Bulli Blaster fighting for his life...

... Possible gangland overdose connection ... Shannon Taylor. Source: The Daily Telegraph

POLICE are investigating whether Shannan Taylor was the mistaken victim of an attempted gangland hit.
Strike Force Calligan has widened its investigation to include the boxer's drug overdose on Sunday night which left him in an induced coma and on life support in Wollongong Hospital, The Daily Telegraph reported.


The stunning development has thrown new light on how Taylor almost overdosed after mistakenly consuming heroin he thought was cocaine.

Detectives are investigating if the drug substitution was a planned "hot-shot" to bring down another man as part of an ongoing drug war.

Several deaths have already been connected to the war.



Taylor remained on life support last night after doctors decided against earlier plans to revive him yesterday morning.

He has already had three heart machines removed but remains on a respirator.

The strike force was formed earlier this month following the disappearance of underworld figure Goran Nikolovski, whose car was found incinerated in bush at Macquarie Pass on November 4.

Nikolovski - still missing - is alleged to be an associate of the man who provided Taylor and his drinking party with the heroin they believed was cocaine on Sunday night.

The associate also snorted the drug and was rushed to hospital with Taylor, but was released on Tuesday.

His ill-fated hook-up with Taylor appears to have happened by accident.

Taylor was drinking with his promoter Rod Van Akker and another man on Sunday night and later returned to Van Akker's home.

At some point the associate of Nikolovski arrived at the house, left for a short while, and returned with another man and the drug they believed was cocaine.

As well as being an associate of Nikolovski, the man was also connected to another underworld figure, convicted drug dealer Saso Ristevski, who was executed in front of his family at his home on September 28.

Ristevski and Nikolovski both served jail time for a large cocaine haul.

Police who searched Van Akker's home on Monday took away a dinner plate they believe was used to cut up the powdered drug.

As well as the recent deaths, another close associate of Nikolovski also recently took himself to hospital with severe stomach complaints, another area of interest for police.

Adding weight to police suspicions the seller targeted the associate is the fact there have been no other hospital admissions from overdose victims affected by the same batch of drugs, indicating he was deliberately targeted.

Shanno Taylor has made a decent recovery, he is back training other fighters 1 or 2 days a week, and has just completed his autobiography, he realises he will never fight again.

not sure but will find out. interesting to hear was that the night he keeled over he thought he was hoovering up a line of coke, but he actually sucked up a fucken great line of very clean smack, he was dead on arrival and was ressussed 4 or 5 times and was in a coma for over a week, he had to learn to walk and talk again and it has taken a massive toll on his body etc. good luck to him, i hope he comes good properly.
