Jamie Moore was recovering in a hospital after being wounded by a gunshot in Marbella, in an incident that shocked sport bookies and price per head agents around the world.
Bookmakers UK services learned that the former European champion who is very famous with pay per head agents was hit in the leg and hip after a party early in Sunday morning and is currently in a hospital under armed guard.
A gunman is believed to have fired five shots, and sport bookies were very concerned when they found out that Moore was hit twice as he returned to an apartment block located in the Spanish resort.
The Salford man, who became a trainer after he retired from the ring, has since received an operation, and price per head agents wonder how severely the former boxer was injured after the incident.
Sport bookies found out that the 35-year-old was working with Matthew Macklin at his Marbella-based gym before a middleweight fight set to take place in Dublin on August 30 against Jorge Sebastian Heiland.
Pay per head agents saw that on Monday evening, Macklin tweeted: “Just to let everyone know Jamie Moore is still in hospital but he’s ok. He was shot in his legs but the doctors have said there shouldn’t be any serious or permanent damage done.”
During his career as a light-middleweight, Moore, who is also training Hull lightweight Tommy Coyle, held the European, British and Commonwealth titles, and was a very big favourite with many price per head agents.
Bookmakers UK services remember that in 2006, Macklin was stopped by Moore, but sport bookies saw that he enlisted the services of his former rival after a losing last year to WBA champion Gennady Golovkin.
