The 2016 International Boxing Hall of Fame (IBHOF) class has been announced, and it’s as top notch as it gets in the sweet science.


Heading up the list is firstly the late, great, Puerto Rican warrior Hector ‘Macho’ Camacho. Camacho captured recognized world titles (one of the four big governing bodies’ belts) in three different weight divisions, super-featherweight, lightweight and junior welterweight.

He is widely regarded as one of Puerto Rico’s finest warriors with a professional boxing record of 79-6-3 (38KO).

In November 2015 at 50 years of age his life came to a tragic ending, when he was critically wounded in a shooting in his native Puerto Rico.
