Over ten scheduled rounds at boxing's spiritual home of York Hall this Saturday, Wadi Camacho (21-8) is gearing up to take on local London lad Deion Jumah (11-0) for the vacant English Cruiserweight Title

Camacho was forthcoming with tales of his past and his views on boxing, in a recent interview with Eat, Sleep, Boxing, Repeat,

"Im aware of Jumah he was with Team Sauerland and now hes here with Steve Goodwin," said Camacho

"He's been calling everyone out. Aside from Okolie this will 100% be my toughest opponent. Lawrence was really awkward but him aside I can beat anyone in Britain on my day"

"Camp has been beautiful, I'm doing absolutely everything required to make sure I'm ready, i don't feel like I'm finished in boxing".

In confident mood Camacho is potentially in the best shape of his career, but was very quick to say if unsuccessful this weekend he may consider retirement.

At 34, Camacho still has plans in the sport, although it feels like he's been highly placed in the British rankings forever. A career thus far that has seen him grace the ring with opponents such as Lawrence Okolie, Isaac Chamberlain, Craig Kennedy, Arfan Iqbal and Stephen Simmons.

"Arfan Iqbal was my best win. It made me feel reborn," Camacho enthused

"90% of people doubted me because I'd already lost to him but I chose the fight with him and knew what i could do"

The fight ended at the end of the 7th, going to the scorecards due to a back injury sustained by Iqbal after he fell through the ropes; but by this point the judges basically had Camacho winning everything.

"Its hard to say who has been the hardest hitter, I spar heavyweights and the power doesn't bother me. If i had to pick id probably say Lawrence Okolie".

"I've been in Camp with people like Tony Bellew and Derek Chisora. Derek Chisora believes in me. Ask him what I'm capable of. He has seen me sparring. He's even said to me if i can fight like i spar then i can do anything in boxing. Mindset is everything, I've went through problems and still put in great performances and had good wins".

Camacho's energy is mesmerizing and it seems as though he has the bit between his teeth.

The show is packed from top to bottom with three title fights on the card currently.

Wadi added he would like to thank all his sponsors for their support.
