Camacho.

Another local winner on the show was Scott Hartley, a former Scottish amateur international now based in Stratford, who outpointed Luton’s Marco Stephenson in the bout of the night on the Left Jab promotion.

Both were staggered by shots in a hard-hitting final round, before the referee scored Hartley a 40-38 winner for his first pro win.
