Boxing Trainer Shot dead by Gunmen at New Kingston gym
Boxing trainer Christopher Brown was reportedly shot and killed Wednesday morning at Fit Farm Fitness Club on Braemar Avenue in New Kingston.
Brown is the trainer for boxer Sakima Mullings.
The Corporate Communication Unit, the information arm of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, confirmed the death but could not provide specific details about the murder.
“The police are still processing the scene, but we can confirm that a murder took place,” a representative explained.
Middleweight boxer, Sakima Mullings, a two-time Contender champion, has been plotting a path towards a possible world-title fight within the next couple of years. He, however, has been diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a hereditary condition affecting the retina in his left eye, which also causes sensitivity to light.
Efforts to contact Sakima Mullings or his management proved futile.
