Raised in 1970s Spanish Harlem, Hector Camacho lived a life as fast as his fists flew in the ring. Handsome, flamboyant, and outspoken, Camacho electrified the boxing scene of the 1980s and, shouting his mantra "Macho Time!", beat some of the greatest fighters of his generation. His fast-lane life caught up with him eventually—and tragically—when he was shot dead outside a nightclub in Puerto Rico at the age of fifty. Macho Time is written by Christian Giudice, author of Hands of Stone, the definitive biography of Roberto Duran, which was made into the motion picture of the same name starring Robert De Niro. Macho Time will be the first biography of Hector Camacho Sr., who lived a life as fast as his fists flew in the ring. Camacho's son, Hector Camacho Jr., also a professional boxer, has worked closely with author Christian Giudice to give him unprecedented access and insight into this complex man, who was tragically murdered in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2012.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Giudice’s take on the complicated fighter will move even those who’ve never tuned into a boxing match.” Publishers Weekly
“Giudice does a solid job of reporting…Entertaining and as thorough a biography as we’re likely to see of this man-child who could have been a great fighter but became a cautionary tale instead.” Boxing News
“Takes the reader along Camacho’s bumpy, exhilarating, but ultimately tragic ride…Giudice speaks candidly about the boxer and the man in and out of the ring, via exclusive interviews with Sugar Ray Leonard, Freddie Roach, and Héctor Camacho Jr. Héctor Camacho’s story and persona is as magnetic in death as it was in life.” The Sportsman magazine
“Timothy Andrés Pabon narrates with clear diction and beautiful pronunciation of Spanish names, which are important to the story. He imparts the right amount of emotion and helps paint a picture of a champ who remains defined by his selfish lifestyle. The narration puts the listener in the ring as Pabon represents the boxer and those around him with just the right touch…Boxing fans will like this dive into Camacho’s life.” AudioFile
