Rafael Rodríguez Mercado of the Río Piedras Medical Center said Camacho’s brain had stopped functioning, according to Puerto Rican daily newspaper El Nuevo Día. The hospital director Ernesto Torres said the former boxer has fallen into a “deep coma” and his “outlook isn’t good,” El Nuevo Día correspondent Melisa Ortega tweeted.
But Torres stopped short of declaring Camacho completely brain dead, telling reporters in a videotaped press conference that there was enough brain activity to justify ordering more tests.
