Default A little help with Hector Camacho please

Just looking for a little help with Hector Camacho

He is a fighter that for whatever reason I havenít seen much of, the only fight I can really recall watching is his loss to Julio Cesar Chavez.

I have just got hold of a 47 fight career collection and over the next few days I am hoping to get the time to have a look at him.

I was just wondering if you could take the time to recommend his best fights, based on performance and magnitude, for me to start off with.

Thanks in advance.

The Edwin Rosario fight comes to mind ....he was hurt early , but he stayed on his feet to win it on points

I felt he was at his peak in the Jose Luiz Ramirez bout, the Bazooka Limon fight is a good showing too.

Camacho was a guy who was headed to be great and one punch from Rosario made him safety first which affected the rest of his career. A very very good fighter, but not atg.

So by that you would say I'm best to look at anything pre Rosario to see him at his peak.

Thanks

My sons, Frankie and Bobby, were sparring partner for Hector for the Ramirez fight in Vegas, and my son Tony fought Hector for the WBO JW title.....Hector was a very good fighter, but I have to agree that the Rosario fight turned him into a safety first fighter....

absolutely and as noted above, the ramirez fight was likely his peak. his hands in that fight are almost universally regarded as among the fastest ever. he had everything working for him

Nice

I take it that's Tony Baltazar?

I'll add that to my list to watch.

So I'm best aiming at Limon and Rosario and everything in between

Thanks

I'm assuming the fights with Leonard and Duran etc are pretty much a waste of time?

the leonard fight is imo but some value can be gleaned from the duran fights.

Yes, Tony Baltazar is my son. The fight between Tony and Hector is not a good fight to watch. They were at that time the best of friends and did not go all out during the fight.
