HECTOR CAMACHO vs. VINNY PAZIENZA (PPV) 

Description : Here we have an original closed circuit PPV fight poster for the WBO Light/welterweight world championship bout at the Convention Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA,. Billed as "Put up or Shut Up" 3rd February 1990.

Camacho's entry into the building's prize ring in Indian headdress and multicolored buckskin trunks incited raucous boos, the usual reaction to the boastful and often preening and outrageous champion.... But as Camacho left the arena, fans crowded around to pat him on the back, amid the parting cries of ''Macho time'' from a follower of the fighter who is known as the Macho Man.

He beat Pazienza on a unanimous decision, and did it with nifty footwork and stinging combinations, while largely resisting the jab-and-grab tactics that had become an all-too-familiar habit in recent years. Against the raging Pazienza, who snarled, butted and shoved, Camacho, the World Boxing Organization junior-welterweight champion, showed poise and savvy. It was a bit of the old fluid Macho Man not seen since August 1985, when Camacho boxed Jose Luis Ramirez silly to win a world lightweight title. Against Pazienza, Camacho deftly used his feet and defensive intuition to avoid the wild swings of his emotional foe, and repeatedly intercepted Pazienza's charging figure with three- and four-punch combinations.

Camacho the counterpuncher timed his blows smartly, shooting them from a variety of angles and landing a high percentage in the 12-round bout. When Pazienza resorted to the rough stuff, Camacho coolly awaited the intervention of Referee Tony Perez, who repeatedly warned the challenger for his tactics and eventually penalized him a point for butting.

Outclassed, Pazienza tried mightily to unravel Camacho. That he couldn't was no discredit to him. With cuts over both eyes and on his right cheekbone, and with blood streaming down his face in the final rounds, Pazienza stubbornly resisted the inevitable result. Mad with the notion of beating Camacho, in the last round, as Camacho pounded him, Pazienza hit himself with a flurry of pitty-pat punches and laughed, a touch of dementia in center ring. judge: Jose Salcedo 117-116, John Rupert 115-112, Richard F. Murry 119-109 all scored in favour of the defending champion Hector Camacho.

''I looked the best I ever did in a long time,'' said Camacho afterward. ''I think I'm the only Mr. Excitement out there today.''
