UPDATE Camacho Jr updates 8CN on current health of his dad

Camacho Jr talks to 8CN about his dad and shares thoughts with the fans.

The following are direct quotes from my conversation with Hector Camacho Jr this afteroon.

“Things are not looking good for pops. I hope all of this is a wake up call for our youth. We can't keep living like the way we are.”

“World champion Juan Manuel Lopez paid for all flight costs for me and my family to get to Puerto Rico. That's what I call a champion! Inside and outside of the ring!”

“Felix Tito Trinidad is at the hospital with Camacho”

“My Grandma is waiting for me to get to Puerto Rico. I leave tonight, and when I get there we will discuss what were going to do.”
