Former Irish Champ Moore: I am gutted and confused after shooting incident

FORMER Irish champion Jamie Moore has confirmed he is ‘ok’ after a shock shooting incident in Spain over the weekend.

The former British and European strap holder was shot in both legs whilst in Marbella preparing Matthew Macklin for his August 30 National Stadium hosted World title eliminator.

The respected Sky Sports pundit, who is reported to have been injured due to a mistake in identity, took to Twitter to express his confusion at the incident and to thank the people that have shown support.

“Thanks for all the well wishes,” said Moore. “I am overwhelmed, gutted and confused about what happened, but thank God I am ok.

“It’s times like this that you realise how well your thought of. I’ve had unbelievable support and it means a lot, it really does.”
