Notes

The World Boxing Council stripped Bobby Chacon of the super featherweight title when he failed to come to terms for a Don King-promoted title defense against Camacho. King offered him a guarantee of $450,000, but Chacon wanted $1 million.

Camacho was ranked #1, and Limon was ranked #3.

Camacho made $150,000, and Limon got $50,000.
