    BBC Sport - Corrie Sanders: Ex-heavyweight champion dies in shooting

    Former heavyweight world boxing champion Corrie Sanders has died after being shot during an armed robbery.

    The 46-year-old was attending a family celebration at a restaurant near Pretoria in his native South Africa. He died in hospital.

    Sanders pulled off one of boxing's major shocks when he beat Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBO heavyweight title in 2003.

    He retired in 2008, having won 42 of his 46 fights.

    A police spokesman said Sanders was attending his nephew's 21st birthday party when gunmen entered the restaurant.

    "In the midst of the celebrations, about three suspects came in," the spokesman explained.

    "They were planning to commit an armed robbery. Then in the armed robbery they shot randomly. Corrie was shot in the hand and also the stomach.

    Just watched his obliteration of Wladimir Klitschko and the dude packed a hell of a punch. RIP Corrie.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.
