Wadi Camacho’s Bite Fight Ended In Debar

With a stiff and heated competition, it comes as no surprise that professional sportspersons can sometimes be on the warpath. We’ve seen this happen quite a few times now, but at times the competition doesn’t merely take a turn for the worse. In certain cases, the competition takes a turn for the childish and that’s when players end up with bite marks.

Wadi Camacho’s bite fight ended in debar

After Luis Suarez’s latest biting incident on the pitch, in the sport of boxing it is Wadi Camacho. In the pantheon of all-time sporting biters, perhaps there are several interesting stories in the history of boxing. Seeing that, he is not the first wrestler to have a nibble, nevertheless the “bite fight” ended up in disentitlement of Wadi Camacho.

Towards the end of the second round of his clash with invincible Craig Kennedy; the cruiserweight prizefighter champion was disqualified.

With fan’s soaring expectations and hopes of victory for their desired pugilist, all went short when Camacho bit off a chunk of Kennedy’s skin. This unsporting behavior prompted referee Martin Williams to step in right away. Having said that, this action of Camacho has not only cost him the match, but has also put him in a bad light!

In the wake of the argument, Camacho protested his innocence, even though on second screening, may have been blameworthy of a rush of blood to the head.
