Manuel Charr hospitalised after being shot

Charr is reportedly out of immediate danger after the shooting

FORMER world heavyweight title challenger Manuel Charr was hospitalised overnight after being shot during an altercation at a kebab shop in Essen, Germany.

According to reports from German news outlets, the 30-year-old is currently not in any immediate danger after undergoing emergency surgery following the incident.

The Cologne-based fighter was allegedly out with popular rapper Kay One at the time of the shooting, which witnesses claim occurred after a provocation directed at Charr.

The perpetrator reportedly fled from the restaurant in a car and is still at large.

The shooting comes just weeks after Charr was knocked out by Mairis Breidis and the German has lost three of his last five contests.
