This was Mancini's first fight in four years.
Both boxers made over $1.2 million.
There was a sellout crowd of 11,517.
The fight was televised live on closed circuit and pay-per-view television.
Sports Illustrated reported: "Camacho was the 3-to-1 favorite, though hardly with the crowd. The fans hooted him from the moment he stepped into the ring. Camacho answered by dancing in circles, dressed in a red matador hat with earlike protuberances, gold-sequined trunks, overskirt and shoes. He looked like a cross between Midas and Mickey Mouse. Mancini chased him from the start, pressuring him. Camacho peppered away with his right jab, consistently the most effective punch thrown by either man all night. But to the crowd's displeasure, Camacho also ran, backpedaling and sidestepping the pressure. Mancini made what there was of the fight, with hard overhand rights and body shots, but he lacked precision in his punches and never did real damage. Tiring in the later rounds, Camacho stopped running and started tying Mancini up, and that turned what had been a boring fight into an unsightly one. When it was over, each man went to his corner thinking he had won."

Wow! I always felt like this was a robbery and have scored it twice 116-112 Mancini. I got a draw this time through, and it is a horrible fight to watch and score. No robbery and neither guy deserved to win. My promise to myself is to never ever watch this fight again
