Tribute to Macho Camacho

Hector Macho CamachoAt the WBC Convention in Cancun last week tributes were paid to all those who passed away in the past year, including Olympic great Teofilo Stevenson from Cuba. Others to be acknowledged were iconic trainers, Angelo Dundee and Emmanual Steward.

One man who was meant to be attending the convention was Puerto Rican Champion Hector “Macho” Camacho, but unfortunately his life was cut short just a week prior to the convention when he was shot in the head while sitting in his car with friend Adrian Mojica Moreno, who was killed in the attack. Drugs are believed to have been the motive for the attack.

The WBC flew Camacho’s two sons Christian and Justin to Cancun to make a presentation to acknowledge the triple World Champion’s boxing achievements.

Following the presentation made by WBC President Jose Sulaiman Christian Camacho spoke to those in attendance and said “Dad, was more than a superstar, he was a brother to seven siblings, and father to four boys that he loved . He did take us for a roller coaster ride! But dad, being your son is an honour and teh times we spent together I replay in my mind. I am now one step away from being a pro-boxer and I know you will always be in my corner.”
