Hector "Macho" Camacho
'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.

Celebrities live a very public lifestyle!!! With that being said their lives and deaths will be publicized. Pictures will be taken of Mother Teresa's vagina while giving birth if paparazzi was able to capture it!!! Photos of Whitney Houston were leaked so why would u people think any celebrity's death photos inside a casket or not be publicized??? You guys wanted proof bin laden was dead so stop being walking contradictions. if the family didn't want pictures taken why have a PUBLIC open casket funeral for a celebrity?

death is a natural thing and taking photographs is a normal occurrence in puerto rican culture. it's not offensive, it serves to provide closure and honor the dead. there are much more "offensive" things on the internet. get a grip.

Its not a bullethole it's his hair. BTW Death is taboo for some. Dont look at it if it offends you.

Some people of the Latino community record funerals or take pictures of the deceased.

A. It's not a bullet hole, that's his curl, it's kind of his signature style, and B. If you don't like it don't look at it and take time to comment. Macho Camacho is a hero to his people and it is not uncommon for a person of his stature to be displayed this way. It is very honorable, and it is most definitely what he would have wanted.

In the islands viewing and taking pictures is a norm... even doing the viewing in a family members home is a normal and a sign of respect... not saying that its right or wrong ... just saying that to some its ok so that should be respected ...

How sad. I wish you would post this in the area he was shot so tht the one who pulled the trigger would see that he took a great boxer from this world. BTW, that' not the bullet wound on his head, it's his hair.
