A hospital rep told reporters, “The situation with ‘Macho’ is very delicate … his physical condition will help him but we will see.”The rep added, “[Camacho] went into cardiac arrest. The doctors were able to get his heart started again with the medicine and we are maintaining his blood pressure and pulse stable medically right now to see whether during this morning, afternoon or evening we see a positive change.”
Camacho’s last title bout was a loss in 1997 to then-welterweight champion Oscar De La Hoya. His career record was 79-6-3 (38 KOs)
The driver of the Ford Mustang Camacho was riding in, Adrian Alberto Mojica Moreno, was killed from the drive-by attack.
