The fact is that good people get caught up in bad things through bad choices or economic situations.. Plenty of good people have died as a result of Drugs and Crime but we see a major double standard.. You can be a Hollywood star like Charlie Sheen, get coked up week after week arrested for drugs and destroying private property and nothing happens to you but if it’s a person of color or a minority you get screwed…

It was just a good-natured felony Camacho did…don’t fret about it. And his child-abuse case? The one where the complaint reads that he strangled his son by the neck holding him over his head, and then slammed him to the ground and stomped on him? It was a jolly good time for all and no harm was done. I’m not a judge and jury, they already convicted Camacho. I’m a realist who knows that a championship belt or two is the only line between a forgotten miscreant and Camacho.

I am a steroid abusing elderly mental case who likes to play judge n jury . Corporate thieves , warmongers etc are fine but god forbid any working class stiff takes drugs. When are you going to call for mandatory drug testing for white collar professionals, politicians etc Old Yank and explain why the laws regarding crack cocaine( used by the poor ) are so much more punative than the laws regarding powder cociane ( loved by the rich ) .

When Johnny Tapia died also a victim of Drugs and going down the Wrong path no one here was disrespecting his Death and making fun of it.. and we sure as hell weren’t trying to use our injured Vets to make a point over why we should care less over the death of a Great Boxer who gave all of us Boxing Fans great Boxing Events… because he died as a result of Drug/Gun Violence.. Go buy yourself some Class.. or maybe Join the Miliatray and help out your Comrades.. I’m sure the Politicians to started these Senseless wars would appreciate it..

Who Shot JR – Stop using our injured Vets in your Vile Disrespectful Comments against a fallen Great Boxer… If you are so concerned about our returning Vets injured in two Sensless wars you should be out there fighting the system that put our Kids in harms way over politics… instead of wasting your time on these boards with your Classless Dribble.. A great Boxer was killed in a criminal act of Violence and like expected your kind take the opportunity to Spew your Vile and then you use our injured Vets in your idiotic
Classeless posts… You’re not fooling anyone and we all know the only group who would post such ugly sht about a Fallen Puerto Rican.. luckily plenty of your kind have shown some class and dignity.. in the end God and Karma will take care of your kind…

I should have said, “JR, I share your sentiments.”

I share your sentiments.

You boys are too sweet. Thanks so much for the etiquette lesson on mourning. But I think I already read the article in my wife’s latest issue of PMS Monthly. They suggested that when a misfit felon, drug-dealer/user, wife-beater and child abuser dies from his own stupidity that the appropriate time for mourning before mentioning he was a misfit is to wait until some genius writes an article on miscreant former fighters who perish in the squalor of their own making. I apologize for jumping the etiquette queue and making a few awkwardly timed comments because I was not sure a follow-up article would be out after the appropriate mourning period. For those wringing their hands in stressful disbelief over the lack of decency in those not allowing for a fantasy mourning story to be told without interruption, I suggest you take a few Midol and recognize that when you wake, the world will be largely unchanged tomorrow.

One More Round

@ Who shot JR… So your a detective now huh Columbo ? You know what happend that night ? All you are is a puppet of the media and repeat everything they say ! I bet you never met the man in your life but yet you have it all figured out on what kind of person he was… (and yes I did know him personally) Get some facts before you make comments other wise you look stupid like you do now.

Who Shot J.R.?

People are coming back from Afganistan with no legs and people are down over some drug addict ex-boxer that got paid extremely well during his career getting offed during a drug deal. Get some perspective. He was a drug dealer that probably sold to kids.

Love him or hate him it was always exciting to see what he would do next. The Hamed’s and Paez’s of the sport knew if you wanted to get attention do it Macho Man style. He wasn’t just a show or circus act Camacho when he wanted to could really box and was blessed with a God given talent not to mention how underrated his toughness and chin were. Lord knows how much greater he could have been. We all know that what he accomplished in the ring will be enough to see him in the HOF. I was one of those Ricans that routed against him when he fought Chavez or Tito but when I look back that’s what made him great. Hero or villain he had you watching him. Boxing , Puerto Rico and his fans were lucky to have him in the sport. RIP champ. Condolences and prayers with his family.

