Representatives from two of boxing’s legendary families plan to mix it up in what is expected to be a battle of not only Family Pride but homelands: Puerto Rico versus Mexico: the 42-year-old, 5’8″ tall Hector “Machito” Camacho III (59-7-1, 33 KOs) will be taking on the 58-year-old, 5’7½” tall boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez (107-6-2, 85 KOs) from Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico.
