Description : Here we have an original onsite official fight sponsors boxing poster for the much anticipated comeback of the former WBA lightweight champion Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini who was contesting the WBO world super lightweight title. Lawlor Events Center, Reno, Nevada, USA, 6th March 1989.

Former WBA lightweight champ returned to the ring after a 4 year hiatus after losing his WBA crown to Livingstone Bramble. Now competing at the higher weight he faced off against the slick 2 weight champion in Camacho. Hector Camacho was the 3-to-1 favourite coming into this fight for the inaugural WBO super lightweight championship, though hardly with the crowd. The fans hooted him from the moment he stepped into the ring. Camacho answered by dancing in circles, dressed in a red matador hat with earlike protuberances, gold-sequined trunks, overskirt and shoes. He looked like a cross between Midas and Mickey Mouse.

Mancini chased him from the start, pressuring him. Camacho peppered away with his right jab, consistently the most effective punch thrown by either man all night. But to the crowd's displeasure, Camacho also ran, backpedalling and sidestepping the pressure. Mancini made what there was of the fight, with hard overhand rights and body shots, but he lacked precision in his punches and never did real damage. Tiring in the later rounds, Camacho stopped running and started tying Mancini up, and that turned what had been a boring fight into an unsightly one. When it was over, each man went to his corner thinking he had won."

Camacho seized the day with a split decision victory with scores from 2 judges 115/113 & one 112/116 in favour of Mancini.
