Hector Camacho, 47, and Yory Boy Campas fought an eight-round draw Saturday night at the Universal Center in Orlando, Florida. The fight was made available to the perverse of mind through an independent PPV offering from its main promoter Real Fighting Championships (“RFC”).

I see the world in black and white.  My world has heroes and villains. The heroes in my world are men of principle who do their jobs well and who use their own independent judgment to make informed decisions.  New Jersey Athletic Control Board commissioner Aaron Davis is one of those men.  Davis watched Camacho spar earlier this week, then scuttled the match-up with Campas.

“Hector was a legendary fighter who will also go down as one of the most flamboyant fighters in the sport. It is with the utmost respect for him that I have declined to approve the fight,” New Jersey Athletic Control Board commissioner Aaron Davis told the Press of Atlantic City.

My world also has villains.  If you mention the name “Jason” to just about anyone, an evil, hockey-mask wearing monster comes to mind.  That scabrous image should be replaced by Jason Freyre, who promoted the match through his company Real Fighting Championships (“RFC”).  RFC’s website describes its business as promoting soley “no holds barred” MMA fights where “every thing goes except, eye gouging, kicking to the head, and biting.”

One of the show’s original promoters, Diane Lee Fischer, of Dee Lee Promotions, quickly hooked up with RFC after Davis declined to sanction the bout.  “If this fight hadn’t happened, we would have lost millions of dollars,” said Freyre, president of RFC.

Aaron Davis knows fighters.  His job is to license boxers while at the same time assuring the public of competitive match-ups.

Aaron Davis is a hero.  Jason Freyre and Diane Lee Fischer are villans.  It is as simple as that.

Hector Camacho and Yory Boy Campas are fighters.  And fighters rarely know when to stop.
