Very sad news, he was living at the sally army in a rough part of Cov (Hillfields). A 32 year old has been arrested on suspicion of murder, though it's still unclear as to what happened. Edit: he has been released on bail, the local wrag believe he died from a drugs overdose.
He was an exciting fighter in his day, with some terrible haircuts.
