SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Family, fans and fellow boxers said goodbye Tuesday to Hector "Macho" Camacho at a memorial and wake. Hundreds of people filed past Camacho's open casket, displayed inside a gymnasium decked out for the occasion with black carpet and curtains. Photos by Juan Martinez/GFR Media

Camacho was shot Nov. 20 while sitting in a parked car with a friend outside a bar in Bayamon, his hometown. The friend died at the scene and the boxer three days later after doctors removed him from life support. Police have said they have suspects but have not yet arrested anyone for the shooting.

Camacho, who was 50 when he died, left Puerto Rico as a child and moved to New York. He went on to win super lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight world titles in the 1980s and fought high-profile bouts against Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya, Julio Cesar Chavez and Sugar Ray Leonard.

A wasted Life dealing drugs

Camacho could have done so much for the youth of Puerto Rico and been a role model but Hector decided crime and prison and drugs was the best way to go in life. How many innocent kids were saved by taking the cocaine dealing Camacho off the streets? The kids of Puerto Rico won one.
