Kennedy wins by disqualification over Camacho
By John J. Raspanti, Doghouse Boxing (Oct 25, 2014)

Craig Kennedy
Cruiserweight prospect Craig Kennedy remained undefeated when referee Martin Williams disqualified Wadi Camacho for biting Friday night at the Rhydycar Leisure Centre, in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales.

Camacho, a southpaw, had said a few days before the bout took place that he didn't know that much about his opponent. His lack of preparation was obvious as Kennedy (10-0, 5 KOs) strafed him with lead right hands in round one.

Kennedy, 29, also pushed a few times and hit on the break, drawing a warning from Williams. Camacho (12-4, 8 KOs) came out with more purpose in round two, but Kennedy continued to connect with awkward looking right hands.

Camacho, also 29, did manage to land a combination, but also ate a few punches in return. A minute into round two, Camacho forced Kennedy into the ropes. After a clinch, Camacho leaned inside and bit Kennedy on the neck. Kennedy gestured to the referee who immediately disqualified Camacho.

Camacho, who was bleeding from cut near his left eye, looked stunned as he walked back to his corner. Kennedy pointed at his neck.

"He was in trouble," Kennedy told after the fight. "He expected to come in the four rounds and be in control."
