    I wasn't a big fan of his show boating but he was a great boxer. Prayers for him and his family.

    I'm not a boxing fan but he was one I enjoyed watching in his earlier days. Seems like he got violent and into drugs later in his career. Still though its sad.

    He was taken off life support a little while ago. Macho had struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol, and not surprisingly (at least not to me) cocaine was found in the vehicle where he was shot. Puerto Rico (my birthplace) has a very high murder rate and the great majority are drug/gang related. I'm sure this incident was another drug related crime, and very likely, Macho's friend (driver) was the primary target. Nonetheless, he was a great boxer back in the day.

    Correction: He's still on life support. There were some news outlets that reported earlier today that he was taken off life support, but that was incorrect as the family was waiting for Macho's son to arrive from NYC. I just read that after the son saw him in the hospital the family decided to keep him on life support, for now.

    That is a loss to the boxing world. He was an excellent boxer in his day.

    Man, I'm a little heart broken about this. I can somewhat relate to his troubles as a young man in NYC. Bad stuff around every corner just waiting to happen. It takes a strong support system to not get caught up in it.

    I loved his style in the ring especially early in his career. Fast hands and footwork that made for a very efficient fighter. Sad. I feel for his family.
