Friends honor Hector "Macho" Camacho

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Family, fans and fellow boxers said goodbye to Hector "Macho" Camacho at a memorial and wake for the slain former world champion fighter known for his flamboyance in and out of the ring.

Hundreds of people took pictures and filed past Camacho's open casket, displayed inside a gymnasium decked out for the occasion with black carpet and curtains. The boxer wore white, along with a large gold crucifix and a necklace spelling out his nickname, "Macho," in capital letters.

Camacho was shot in the face while sitting in a parked car a week ago and died when he was taken off of life support on Saturday. He was 50.
