This Day in Atlantic City Boxing History – “Sugar” Ray Leonard vs. Hector “Macho” Camacho

Written by Rob Scott

Sugar Ray Leonard’s Last Bout

Atlantic City – On March 1, 1997, “Sugar” Ray Leonard attempted to once again defy the odds and again step into the ring to compete.

Camacho vs. Leonard

Having once returned to the ring after a three year absence to face, and beat, reigning Undisputed Middleweight Champion, “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler, the now forty year old Leonard faced off with Hector “Macho” Camacho for Camacho’s IBC Middleweight championship at Atlantic City’s Convention Center. It was a return, this time after a six year hiatus from ring competition.

“Macho” Camacho Steps up Against the Odds

Leonard was a 7 to 5 favorite to win the fight, but Camacho changed the show from sweet as sugar to Macho Time, knocking Leonard down in the fifth round, then battering him when he got to his feet and the fight commenced. Referee Joe Cortez stopped the assault at the 1:08 mark into the round.  It would be Leonard’s very last match.

This Day in Atlantic City Boxing History – Arturo Gatti vs. Gianluca Branco

Written by Rob Scott
Photographs by Rob Scott

Thunder on the Boardwalk

Atlantic City – On this night, Main Events Inc, once again brought their blood and guts warrior, Arturo “Thunder” Gatti, to Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.

Arturo Gatti vs. Gianluca Branco

Gatti, who had made The Hall his second home, looked to capture his second world title when he faced the tough undefeated Italian, Gianluca Branco, for the vacant WBC World Super lightweight championship.

Good, Good, Great

Gatti used movement and a good jab to outbox his opponent over the first nine rounds, with Branco continuing to come forward and landing some of his own decent shots at times. However, a nice Gatti left hook dropped Branco with 37 seconds left in the tenth round to make a knockout necessary for Branco to pull off an upset.

Branco survived the round and the fight, but the knockout never came. Gatti earned a unanimous twelve round decision and was declared the new WBC Champion.

More Excitement That Night

Also on the card was rising star, Francisco Bojado who faced Emmanuel Clottey in a super lightweight showdown.

Bojado walked away with a ten round unanimous decision, but the highlight was after the fight when Bojado was walking back to his dressing room.

Paulie Malignaggi gave us a glimpse of his gift of gab by goading Bojado into a heated argument and staredown which had to be broken up by Bojado’s trainer, Floyd Mayweather Sr. and surrounding security. Unfortunately, this match-up never materialized.

Also, gaining victories on this night was Kermit Cintron, who scored a fifth round TKO stoppage of  Humberto Aranda, and  James McGirt Jr., Son of former two division world champion,  James “Buddy” McGirt. It was the younger McGirt’s professional debut.

In the audience enjoying the night of fights were former greats, “Gentleman” Gerry Cooney and Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini.
