Hector Camacho update: Doctors say he has intermittent brain activity

Doctors now say that Hector "Macho" Camacho, who was shot yesterday in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, is showing intermittent brain activity, and will be tested again tomorrow morning at 6 am local time.

Primera Hora said that he's showing 3-4% brain activity, and hasn't been ruled as "brain dead" yet. Camacho is said to have undergone changes "more negative than positive," but the 50-year-old champion is still fighting.

Julio Cesar Chavez spoke with ESPN Deportes, saying that Camacho is "a great friend," and that even though they were rivals in boxing, he considers Camacho possibly the best friend he has of all the fighters he faced throughout his career.

Chavez defeated Camacho in 1992, winning a wide decision with the WBC junior welterweight title at stake.

We'll have more updates when there is anything available on the situation. Again, our thoughts and best wishes are with the family, friends, and loved ones, as well as Hector Camacho himself.
