Against The Ropes

(Maximum Sports Channels – Linda Morgan) Well, it looks like yet another tragedy beset the world of boxing. Former boxer, Hector “Macho” Camacho, the Puerto Rican boxer best known for his skill in the ring, as well as a messy personal life featuring many run-ins with the police. He was declared dead on Saturday, four days after being shot in the face. He was 50. Camacho was shot while sitting in a parked car outside a bar Tuesday with a friend in the city of Bayamon, he was declared dead at the Centro Medico Trauma Center in San Juan. The friend, 49-year-old Adrian Mojica Moreno, died at the scene of the shooting. Police said Mojica had nine small bags of cocaine in his pocket and a 10th bag was found open in the car.

Originally from Bayamon, just outside San Juan, Camacho fought professionally for three decades, from his debut against David Brown at New York’s Felt Forum in 1980, and finally to an equally forgettable bout against Sal Duran in Kissimmee, FL., in 2010. Family, fans and fellow boxers said goodbye Tuesday to Hector “Macho” Camacho at a memorial and wake for the slain former world champion fighter known for his flamboyance in and out of the ring. Hundreds of people took pictures and filed past Camacho’s open casket, displayed inside a gymnasium decked out for the occasion with black carpet and curtains. The boxer wore white, along with a large gold crucifix and a necklace spelling out his nickname, “Macho,” in capital letters.

If you’re looking for that special gift for the boxing fan in your life, or you just want some really cool stuff you might want to head on over to Julienslive.com where most of Evander Holyfield’s belongings are being auctioned off. Sad though it may be to witness a man who has made millions of dollars have to liquidate his entire life’s possessions, there are a lot of amazing items available for the clever bidder.
