CEBU CITY, Philippines -- A former world boxing champion is fighting for his life in a Cebu City hospital after he was hacked with a bolo by his live-in partner as he slept in their house Wednesday morning in Barangay Umapad, Mandaue City.

Former World Boxing Council flyweight champion Malcolm “Eagle Eye” Tuñacao, 37, remained under observation in the intensive care unit of the Chong Hua Hospital.

Police said Tunacao, who was hacked several times by Jessica Grace Tiu, 36, around 6 a.m. Wednesday, fought back and ran out of the house despite his wounds. He was rushed to the hospital by a daughter from a previous relationship.

Tiu, who was detained at Mandaue City Police Station 5, admitted attacking Tuñacao but said she had no intention to kill him. She said she suspected Tuñacao of having an affair.
