THE BRONX - Family and friends gathered in The Bronx Tuesday night to celebrate the life of Latin boxing legend Hector "Macho" Camacho.

People congregated at Juan Laporte's gym on Southern Boulevard to celebrate the former champ, who was shot and killed on Nov. 20 in his native Puerto Rico.

Mourners say they hope young boxers can learn from Camacho's success in the ring, as well as his struggles outside of the ring.
