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 wish to have not seen him put on display like that. why do people feel the need to extort a dead person like that and it don't even look like him. In a few months his flesh will perish in the ground and all will be left will be bone. But id rather remember him for his accomplishments. please respect the dead and don't put there corpse on display with a coffin veil covering him like he is a precious jewel. so sad...so sad....

That is NOT a bullet hole. It is his notorious curl that he always pulled down on his forhead.

That's not a bullet hole in his head, it's his hair.

I flipped over because the photo you have on your front page does appear to show a bullet wound - I looked and thought, Nah, they wouldn't do that...it's not the kind of reaction I'm proud of, but is it really the reaction you wanted in the first place, TMZ? I've been with you through 911 calls and the rest, but coffin photos, made even worse by showing a body that yep, does seem to have a bullet in it, sorry. Bye bye -

I don't think its bad to show the casket its life and thats the way we will be displayed whether it be cremetated or viewing the casket. I'm sadden by his death but he was into drugs and drugs will lead to death by thugs or your body will shut down.
