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.

I don't have a problem with TMZ showing these kind of pictures. But it is kind of weird how TMZ won't show pictures of women's nipples but will show you pictures of dead bodies.

Really disrespectful to post a picture of someone in their casket. It's not something I want to see, and I'm sure plenty of other people feel the same way. TMZ, you suck.

I think it is disrespectful to show his body like that, you should've put it on a link to let people see something like that. That is very disturbing to look at a body in casket. It's low class all the way. Shame on you TMZ, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!

@Nancy, you are the most hateful Beotch I have seen on any site... EVER!!! I hope someone slaps fire out you for saying something so hateful.You must be a single, lonely, & ugly, miserable human being. Do yourself and everyone else a favor and stop spewing your hateful comments. If you can't do that, put a bullet in your head and STFU.

People you need to understand that even thought it may not be part of your culture, this is part of ours. We have always taken photos of our deceased, it is not a big deal, to us this is not classless. There is no bullet hole in his head, that is his signature curl. I think that before you comment you need to do some reasearch first.

TMZ you've always been tacky as f*ck to me. But this right here... smh, you people are disgusting for posting this picture. Have some respect for the diseased and his family.

The black mark on his forehead is his trademark curl. Not a bullet hole.

Its degrading to have a pic of the boxer. Give them some privacy. And by the way there's no bullet on his head its a curl from his hair hanging down that he never cuts off. He got shot on his neck where the arteries became damaged and caused his brain death.

Wow TMZ ...this is really low of you .....no class at all...have some respect!

I hadn't heard of the guy before he died, so I have no idea what type of person he was, but I would slap whoever put that funeral together. That casket setup is disgustingly tacky.
And for those saying this is disrespectful of TMZ to post... perhaps you've forgotten the dead pics of David Carradine hanging in a closet, Michael Jackson's autopsy photos, or the photos of Rihanna's face after Chris Brown put his fist all over it? TMZ isn't known for class. It's a freaking gossip site.
