Former world champ taken off life support days after shooting
Hector "Macho" Camacho was a charismatic showman whose speed and agility earned him three world boxing titles even as his recklessness outside the ring brought him a wealth of trouble.
Camacho, 50, was declared dead on Saturday after being removed from a respirator. He had been declared brain dead on Thursday, two days after he was shot in the head while in a car in San Juan outside a liquor store.
