Hector 'Macho' Camacho shot

Former world boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho was shot in the face as he sat in a car outside the Puerto Rican capital Tuesday, and doctors said he was in serious condition but expected to survive.

Another man in the car, whose relationship to the 50-year-old Camacho wasn't immediately known, died in the attack in which at least one gunman opened fire on their vehicle in the city of Bayamon, according to a statement from police.

Camacho was rushed to Centro Medico, the trauma center in San Juan, where he was in critical but stable condition, Dr. Ernesto Torres, the hospital director, told reporters.

The bullet apparently struck him in the jaw but exited his head and lodged in his right shoulder and fractured two vertebrae, Torres said. The doctor said the boxer, who was trailed by drug and alcohol problems during a career that included some high-profile bouts, could be paralyzed from the shooting.

"Camacho's condition is extremely delicate," he told Telenoticias. "His physical condition will help him but we will see."

No arrests have been made in the shooting, police said.

Camacho representative Steve Tannenbaum said he was told by friends at the hospital that the boxer would make it.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Hector "Macho" Camacho was clinging to life Wednesday after being shot in the face while in a car, with doctors and his family expected to decide whether to remove the former boxing champion from life support.

Doctors initially had said the 50-year-old Camacho was in critical but stable condition and expected to survive after he was shot Tuesday night in his hometown of Bayamon. His condition worsened overnight, however, and his heart stopped at one point, said Dr. Ernesto Torres, director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan.

"The situation with Macho is very delicate," Torres told reporters during a media briefing on Wednesday. "The prognosis is not good."

He said the hospital's team of doctors were trying to determine the boxer's level of brain activity.

"We just have to wait to see if Macho gets better. It's a hard battle," friend and former manager Ismael Leandry told The Associated Press.

Torres said Camacho's mother, Maria Matias, spent about 20 minutes with her son, one of the most dynamic boxing personalities of his era, and was expected to return for a second visit on Wednesday night.

She is expected to decide whether Camacho should be taken off life support based on the results of further tests due Wednesday. Torres said encephalographic tests would determine whether Camacho is brain dead. Torres said Camacho's son, Hector Camacho Jr., is due to arrive in Puerto Rico on Wednesday night.

Hector 'Macho' Camacho brain dead

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Famed Puerto Rican boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho is clinically brain dead, doctors said Thursday, though they said family members were disagreeing on whether to take him off life support.

Dr. Ernesto Torres said doctors have finished performing all medical tests on Camacho, who was shot in the face Tuesday night.

"We have done everything we could," said Torres, who is the director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan. "We have to tell the people of Puerto Rico and the entire world that Macho Camacho has died, he is brain dead."

This is really sad. When I started watching boxing as a young teenager, Camacho was my first favorite boxer. All my friends hated him, but I loved his flashy showmanship. I watched him fight every chance I got. "It's MACHO time!!!"

While I was the sports editor of the school paper at YSU, I got an internship at The Vindicator. Halfway through my internship, I was offered a full-time job on the copy desk. I took it. During my first year at the paper, I was asked if I wanted to cover a fight in West Virginia. A local boxer, Ken Sigurani, was fighting Hector "Macho" Camacho. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity. I was still a rookie journalist, and it was awesome going to the press conference and fight and getting to cover one of my childhood heroes. Truly a memorable experience. After the press conference, I got to talk privately with Camacho for a few minutes. I was expecting the flamboyant personality you saw in front of the cameras, the same personality I grew up seeing and had just witnessed during the press conference. But when the cameras were off, he was a different person. He was a cool guy. I also have a great story involving me and the guy Camacho fought, Ken Sigurani. But I'll save that story for another day. On this Thanksgiving Day, I'm thankful that I got to meet one of my childhood heroes, Hector Camacho.

I'm reading an article and it says that they will not unplugg him
because his aunt when she went to the hospital to see him
gave him a kiss on his right cheek and she said something to him
and he moved his right leg and then she kissed him on his left chek
and he moved his left leg
So they have decided that as long as he responds on his body is responding
They'll keep him hooked up to all the machines

(Article is on Univision.com I'm translating it as I read it so I hope it kinda makes sense)

I hate this happened...I watched many of his fights and what a loss of a great talent. I am ready for boxing to make a come back. MMA has taken over and it's getting old to watch.

PostSubject: Mother: Family will take Camacho off life support    UPDATE!: Hector 'Macho' Camacho shot EmptyFri Nov 23, 2012 10:36 pm

Boxer Hector 'Macho' Camacho has been on life support since he was shot Tuesday.




SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The mother of Hector 'Macho' Camacho plans to have the former championship boxer taken off life support Saturday, after three more of his sons arrive in Puerto Rico to be with him.

Maria Matias said Friday night she made the decision to have doctors remove him from life support. The boxer's oldest son says he opposes the decision.

Matias says three more of the boxer's sons will arrive in Puerto Rico and will get to see him for the last time on Saturday. She says her son "died three days ago and he's only alive now because of a machine."

Doctors in San Juan have said Camacho is clinically brain dead from a shooting earlier this week in his hometown of Bayamon.

Camacho was shot Tuesday night as he sat in a car with a friend, 49-year-old Adrian Mojica Moreno, who was killed in the attack. Police spokesman Alex Diaz said officers found nine small bags of cocaine in the friend's pocket, and a 10th bag open inside the car.

Police have made no arrests and continue to interview potential witnesses. Capt. Rafael Rosa told reporters Friday that they are tracking down several leads, but added that very few witnesses are cooperating. He declined to say whether police have identified any suspects.

Camacho's sisters have said they would like to fly Camacho's body to New York and bury him there. Camacho grew up mostly in Harlem, earning the nickname the "Harlem Heckler."






He won super lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight world titles in the 1980s and fought high-profile bouts against Felix Trinidad, Julio Cesar Chavez and Sugar Ray Leonard. Camacho knocked out Leonard in 1997, ending the former champ's final comeback attempt. Camacho had a career record of 79-6-3.

Camacho also battled drug, alcohol and other problems throughout his life. He was sentenced in 2007 to seven years in prison on burglary charges, but a judge eventually suspended all but one year of the sentence and gave Camacho probation. He wound up serving two weeks in jail, though, after violating that probation. A wife also filed domestic abuse complaints against him twice before their divorce.
