Fight Breaks Out Between Camacho’s Alleged Girlfriends During Memorial

BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (CBS Tampa/AP) — A fight between two women apparently broke out during Hector “Macho” Camacho’s memorial and wake Tuesday.

ESPN reports that the altercation occurred between the dead boxer’s alleged girlfriend, another woman who claims she’s his longtime girlfriend, and his sisters.

The fight reportedly began when Cynthia Castillo, the alleged girlfriend at the time of his death, kissed Camacho on the mouth during the wake, causing Gloria Fernandez, his alleged girlfriend of the past 25 years to retaliate, the report claims.

“I am the actual girlfriend of Macho, and those who don’t like it better not bring it,” Castillo told ESPN Deportes. “They shouldn’t be going after me. They should be thanking me for being with him at all times.”

Camacho’s sisters also entered the fray during the altercation.

“I went to get something to eat because Machito (Hector Camacho Jr.) told me to, and (Fernandez) came up to me and told me that I had to leave,” Castillo told ESPN Deportes. “I said no, so they threw my plate of food and attacked me, and I defended myself.”

Camacho, 50, was shot in the face Nov. 20 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, while sitting in a parked car outside a bar. Police found an open package of cocaine following the shooting. Camacho died three days later after being taken off life support.

Camacho held the super lightweight, lightweight and junior lightweight world titles during his career. He finished with a 79-6-3 record.

His funeral will be held Saturday.
