There are two ways to look at this. One is that we lost a boxing legend. But I know the reason he was shot and if you knew, then your actually agree with David on this thread.

I know him very well and he got shot for a reson , this guy was so ****y and he tough he could take anyone or anything....not saying he deservs it , but I am sure drugs lay part of this. I am boricua and i know how he was several yrs ago I saw him before a fight and all he was doing was drinking , partying it up and of course coke like crazy and not diet coke... hope he survive but the best thing if he does get out of town...

I am from Boston Mass of Irish heritage and I know alot of Puerto Rican people and they are the hispanics of this country . My dad was a boxing trainer in a gym in south Boston and he loved Hector Camacho. My heart and prayers go to him and his family . Long live The Puerto Rican Heritage.