Fight Aficionado

Lots of great memories of Camacho. When he fought Oscar in 97 my buddy showed up at the sportsbar, packed with Oscar fans, wearing that Squggy hair curl and talking shiat the whole time. Way past his prime Camacho manhandling Ray Leonard like a puncher when everyone expected him to run. Even the Haugen loss was memorable. RIP champ.

Thank you Hector , you made boxing exciting you made it fun, you never ducked anyone and always gave 100% for the fans, Rest in peace my brothers, prays going up for his family May God comfort them at this time -PEACE

I agree with your general sentiment but you shouldn’t wish this sort of thing upon any boxer.

Posted November 25, 2012 11:59 am 


rest in peace Hector. whoever did this has immortalized Camacho.

Posted November 25, 2012 9:19 am 


RIP Macho man. I’ll never forget his words “Ray Leonard ain’t coming back on my watch” and then he became the first and only man to stop the Sugar man. What a showman, hated him for a long time, but like many of the greats showed how tough he was later in his career. Another big loss for the boxing community.

I met Camacho and what a colorful person he is. I had a bad day and he made me feel good. I will always remember that. I say why does this have to happen to him why not Bernard Hopkins who I met also who was a complete utter snobish jerk ! ICamacho had problems no doubt but he was a good guy.

Posted November 24, 2012 10:41 pm 


Gotta love the Macho Man he was colorful to say the least… RIP Hector…!

Posted November 24, 2012 9:38 pm 


Sad to hear, but Macho had to be the biggest loudmouth in boxing back in the 90s. I hate to think that additude led to his death, but it probably did. Still, it’s a shame. His fights with Haugen and Pazienza were fun to watch.

thoughts are with Hectors family R.I.P CHAMP …..

Posted November 24, 2012 8:01 pm 


Fantastic fighter and with lots of heart ,,I never thought he would beat Jose Luis Ramirez ,the way he did ,,He show true grit in his losses against Chavez and De La Hoya and Trinida ,,I have been upset since this tragedy happen ,,there are many cruel people in this world ,,You will always be remember as one of the greats my friend …

Hector should have stayed at light weight and made fights come to him. Very bad management on their part moving him up just for money. What seems to slip people’s mind is that hector could punch very well. He hurt his left early on but when he wanted he could get you outta there.this guy was up their with the greats in terms if his foot work,it was truly amazing.yoy gave me hours of enjoyment hector peace be with you. Mocho time !!!!

RIP Macho Camacho. Your legacy is forever and so are the memories you gave the boxing world and to the people who loved you. See you in heaven our Great Champ.

R.I.P Champ! The Macho man was definitely the Floyd Jr of his time. He was the guy you loved to hate! But he had great skill in the ring and held his own with some truly great fighters. He was a guy though who would fight anyone. he didnt duck Chavez, or greats like Leonard. Sad to see he met his end in this way.

R.I.P. Champ.. Sad day in boxing. I can remember me and my old man watching him dad did not like the show boating type of attitude he had and that it was bad for boxing… I liked it and told my dad that it made the boxing match fun.(Chavez Sr. vs Macho Camacho) was our favorite…anyway, that’s neither here nor there but oh well… Them Macho Man has officially hung up his gloves.. again R.I.P.

Manny now Camacho. It’s been a rough few weeks for boxing.

Posted November 24, 2012 3:57 pm 


A great defensive fighter. Great footwork. Hard to hit. A distance fighter. A joy to watch. Hector will be missed.

Posted November 24, 2012 3:55 pm 


RIP.. Wonderfull fighter

Posted November 24, 2012 3:48 pm 


Camacho has to be rated up there for his chin, resilience and defence. Was he ever stopped? He went in against some heavy hitters

Posted November 24, 2012 3:46 pm 


yea it sucks but i’m not in total shock, they shot up his car some time last year and he was always getting himself in trouble. some of the decisions he made.

Posted November 24, 2012 3:37 pm 


It’s a shame he made some of the decisions he made.

Posted November 24, 2012 3:34 pm 


RIP champ, your legacy lives on with all Puerto Rican fans and the boxing community. Thank you for the memories.
