Former boxer Jamie Moore: 'I thought I was going to die after getting shot'

Former boxer Jamie Moore admits that he feared that he was going to die after getting shot twice while in Marbella.

Former European light-middleweight champion Jamie Moore has admitted that he felt "helpless and lonely" after he was shot twice in Marbella in August.

The 35-year-old was attacked during his stay in the Spanish town while training Birmingham fighter Matthew Macklin.

The Salford-born sportsman, who was left for dead after the attack, suffered injuries to his hip bone and leg.

Moore told The Guardian: "I thought, 'I'm not going to make this'. I thought I was finished and it's the emptiest, most horrible feeling ever. I felt helpless and lonely – lying on a driveway at night bleeding to death. I thought, 'I can't die here, how am I going to leave my kids with no dad?'"

Moore is father to a son and daughter.
