Peter Nightingale, a retired British boxer who once captured a regional title belt, has been sentenced to eight years in prison after being found guilty of killing another man in a social club in February, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 42-year-old victim “died of severe head injuries,” the newspaper reported. Nightingale had been facing a murder charge but instead was convicted of manslaughter.

Nightingale, 43, fought from 1996 to 2001, capturing the British Boxing Board of Control’s Midlands Area welterweight title in 1999, according to BoxRec.com. He was 6-11-2 at the time. After several more fights, including a points loss to future junior-middleweight contender Jamie Moore (in Moore’s second pro bout), Nightingale left the sport at 11-14-3 (1 knockout).
