Moscow: A Russian boxer suspected of killing a man in a fight outside a nightclub has been charged with manslaughter, investigators said Tuesday.

The 22-year-old suspect, Valery Tretyakov, faces up to 15 years in prison over the weekend incident near the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg.

"He`s been charged," a spokesman for the Sverdlovsk regional branch of the Investigative Committee said. "He explained what happened that night during a check of the evidence at the scene."

"He has made a partial confession."

The body of a man in his late 20s was found with facial bruising outside a club in Kamensk-Uralsky town early Sunday morning, police spokesperson Valery Gorelykh said earlier.

The two men came to blows after getting into conflict in the Shokolad nightclub, presumably over a girl, Gorelykh said.

The boxer fled the scene but was later found with relatives.

The investigators` spokesperson said authorities were considered whether to remand the suspect in custody.
