He combined flashy tactics, behavior and attire as well as just about any fighter, so the fight game was sad to lose Hector "Macho" Camacho to gunfire in Puerto Rico.
The 50 year-old Spanish Harlem legend set the table for the Naseem Hameds, and Adrien Broners, and other boxers who understood that a shortcut to greater acclaim can be found in the packaging of the pugilist. Camacho always had a thing for fast living, but that didn’t make his passing easier to bear. Sadly, he never reached a point where those instincts mellowed. RIP, Macho.
