RIP Hector "Macho" Camacho
Boxer Hector Camacho dies after life support is turned off
Puerto Rican former boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho has died in hospital after being taken off his life support machines, doctors have said.
The three-time world champion was clinically brain dead after being shot in the head in a drive-by shooting near the capital, San Juan, on Tuesday.
The boxer, who was 50, fought some of the great names of boxing during a three-decade career.
They included Oscar de la Hoya, Sugar Ray Leonard and Felix Trinidad.
Camacho was being treated at the Rio Piedras medical centre in San Juan.

1. R.I.P. indeed
I once saw him fight live and he had some of the fastest hands of any man alive. Too bad some punk had to shoot him and his life ended the way it did. Hope they catch the asshole(s) who did this and put him/her/ them away forever.

6. I thought it was his childhood friend sitting in the driver's side who was killed on the spot. There
were supposedly 2 dudes who pulled up and did it. They have at least one suspect in custody. I read about the 10 bags of perico as well. One had been opened.
