Update: Final Bell for Oyebola Today

BlackFollowing yesterday’s premature news of former British heavyweight champion James Oyebola’s demise, I’m sad to report that the gentle giant’s life support machine, which he’s been dependent on since being shot on Monday night, is to be switched off later today. The 46 year old, leaves a long-term partner and two children behind. To date, there are no developments on the detainment of the  three men who fled the scene following the shooting. As always, thoughts go to James’ family and to those for whom he was more than a former boxer.

Ian McNeilly, of BritishBoxing.net, provides an excellent obituary for the giant, Nigerian born fighter. Click here for the full article.
