Boxer Hector 'Macho' Camacho Critical After Being Shot
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho is reportedly in critical condition after being shot several times in a drive-by shooting in Puerto Rico on Tuesday.
Camacho was a passenger in a vehicle fired on by unknown gunmen in the Bayamon region of the island, just southwest of the capital, San Juan, according to reports in El Nuevo Herald and El Nuevo Dia.
The 50-year old Camacho was reportedly hit in the neck and the face.
According to local media reports, Camacho's driver was killed in Tuesday's shooting.
Camacho has a pending child-abuse case against him in Florida involving one of his sons.
The former lightweight champion is accused of grabbing his son by the neck, slamming him on the ground, and stomping on him at his ex-wife's house in March 2011.
Last week, Camacho was ordered to have no contact with the teen and stay away from his ex-wife.
During his career, the 3 time champ took on several high-profile opponents, including Oscar De La Hoya and Sugar Ray Leonard.
