Default Re: Larry Merchant on Hector Camacho......

Camcho was a top dog but he never did have that x factor. That extra something that brought out those special nights but I believe he did a good job nevertheless.
We're not far from being in the same boat. I'd rate him on a similar level to Starling to be honest with the proviso Camacho had the talent to maybe go a bit further.
