A former Yugoslav boxing champion, who received a controversial gold medal in the 1984 Olympics was shot and seriously injured yesterday in the Bosnian Serb town of Banja Luka. Antun Josipovic was awarded the gold for Yugoslavia in Los Angeles, when the current heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield, was disqualified in the semi-final round for knocking out his opponent after the final bell. Josipovic further created a stir when he invited Holyfield to stand beside him at the awards ceremony.
