A former boxing champ will soon head to court to face felony child abuse charges.
The trial of Hector "Macho" Camacho will start next Monday in Orange County.
Camacho is accused of picking up his teenage son by his neck, slamming him to the ground and stomping on him. It happened in March 2011 at Camacho's ex-wife's Orange County home.
The state attorney's office issued a warrant for the former champ in November of last year. Camacho turned himself in to Orange County deputies in April after his attorney said he found out that he was a wanted man.
Camacho won several world titles in the 1980's, fighting against boxing legends Oscar De La Hoya, Julia Cesar Chavez, Felix Trinidad and Sugar Ray Leonard.
The Puerto Rican-born boxer is a two-time World Boxing Organization light welterweight champion. He last held the title in 1992.
Camacho is also a former World Boxing Council lightweight champion and super featherweight champion, having held each title once during the 1980s. His last fight in the ring was in 2009.
