    **RIP*Boxing champ Hector Comacho brain dead after ambush shooting*UPDATED RIP*

    So sad.

    Former world boxing champion Hector 'Macho' Camacho has been declared brain dead today after being shot in his native Puerto Rico, with his family facing the agonizing decision of taking him off life support as his state worsened.
    Doctors had earlier said Camacho would survive after he was shot in the face while sitting in a car on Tuesday night in his hometown of Bayamon.
    However his condition deteriorated overnight and his heart stopped at one point, said Dr Ernesto Torres, director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan.

    I loved to watch him fight. I never liked the big boxers, too much hugging on each other. Hector, Ray (Boom Boom) Mancini & Sugar Ray Leonard were a few of my favorites to watch.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    This might should go in the bizarre news?!

    The fight reportedly began when Cynthia Castillo, the alleged girlfriend at the time of his death, kissed Camacho on the mouth during the wake, causing Gloria Fernandez, his alleged girlfriend of the past 25 years to retaliate, the report claims.
    EWWWW!!!
