Famed Puerto Rican boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho is clinically brain dead, doctors said Thursday, though they said family members were disagreeing on whether to take him off life support.
Dr. Ernesto Torres said doctors have finished performing all medical tests on Camacho, who was shot in the face Tuesday night.
“We have done everything we could,” said Torres, who is the director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan. “We have to tell the people of Puerto Rico and the entire world that Macho Camacho has died, he is brain dead.”
He said at a news conference that the family expects to say by Friday if Camacho should remain on life support.

It looks like the drama between 50 Cent and ex-bestie Floyd Mayweather is heating back up!
On Thursday, rapper, 50 Cent fired the first shot via his official Twitter account, confirming the rumor that he and Floyd Mayweather were no longer friends and were not, in any way, partners in his upstart boxing promotion venture.
“TMT IS OVER. The Money team is no longer a team,” 50 Cent wrote. “I’m no longer a part or down with TMT Promotions. If anyone wants a Money Team jacket I’m selling mine for a dollar.
Recently, 50 also used the Twitterverse to indicate that his fighter, Yuriorkis Gamboa, wants to move up in weight to take Mayweather out.

We’re not sure how this surfaced since in the letter Summers asks Mayweather to tear it up after reading, but in the letter he encourages the boxing champ to split from long-time adviser Al Haymon because he did an underhanded deal, and join the new venture so he can rake in over $100-$200 million a fight.
