I also hope he survives. I haven't checked the details re. this incident, but he was walking on the wrong side of the law for a while now. I don't mean trivial stuff.

Again I hope he recovers with no lasting health issues, but dealing with violent criminal elements will unfortunately make it more likely that something like this will happpen.

To me, what happened here is not a boxing story. I have to read the details, but based on the many poor decisions he made in the past (outside of the ring) the only relation this has to boxing is that the victim is a former boxer.
Genius
Get well Macho.

Camacho was another boxer who gave an excellent show whenever he stepped into the ring.

The prognosis continues to be grim, but now the docs say that the bullet in fact was found in his shoulder , but that his C5 & C6 vertebra are toast and that is he does pull through he will probably never walk again. He is at this moment on life support equipment at this time. They don't see any improvement.

I certainly wish this guy the best and hope he can pull out of this , knew him in my youth years ago on the island when he was a fixture in the club scene (damn am I really 50? WTF).

Hope he has a speedy recovery. When I saw this on ESPN I was like "damn, not again". Between the deaths, accidents, shootings and cancelled fights, boxing has taken a huge blow this year. (Obviously the latter isn't as important)

Heard that his Mother is being flown in to make the decision as to whether or not to take him off life support. Just terrible.

I thought he actually passed yesterday, but its been a trend on the net as of late, in regards to people dying before anything is officially announced.

RIP Macho Camacho. Another legend lost this year. So sad
Genius
This is a sad one. I grew up watching Camacho as a kid, the guy was entertaining a heck, could a sell a fight like no other. Some of fastest hands and feet the boxing world has ever seen, rest in peace. So tragic to go out like that..

What a tragic situation. Please RIP Hector. Thanks for the memories.

Those mistresses tend to cross paths one day in life...glad he was in the casket when it happened.

It's not surprising to me to see Camacho turn up dead in this fashion, when my wife and i last went to her hometown in PR we were traveling on the highway and I was on the passenger side and noticed a black Cadillac SUV driving erratically and very fast as it weaved in and out of traffic, when the traffic finally came to a lesser speed then I looked over and noticed that it was Camacho.

I asked my wife to take a look to verify that it was him and she said yes that is him, so I started yelling "Macho Man" "Camacho" but he was simply staring forward at first and then when we started moving faster we were side by side with him and I yelled out "Hector" and he looked over but he had this very glazed over look in his eyes (you could tell he was on some serious drugs) and I told him to slow down and stop driving like an idiot but he just sped up and continued to drive on like a mad man.

I wish I had been thinking about it at the time and I would've taken a pic of him but I didn't think of it at the time. I'm sorry to hear about this, he was a very entertaining character who was graced with great speed and he will be missed.
