VIDEO Highlights of Hector Camacho winning his first World Title
It was sad to hear of the recent shooting of legendary boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho. He was shot while he and a friend sat in a car parked outside a bar on Tuesday night. Hector was in his birthplace, Bayamon, Puerto Rico when the shooting occurred.
Police authorities said the famed boxer was shot in the face and neck. His friend Alex Diaz also in the car with him, allegedly had nine small bags of cocaine in his pocket and a 10th bag was found laying open inside the car. Another friend Mojica Moreno, was instantly killed in the attack. The man in another car also died in the shootout.
Hector was rushed to Centro Medico Trauma Center in San Juan, where he was pronounced brain-dead. His family originally thought he would survive. However, they later found they would have to make the tough decision of whether to keep him on life support. Recent news reports say them will remove it today.
While the Puerto Rican boxer is loved in his country and around the world, he unfortunately has had issues with law enforcement in the past. The attack may have something to do with his troubles, but it’s still tragic for someone with so much talent, to end their life so horribly.
What an extremely sad day for his family…especially having to make this decision on Thanksgiving day. The holiday will never be the same for them. R.I.P. Hector “Macho” Camacho.
