One Last Time, It Was "Macho Time"

Thousands of friends and admirers of Hector "Macho" Camacho, the ultra talented and flamboyant pugilist who showed equal portions of ring, sartorial and salesmanship skills in his pro ring career, which spanned 1980-2010, flooded St. Cecilia's Church in East Harlem on Friday...on one last occasion, it was Macho Time.
A wake was held for the athletic pride of Spanish Harlem in the 80s, who was shot on Tuesday, and died last Saturday after fighting, with appropriate grit, the damage caused by the bullet.
