Boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho is apparently as divisive in death as he was in life.
Several fights erupted at the viewing of the slain fighter’s body in Puerto Rico this week, ESPN reports, including a scrap between women claiming to be his girlfriend at the time of his death, his former girlfriend and his sisters.
During the viewing Tuesday, Cynthia Castillo, who claimed to be Camacho’s most recent girlfriend, kissed Camacho’s body on the mouth and then walked to an area reserved for family, where she claimed someone threw a plate of food at her and then attacked her.
She got into an altercation with Gloria Fernandez, who said she had been Camacho’s girlfriend for the past 25 years, and Camacho’s sisters, Esther and Estrella, ESPN said.
If that weren’t enough, former former bantamweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez got into it with a man named Jorge Lozada, who said he’s a member of the Camacho family.
Camacho, 50, was shot Nov. 20 while sitting in a parked car outside a bar in Puerto Rico. He died three days later after being taken off life support.
The flamboyant Camacho was a boxing superstar in the 1980s, holding the super lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight world titles.
Camacho’s body was flown Thursday to New York, where hopefully he can rest in peace.
