Macho Camacho had a very long and successful career in boxing, where he was able to conquer 3 world championship titles, but he also had a very difficult life battling with drug addiction and personal problems.

Several boxing celebrities throughout this week have been asking the public for prayers for the boxer and his family, they got their messages to everyone through several sources of media.
