Hector "Macho Camacho" Dies at 50!
Early Saturday, Hector was removed from life support and passed away shortly after. For those of you who may not be aware, Hector "Macho Camacho" was known best throughout the boxing community for puttin' hands on his opponent in the ring.Camacho's professional boxing career lasted 28 years, from 1982 to 2010, and included some of the biggest fights in recent memory. Bouts with Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La and Sugar Ray Leonard catapulted Camacho into super stardom.
In his career, Camacho posted a record of 79-6-3. He was never the best fighter on the planet, but his unique style and ability to connect with an audience made him one of the largest draws in the sport when he was at his peak.
Luis , Camacho's cousin, had this to say about his loving cousin,
"My cousin showed everybody love. When he came around, when he came across, he inspired. He had a great personality. I know that it devastated a lot of people out here because he is a that made it. He was a great boxer. He had great personality. He showed everybody love. He was never cocky."
