(CNN) — Hector “Macho” Camacho, the famed Puerto Rican boxer, is clinically “brain dead,” a doctor said Thursday.

A gunman shot Camacho in the face two days ago.

Camacho awed fans with his quick hands and ring antics, developing a reputation for flamboyance.

He was shot Tuesday in front of a bar in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, police said. Camacho, 50, was in the passenger seat of a car, sitting next to a man who was shot twice and killed, police said.
