Former Boxing Champ Berbick Murdered
Former heavyweight world champion TREVOR BERBICK was hacked to death yesterday (28OCT06) in Jamaica. He was 52. The Canadian-born boxer was found in a churchyard with a "deep chop wound" in his head. It is believed he was attacked with a machete or a hatchet. Detectives are hunting for his killer. Berbick, who was the last man to fight Muhammad Ali before his retirement, moved to Jamaica in 2002 after a blood clot on his brain forced him to retire from boxing in 2000. In 1992 he was sentenced to five years in jail for sexually assaulting his family babysitter. He is survived by his wife and six children.
