HOW DO YOU expect Macho Camacho to rest in peace with all that racket going on?
At Camacho's wake in Puerto Rico on Tuesday, at least two fights broke out among the mourners who showed up to pay their final respects to the former five-time boxing champion, who died on Saturday after being shot outside a bar in San Juan.
The main event - if you had to pick one - involved Camacho's former girlfriends and his sisters.
At one point, Cynthia Castillo - who claimed she was the boxer's main squeeze at the time of his death - leaned into the coffin and kissed Camacho on the lips.
That turned out to be the kiss of death as the solemn occasion quickly turned into a Don King-worthy circus.
Apparently, Castillo - who was wearing a pink T-shirt with Camacho's face printed on the front of it - went to get a plate of food and then walked to a section reserved for family. There, she got into a fight with a very jealous Gloria Fernandez, who claimed she and Camacho had been together for the past 25 years. Camacho's sisters Estrella and Esther took Fernandez' side and the brawl became a three-on-one affair that eventually had to be stopped by police.
Afterward, Castillo, sporting a large scratch across her collarbone, talked with ESPN Desportes.
"I am the actual girlfriend of Macho, and those who don't like it better not bring it," Castillo said. "They shouldn't be going after me. They should be thanking me for being with him at all times.
"I went to get something to eat because Machito [Hector Camacho Jr.] told me to, and his [father's] ex-girlfriend [Fernandez] came up to me and told me that I had to leave. I said no, so they threw my plate of food and attacked me, and I defended myself."
On Thursday, Camacho's body was flown to New York where there was to be another wake before the burial on Saturday.
