Hector ‘Macho’ Camacho: Catfight Breaks Out At Ex-Boxer’s Funeral [Photos]

Catfight at funeral of Hector Camacho

San Juan, PR — The funeral of boxing legend Hector “Macho” Camacho turned turbulent as a fight broke out between a woman claiming to be his girlfriend, a former lover, and his sisters.

Family, friends, and fellow boxers gathered in San Juan to say goodbye to Camacho, who died after being taken off of life support after he was shot in the face.

The fight started after 28-year-old Cynthia Castillo, who was wearing a pink shirt with Camacho’s face on it, leaned down to kiss him in his casket.

She then walked over to the area reserved for family. This caused tension to spill over with Camacho’s sisters and former lover Gloria Fernandez.

The fight moved outside the memorial service as police separated the women and bystanders snapped pictures and video with camera phones.

Castillo said she was Camacho’s girlfriend before he died and called him “my partner, my friend, my brother.”

Police urged Castillo to leave while the sisters returned to the memorial service.

The service was filled with emotional moments as Camacho’s mother cried and said, “They killed him.”

Camacho was shot November 20 as he sat in a parked car with a friend outside a bar in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. The friend died at the scene and Camacho died three days later after being removed from life support.

Police said they have suspects but have not arrested anyone for the shooting.

Henry Neumann, the secretary of the island’s sports and recreation department said, “Everybody loved him here in Puerto Rico.”

Neumann continued, “He is one of those athletes who transcended the barriers of his country, not only for his skill inside the ring, but for his personality.”

    Mexicans are just as bad as blacks know don't even know how to act at a funereal. Welcome to the new America we will be a third world country in about twenty years.

    They're in Puerto RICO you racist prick… They are EXACTLY where they came from. There's not ONE Mexican there. Why don't you go back to Germany, or England or where ever the fuck you're melanin challenged ass is from, instead? When America becomes 3rd World it'll be because people like you robbed it blind. Go somewhere and fuck your goat.

    To Daniel, they are not Mexicans they are Puerto Ricans and we are part of the United States and have always been. We don't need a Green Card. So before you go writing garbage get your facts straight. As for Tim, I have been to many Funerals of all Races and there is always someone wearing inappropriate clothing.
