Hector “Macho” Camacho is on life support after being shot in the face and neck Tuesday near San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Camacho, 50, went into cardiac arrest Wednesday morning and his condition worsened.

“He’s battling minute to minute,” Dr. Ernesto Torres, director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan, said (via the Associated Press). “This is the most important fight of his life.”

Ismael Leandry, his former manager, told the AP that doctors were waiting for his mother to arrive from the U.S. and decide whether to take the former champion off life support.

There are earlier articles at DU about the shooting, but his condition was not that bad. Things changed dramatically for the worse this morning.

1. Saw it on my sports blurb this morning

 

I liked him when he was at his best.

Hopefully he'll pull through.

But vaya con Dios, if he doesn't.

2. He was my third favorite boxer (after Ali and Tommy Hearns). I liked his "style".
