1994-07-15 Michael Carbajal w pts 12 Josue Camacho, American West Arena, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - WBO. Referee: Toby Gibson. Scorecards: 119-108, 119-108, 119-110. In a fast-paced contest, Carbajal (108) came back after his loss to Humberto Gonzalez to outbox Camacho (106½) and pick up the WBO title. Although the challenger was the one forcing the fight, Camacho was rarely in any kind of trouble, often bouncing out of danger to land right-hand counters, but in showing so little aggression it was no surprise that the title changed hands.

Carbajal relinquished the WBO version of the title in October after deciding to have a crack at Gonzalez’s WBC/IBF championship belts.
