Hector Camacho memorial held in Puerto Rico

The 50-year-old sportsman died on Saturday (24Nov12) when members of his family opted to take him off life support, four days after he was critically injured in a drive-by shooting in his hometown of Bayamon.

Mourners gathered for a special mass on Monday, while a public viewing of his open casket was held at a recreation centre in Santurce on Tuesday (27Nov12), attracting hundreds of fans.

Camacho was dressed in a white suit with a large gold crucifix and his trademark gold ‘Macho’ necklace for the viewing.
