Boxer is shot after asking drinkers not to smoke

‘A former heavyweight boxing champion was shot after asking three men to stop smoking in a wine bar.

James Oyebola, 47, was having a drink in the garden area of the venue when a dispute erupted over the new smoking ban.

One of the men pulled out a gun and fired at point-blank range into his face and leg.

Mr Oyebola, a father of two, was critically ill last night on a life support machine. His partner of 15 years and their children are keeping a vigil at his bedside.’
