Hector Camacho Jr. to fight former Contender star Freddy Curiel

“The CallOut” reality television series kicks-off this Sunday at the West Warwick Civic Center in Warwick, Rhode Island, featuring 10 boxing exhibition matches, headlined by a rematch between Hector “Macho” Camacho, Jr., and “Furious” Freddy Curiel, to resolve disputes through the power of boxing.

The 10 exhibition matches on the “Punching for Peace” card will be taped live and incorporated into episodes for “The CallOut” reality TV series, in addition to footage and interviews of the participants leading up to this Sunday’s matches.

Camacho (59-7-1, 33 KOs) defeated Curiel (19-8-2, 8 KOs), who starred in the second season of The Contender television reality series, by way of a 10-round unanimous decision 24 years ago at Trump Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. In an effort to settle their score, Curiel issued a challenge to Camcho, who quickly accepted. Camacho vs. Curiel is the six-round (90-second rounds) main event.

The innovative boxing-based series is the brainchild of Jarrod Tillinghast, a former professional boxer and owner of Legendary Boxing gym in North Providence.

“I’m promoting ‘The CallOut’ because I’ve witnessed the division in our world and I believe it’s time to bring people together through the power of boxing,” said Tillinghast, ‘The CallOut’ CEO and founder. “Through this show, my hope is to unite the biggest names in boxing and celebrities to get people’s attention, which will definitely peak interest in showing the world that, even in the most divisive times, we can come together to resolve disputes and inspire positive change. ‘The CallOut’ is more than just a reality boxing series; it’s a movement towards unity and understanding.”

“The CallOut” powerhouse team combines a unique blend of boxing legends, celebrities ,and industry experts.
