Johannesburg - Ex-world heavyweight champion Corrie Sanders' family believes his life could have been saved had he received urgent medical attention, the SABC reported on Monday.

Sanders died in the Kalafong Hospital in Pretoria on Sunday after being shot in the stomach at a party in Brits the previous evening.

The fatal shot was fired while Sanders was trying to shield his daughter from three armed robbers who had stormed into the restaurant and started shooting randomly, Beeld reported.

According to relatives, Sanders was taken to Kalafong despite the fact that there was a private hospital nearby, because he didn't have medical aid.

His ex-wife, Sunette, said he'd also been refused treatment at the Steve Biko Hospital in Pretoria because he was shot outside the Tshwane area.
