Retired featherweight Lucky Gattellari has been sentenced to 7-and-a-half to 10 years in prison for being one of a group of men allegedly involved in the 2009 shooting death of a businessman, according to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

Gattellari, 63, pleaded guilty last July to being an accessory to the crime. Another man has also pleaded guilty, while another three are still going through the judicial process, according to the article.

Gattellari fought mainly from 1969 to 1973 and briefly held the Australian featherweight title. He came back in 1979 for a third-round stoppage loss to Barry Michael, who would go on to win a 130-pound title. The defeat dropped Gattellari’s record to 23-5 with 12 knockouts.
