In his peak years, Camacho would have been all over an opponent like Mayweather, and would have turned him upside-down and inside-out. To this day, is only rival for speed and footwork combined I'd say, was Roy Jones. As for Cotto, there is no comparison in skill, heart, durability. Camacho was a star, about whom I've written several times over the years.

I first heard of him when he put together a string of about 4-5 successive KOs against top opposition. He was described as a blazing comet-in a strictly political newspaper which never reported on boxing. I remember I was living in the Middle-East and I think he was the 130 lb. champ.
