MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The ex-trainer of former Australian heavyweight champion Vince Cervi has been jailed for more than eight years for killing the former boxer during a scuffle in 2009.

The Victorian Supreme Court was told Tuesday that David Allan Curran fired a fatal shot into Cervi's stomach as the pair wrestled over a gun following a dispute about furniture.

Curran was originally found guilty of murder but gained a retrial last year, with a second jury finding him guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Cervi beat James Grima to win the Australian title in 1993, but lost in his first defense to British-born Joe Bugner.
