On November 24, we received word that “Mo” Macias – older brother of former NABF President Sam Macias – passed away after a lengthy illness. After retiring from boxing, Mo was a well known and respected trainer and cornerman in Las Vegas for many years. Our condolences and prayers go to the Macias family at this time.
On the same day, colorful former boxing champion Hector “Macho” Camacho died in Puerto Rico from injuries incurred as the result of a shooting. Hector, a former NABF champion in the ’80s, was one of the best known and recognizable boxers in his day – and even until today, every one knew the “Macho Man” when they saw him.
