SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Former world boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho was shot in the face as he sat in a car outside the Puerto Rican capital Tuesday, and doctors said he was in serious condition but expected to survive.

Another man in the car, whose relationship to the 50-year-old Camacho wasn't immediately known, died in the attack in which at least one gunman opened fire on their vehicle in the city of Bayamon, according to a statement from police.

Camacho was rushed to Centro Medico, the trauma center in San Juan, where he was in critical but stable condition, Dr. Ernesto Torres, the hospital director, told reporters.

The bullet apparently struck him in the jaw but exited his head and lodged in his right shoulder and fractured two vertebrae, Torres said. The doctor said the boxer, who was trailed by drug and alcohol problems during a career that included some high-profile bouts, could be paralyzed from the shooting.

Kind of answers the question of who wins in a fight between a hands fighter and a gun. Just saying.

No it doesn't. That circumstance is an example if that circumstance not a different one.(If you could even call that "a fight".)

Coo. Too bad about Camacho though. Wiki'd Sugar Ray Leonard 2 day and found Macho beat him...and Roberto F'n Duran twice!! Granted they were older but at one point Duran had 71 wins and 1 loss with like 50 ko's or some craxy shit.

See ya in heaven Macho and when I do I gotta break something because you never paid me for that coke bitch...

:)

Sad how many boxers end though.

agree, but it seems MMA is becoming more popular with a new generation than boxing. A lot of it probably has to do with too much criminal influence over boxing matches, nobody wants to pay to see a fixed fight. Most MMA fans know enough to tell if a fight is fixed, I saw it happen once. They crowd went so nuts booing the owner actually had the decision changed to a draw.

Conversely, you see nobody in MMA hitting anywhere near as hard as pro boxing. Hopefully you won't see as many brain damaged competitors in their later years either...
