Reviews

"Hector 'Macho' Camacho...survived a difficult childhood to become a world champion before his lifelong struggle with addiction led to his murder at the age of 50. Giudice's take on the complicated fighter will move even those who've never tuned into a boxing match."--Publishers Weekly "The first full-length biography of the legendary boxer...with a penchant for flamboyant outfits and behavior that won him both fans and foes. Giudice writes with sensitivity about Camacho's lifelong struggle with drugs and excessive partying that robbed him of a chance at true greatness...Boxing fans who remember the ascendant days of lighter-weight fighters such as Roberto Duran, Sugar Ray Leonard, Julio Cesar Chavez, and Oscar De La Hoya will want to read."--Library Journal "In yet another skillful excavation of a dazzling Latino champion, Christian Giudice--the author of acclaimed biographies of Roberto Duran, Alexis Arguello and Wilfredo Gomez--follows Hector 'Macho' Camacho from his embattled childhood in Spanish Harlem, to the heights of his electrifying yet too-brief stardom and onto his abject end by hail of gunfire in a carful of cocaine. It is a compelling journey."--Mark Kram Jr., author of Smokin' Joe: The Life of Joe Frazier "The bullets that eventually found Hector Camacho had shadowed him throughout his tempestuous life. In this penetrating biography, Christian Giudice reveals the showman, the artist, the clown and the assassin--the erratic family man and the pride of Spanish Harlem. The Macho Man was a blazing comet streaking across the sky, bringing brilliance and destruction, then disappearing all too soon."--Mike Stanton, author of Unbeaten: Rocky Marciano's Fight for Perfection in a Crooked World "All of boxing's dark romance is here. The raw material of Hector Camacho's wild, sad yet sometimes stellar life expertly distilled and movingly told."--Jon Hotten, author of The Years of the Locust: A True Story of Murder, Money and Mayhem in the Last Age of Boxing
