Edwin Rosario, a former lightweight boxing champion whose career was marred by cocaine, died of acute pulmonary edema that could have been caused by drug or alcohol abuse, pathologist Yocasta Brugal said Tuesday. Rosario, 34, died Monday night at his parents' home in Toa Baja, a suburb of San Juan, Puerto Rico. A police investigator suggested that Rosario may have died of a drug overdose. In a pulmonary edema, the lungs fill with fluid, causing them to swell. It can cause heart failure.

The word was that we would be seeing a new, improved Hector (Macho) Camacho; a more sophisticated, more mature model, ready to resume his boxing career with a vengeance. The WBC lightweight champion is back under the promotional aegis of Don King, preparing for a June 13 Madison Square Garden defense against Edwin Rosario. His new boxing advisor is 88-year-old Marty Cohen, who was not the matchmaker for Cain and Abel but reportedly saw the fight.

Livingstone Bramble, the dreadlocked Rastafarian with a dog named Snake and a snake named Dog, may have gone the way of all colorful fighters who fail to support their legend in the ring. And Hector (Macho) Camacho, whose childish vainglory is plenty legend enough without his marvelous fists,, may have gone the way of all lightweights who can no longer fit into an iridescent suit of lights.
