A lot of zaniness surrounded former world champion Hector Camacho during his boxing career. Even in death, "The Macho Man" couldn't get away from it.

Two former girlfriends and the sisters of the boxer, who died on Nov. 23 after having been shot in the face while sitting in a car outside a night club in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, on Nov. 20, got into a brawl at his wake in San Juan.

A 28-year-old woman, Cynthia Castillo, kissed the boxer on the mouth as he was in his casket. Castillo, who said she was Camacho's current girlfriend, walked away from the casket and to the area reserved for the boxer's family.

That triggered a fight involving Castillo and Gloria Fernandez, 50, whom the fighter's family recognized as his last girlfriend. Camacho's sisters, Esther and Estrella, also got involved.

In an interview with ESPN Deportes, Castillo said she was attacked.

"I went to get something to eat because Machito (Hector Camacho Jr.) told me to, and [Fernandez] came up to me and told me that I had to leave. [...] I said no, so they threw my plate of food and attacked me, and I defended myself."

Police were called to stop the fight, which spilled into an adjacent hallway. Camacho's mother, Maria Matias, was not happy with Castillo.

[Castillo] "was dangerous. The police were after her."

Castillo speaks in Spanish in this video from El Nuevo Dia, explaining her side of the events.

The colorful boxer's body was flown to New York on Thursday. Services will be held Saturday at 9 a.m. ET in New York and he'll be buried at Saint Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx.
