He always talked a lot of B.S. but He backed it up in the ring. I pray everything works out well for the "Macho" and I hope they catch whoever has done this.

That's crazy, good luck to him. Wait, so how is this story related to Ariel Winter and her family? Isn't that the only "news" TMZ reports on now?

It is hard to read PR news and see that the boxer u followed once is in critical condition, much harder is to know all the crazyness in his life and nothing compares to this... Hope that once again he can win this fight!!! Bless Hector "Macho" Camacho .... It is Macho time!!!!
