The body of Hector "Macho" Camacho was loaded onto an airplane in Puerto Rico today -- a plane bound for the United States, where a private funeral is scheduled to be held this week.

As we reported, Camacho's mother had requested a private funeral to be held in New York City, where he will also be buried.

An open casket public viewing was held on Tuesday in PR. A private mass was held earlier this week.

Quick note... Puerto Rico is part of the United States, it's a US Commonwealth and its people are US citizens.

Who is the parent    

Brings new meaning to the words "rest in peace" Even in death he has drama around him. I saw/heard this on ESPN. Makes sense why mom wants private funeral

Several fights broke out during the second day of the viewing of the slain fighter Tuesday, including a scratching match between his alleged girlfriend, another woman who says she's his longtime girlfriend and his sisters, according to local media reports in Puerto Rico.

You know, I've seen a second open casket wake after the body was flown across the country from the first wake. It's just a bad idea. Seriously, dead bodies don't hold up all that well after embalming. Gross. For real.

Camacho was absolutely a champ in the boxing ring. But, it sounds like he was an absolute beast to his family. So, I've lost a lot of respect for him.
