Seems a bit strange to say he pounded on the kid, but then he was the one to call the popo's before anything happened. He looks nutz though. And, my ex-husband (a boxing Devil Dog) actually had his first defeat when he got in the ring with Camacho about 12 -13 years ago.

Is that not using deadly force? He should go to prison and have to fight his way through every single day. Disgusting excuse for a man.
