Hector "Macho" Camacho is a 4-time champion in 3 different divisions. Many experts consider him one of the fastest boxers ever as well as one of the most skilled of his time. Yet he has never achieved his full potential for some reason. Although he did beat many outstanding fighters, he has lost to the best guys he faced. But, unlike guys like Chavez, DLH or Trinidad, he has never been stopped. He has also only been knocked down a couple times in his career. He had a quite outstanding amateur career, finishing at 96-4 and was a five time Golden Gloves champion. He has won the WBC SFW, WBC LW and WBO LWW (twice) world titles.

He was past his prime against Tito and over the hill gainst DLH. Leonard and Duran were WAY over the hill when he beat them. Also, I'd demote Edwards and Davis Jr for sure.

Why Edwards?? On second thought, I won't even bother.

Why Edwards?? He beat some big names.

A- names, not A names. He also has losses to A- and B fighters while still prime.

This is not relevant, I don't want that stuff here. Take it to the chatroom. It doesn't matter if YOU think Duran should have won, it's like the chicken and the egg.

If I could find that fight I'd add it to the scoring league...

I edited the notable losses and detraction points, improving his score.

I've decided Pazienza and Haugen should be rated on the same level. Paz won the trilogy after all. Both at A- I'd say.
