's body is currently on display at a public viewing in Puerto Rico -- three days after the boxing legend's death.

The public viewing is being held at Centro de Recreacion in Santurce. A private mass was held yesterday for family and friends.

According to his rep, Hector's body will be flown to New York City for a private funeral and burial at his mother's request. It's unclear when the private funeral will be held.

As we reported, Camacho passed away on Saturday from injuries he sustained during a drive-by shooting last week.

That is not the bullet hole on his head that's his hair that he use to use remember the curl in the front. From what i understand in all the newspapers he was shot through the jaw and went through to his shoulder or neck and then another bullet in his chest. I might be wrong but that's what i see in the news paper. As for the complaints about the picture well yeah maybe they should have a link for those who want to see it . Some people can't stomach stuff like this or just don't find it appropriate. Maybe just maybe the family don't mind since they made it a public viewing. If not you'll hear complaints soon. R.I.P Hector Macho Camacho you was a great fighter and made our country proud, but sadly you fell into drugs. We all hoped someday you would leave it :( I guess god knew you was struggling to much . Now you will suffer no more in this messed up world. My condolences to the family may god give you strength to go on. P.s. I think they should lay him to rest where he was born and raised in Puerto Rico he moved to New York at the age of 15 he always showed so much love to his/our country to the fullest .

Whoa! That's just plain creepy. I guess the family wanted the bullet hole displayed? Even a so-so mortician could reconstruct a skull. WTF?

This is for RICHARDHENRYHUBBARD your comments disgust me seriously that was racist I am Puerto Rican and that was disrespectful. All countries have drug addicts so for you to make a comment like that show's what a piece of crap you are. This comment is also for all the other rude people here. He was human being he made a mistake and took the wrong path. Just because he did doe's not give you the right to disrespect him or anyone else or someone's country. Everyone at some point in every race and culture has a friend or family member who ended up on drugs or took the wrong path whether it be stealing or selling drugs, etc... so get off your high horse for no one is immune to these things. God forbid your children if you have any ends up like this or a family member you would not want any one to disrespect them. whether you like it or not he will be a legend in boxing because he was one of the best . I and you should respect that. Have some respect for others and their family gets some class.

First thing that went through my mind was, this just isn't right to show this picture of this guy in his casket but then I remembered I was on the TMZ site, never mind.
