I think an 1986 fight between Hector and Julio would have been just about right in terms of timing. Chavez should have made the move up and challenged Hector at 135 instead of fighting weight drained and taking on the likes of Laporte and Lockridge at 130. It's regrettable the fight never got made until as late as it did. Having said that, if Camacho was more disciplined and kept the weight off instead of division jumping just about every year in the mid 80's the fight probably would have been made sooner rather than later.

Good to hear about the youtube fights btw, look forward to seeing some of your prime Camacho stuff.
