 Family, fans and fellow boxers say goodbye to boxing legend Hector "Macho" Camacho in Puerto Rico today. 

True to "Macho" Camacho style, this was the scene at the wake for Camacho where hundreds of people filed past his open casket including US Soldiers and fellow boxers.

The boxer was shot november 20th while sitting in a parked car with a friend outside a bar.
His friend died at the scene. Camacho died three days later after being taken off life support.

Camacho, who was 50 when he died, left Puerto Rico as a child and moved to New York where he went on to win numerous world titles throughout the 1980's and was known for his Flamboyant style.
