The list of Nebraska boxers who have won multiple bouts at the National Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions isn't a very long one. Jose Camacho's name is on it, and he's ready to add to his total in May.

Camacho, who fights out of Omaha's B&B Boxing Academy, clinched his third consecutive berth to nationals with a sensational performance Saturday. The southpaw recorded a third-round stoppage against two-time national qualifier Rouj Talat of Lincoln in the 132-pound title match at Ralston Arena.

His win was in one of four championship fights on a 19-bout card at the Midwest Golden Gloves, the regional tournament that determines the Omaha team that will compete in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Camacho, a national quarterfinalist two years ago, blistered Talat with straight left hands, right jabs and hooks. His commitment to work to the body brought about three standing-eight counts before the end.

"I worked hard for it. I'm ready to step it up," Camacho, named boxer of the year, said. "The experience of those two years have helped me out. I know I have to work way harder. I want to win them this year."

Reigning women's national champion Brittany Parker, also with B&B, earned the right to defend her title with a decision win over Karen York of Rapid City, South Dakota. The Omaha product claimed the 178-plus crown at the national tournament last year in this arena without even having to fight for it.

She did, however, beat nationally-ranked Felicia Thomas from Texas at the U.S. National Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah, in December to earn the No. 2 spot in the rankings. Parker will have a chance to fight for the top position against No. 1 Danielle Perkins, also of Texas, in June. With a victory in that bout, she would represent the United States at the Elite Women's World Championships in Russia.

"This is like a checking point to see what I need to work on, what I need to do," she said. "The No. 1 boxer, she's pretty tough. I wanted to come out with the win, but mostly see what I need to work on."

Cody Kerr of South Dakota and Shahab Salahaldan of Lincoln claimed the other open championships.

Cadet Sonny Martin of Kearney, who scored a first-round knockout, was named most promising boxer.
