Murdered Puerto Rican Boxer Propped up in the Ring at His Wake

This is super creepy. 23 year old Puerto Rican boxer Christopher Rivera Amaro was shot dead in the city of Santurce on Sunday Jan. 26th and for his wake keep six days later on Friday Jan. 31st, his family decided to prop up his corpse in a simulated ring. Yep, y'all are looking at a corpse.

Hundreds of mourners who came to his wake at the community recreation center within the public housing project where he lived in San Juan found him posed in the ring, a yellow hood on his head, sunglasses glasses over his eyes and blue boxing gloves on his hands. 

His family said they want people to remember him as a boxer and not a victim of gun violence. His killer still at large. 

He's survived by a wife, mother and son. 

See more photos after the cut...
