HEAVYWEIGHT Wadi Camacho scored his second victory in the Great Britain boxing squad's three-match tour of the United States, with a two-round triumph over Stacey Harrington in St Louis Missouri, on Saturday night.

The 'Macho Man', who proved too good for the stylish Anthony Mack from Dallas, Texas, in his opening bout on the tour, displayed his punching-power, stopping Michigan rival Harrington on Saturday to complete an impressive double.

Peacock boxer Camacho poured on the pressure from the start as he slammed home heavy-hitting attacks, rocking the American national silver medallist with powerful hooks.

He maintained the pressure to put Harrington in trouble in the second session when the referee signalled the end, on the night the GB squad recorded a 7-4 team triumph.
