Like many lovers of Boxing we were somewhat shocked to hear that Jamie Moore had been shot whilst working out in Marbella.

Jamie, the ex-European light-middleweight champion, was shot several times as he left a facility where he was assisting Matthew Macklin in his training for his upcoming fight.

Although a number of shots were fired at Jamie, thankfully only two hit him, with reports suggesting that his knees took the full force.

It?s also being intimated that this was, most probably, a case of mistaken identity.

Recovering in hospital, Moore has used the social network, Twitter, to tweet,

‘Overwhelmed. Gutted and confused about what happened, but thank God I’m OK.?

Naturally messages of support have been pouring in for Jamie, prompting him to add,

‘It’s at times like this that you realise how well you’re thought of.?

‘I’ve had unbelievable support. Means a lot it really does.’

Here at Vital Boxing we?re glad that Jamie isn?t more seriously hurt, we hope the Police apprehend the perpetrators of the crime and that Jamie makes a quick, full recovery.
