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.

Why are so many people making such an ordeal over a picture. The caption said that it was a pic of Mr. Camacho in his his casket. Get over it!! If you look at history books you will see many pics of deceased people. If you didn't want to see it then why did you open the link. I know he had his demons, but he was an awesome fighter. I remember watching him as a teen when his opponent died from injuries sustained in the fight. Mr. Camacho wanted to pay for his entire funeral and mourned the death of his opponent. We all have demons but that's why we have God to ask for help and forgiveness!! RIP "Macho"

Sorry I do not like open casket funerals - attended one for a former coworker who died very young, his family from the East Coast did this, sorry but I could not bring myself to walk up there and pay my last respects to John.

What is so bad about an open casket. I have never been to a funeral where there was a closed casket. I think it is very important to look at your loved one or friend and say goodbye. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

It is very common in many cultures to have an open casket..and to take pictures..and display them in their home...no that isn't a bullet wound..look at the other pictures of him..it looks like a curl..

Taking pictures of dearly beloved has always been culturally accepted. It is life and death. There are worse things that people take pictures of. If it is Ok by the family, TMZ-- it is totally acceptable!!! Take a moment and contemplate how you want to live your life and finally die. PICTURE THAT!
