Isiah Jones, a 28-year-old professional boxer, was fatally shot on Sept. 19 in Detroit, Michigan. The father of two was reportedly shot by a family member.
According to The Detroit News, police are investigating, but Cpl. Dan Donakowski said a relative shot him. Roshawn Jones, his former trainer, said the relative was the boxer’s brother: "It's heartbreaking ... that his brother allegedly did that to him. He had two kids, a boy and a girl, and he needed to support them in any way he can by not being in the streets. So he chose boxing to help him take care of his family."
Roshawn Jones is not related to Isiah Jones.
According to The Ring, Isiah Jones, who fought three times at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, had a professional record of 9-7 (3 knockouts) and an amateur record of 52-2.
