Boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho is brain dead
The Puerto Rican boxer known as Hector "Macho" Camacho has been declared brain dead by doctors. Dr. Ernesto Torres said on Wednesday that Camacho was showing irregular and intermittent brain activity.
Camacho is 50-years-old. He was shot several times as he and a friend sat in a Ford Mustang parked outside a bar Tuesday night. Police spokesman Alex Diaz said officers found nine small bags of cocaine in his friend's pocket, and an open 10th bag inside the car.
Camacho has always been considered a troubled man, despite his popularity and skills as a boxer he constantly battled drugs, alcohol and other problems. His career record is 79-6-3. My sincere prayers go out to his family!!!
