PEACOCK BC's crowd-pleasing heavyweight prospect Wadi Camacho answers a London ABA call to box in Newcastle on Saturday night in the Ricky Hatton Belt Tournament.
The London ABA team faces a strong North-East Counties line-up, boxing under the Tyne-Tees and Wear banner, in a team match taking place on a show at the coastal town of Newbiggin-on-Sea.
The tournament is part of the Ricky Hatton Belt Competition launched recently and features clashes between area teams from all over the country.
Regular England squad member Camacho reached the finals of the British championships at Liverpool recently, where he was beaten by ABA champion Chris Keane, and is matched with Aycliffe's Sean Denham in a promising encounter.
He is joined by former Peacock clubmate Luke Turner, who goes north looking to add another win to his record.
Repton boxer Turner is booked for a clash in the welter division where the opposition will be supplied by Sunderland campaigner Glenn Foot.
