Sammy Di Pace

For you Las Cruces boxing fans, Las Cruces boxer Sammy Di Pace, who is 6-0 and fights generally at 118, returns to the ring Friday night in El Paso at the Don Haskins Center.

The 19-year-old Di Pace, who was one of the nation's top amateurs, has fought just once this year. He has battled a right shoulder injury but I talked to him Monday night and he said he feels great. He feels he's made some adjustments and been able to work on some things while sitting out. He is expected to fight a four-rounder on Friday night.

The main event features Hector Camacho Jr. vs. Yory Boy Campas in a junior middleweight bout. Tickets range from $25-$100 and can be purchsed at the UTEP Ticket Center or through Ticketmaster.
