Description : Here we have the original onsite paper poster for the eagerly awaited battle that took place at the Madison Square Garden Arena for the WBC Lightweight Title between 2 of Puerto Rico's finest combatants, reigning & defending Champion, brash, flash Hector Camacho & former champion Edwin Rosario. The first three rounds were swept by Camacho on all three judges' scorecards by keeping Rosario away with his jab and out-circling the pursuing challenger. In the fourth, Rosario began to turn things around by landing an uppercut in the final seconds, which earned him the round.

In round five, Rosario connected with a left to the chin as Camacho was getting ready to fire a right hand, and Camacho's knees buckled. On the verge of falling, Camacho took his distance for the rest of the round, and Rosario continued on pursue, landing other damaging blows. Rounds six to ten were dominated by Camacho (out of a possible fifteen combined rounds, as three judges were scoring the fight, Rosario was given only one round between rounds six and ten by one judge).

In round eleven, Rosario hurt Camacho again, with a left hook through Camacho's guard, Hector fled around the ring to avoid Rosario's punches. Rosario continued landing in round twelve, also sweeping the round on all judges' cards. Minutes later, Camacho was announced as winner and still WBC world Lightweight champion by a split decision: judge: Tony Castellano 115-113 | judge: Luis Rivera 113-114 | judge: Stuart Kirshenbaum 115-113. The fight's result proved controversial, Puerto Ricans and other boxing fans who saw the fight have argued about the scoring ever since.
