ROY JONES ON CAMACHO:

Upon hearing the news of the death of three-division world champion Hector Camacho, future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr. expressed his condolences to the family, friends, and fans of the talented and entertaining boxer. "I am shocked and deeply saddened by the news of Macho's passing. One of boxing's finest tragically lost his fight for life. My thoughts and prayers are with Hector Camacho Jr. as well as all of his family and friends. It is truly one of boxing's darkest hours," he commented.

Though their paths never crossed inside the ring, both Jones and Camacho shared a knack for showmanship and the ability to entertain fans with their theatrics. In fact, some say Jones even adopted certain elements of Camacho's flamboyant style. Even to this day, fans still debate a fantasy matchup between the two charismatic fighters, a testament to the staying power of Camacho's influence on the sport. Indeed, boxing has lost another iconic figure. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Hector Camacho.
