Boxing mourns as life support for Hector Camacho Sr. is withdrawn
Former world champion fighter Hector ‘Macho’ Camacho has died after life support that was keeping the brain dead Puerto Rican legend alive was removed by his family.
The 50-year-old was shot in the face in a case of mistaken identity earlier in the week.
His initial diagnosis was that Camacho was critical but stable in hospital and would pull through.
Camacho quickly deteriorated after suffering a cardiac arrest and was pronounced ‘clinically dead’ on Thursday night.
Doctors stated that nothing more could be done for the stricken boxer.
‘Macho’ was shot in the jaw in a car as a fellow passenger was also murdered.
