SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - The mother of Hector 'Macho' Camacho plans to have the former championship boxer taken off life support Saturday, after three more of his sons arrive in Puerto Rico to be with him.
Maria Matias said Friday night she made the decision to have doctors remove him from life support. The boxer's oldest son says he opposes the decision.
Matias says three more of the boxer's sons will arrive in Puerto Rico and will get to see him for the last time on Saturday. She says her son "died three days ago and he's only alive now because of a machine."
The former world champion was shot in the face Tuesday night in his hometown of Bayamon.
