It?s not been a good few months for Prince Charles Martin!

After losing his IBF world heavyweight crown, in his first defence, at the hands of our own Anthony Joshua, the American heavyweight returned to the US determined to rebuild his career.

However, today, reports are filtering through that the boxer has been shot.

It transpires that Martin got involved in a dispute with two men in downtown Los Angeles, around 05:00 time.

Martin, not quite sure why the two assailants decided to shoot him, was shot in the forearm.

Reports suggest that Martin believed the gunshot wound, with blood everywhere, could endanger his life.

However, the wound wasn?t life threatening and the heavyweight is expected to make a full recovery after surgery.
