The former world champion, nicknamed Hector 'Macho' Camacho, is in a critical condition after being shot while sitting in a Ford Mustang car outside a bar in Bayoman, according to reports.
The 50 year old is said to have been taken to San Pablo Hospital to receive treatment for gunshot wounds to the neck and face.
His former opponent Oscar De La Hoya says, ""My heart and prayers go out to him and his family. I really do hope he makes it out OK.""
The driver of Camacho's car was allegedly killed.
