A man who murdered a 31-year-old man in Altrincham last summer has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 28 years.
Liam O'Pray, 22, was last month convicted of fatally stabbing Rico Burton, 31, in Goose Green in August 2022.
Manchester Crown Court heard that O’Pray used a seven-inch knife to completely sever a major artery in Mr Burton’s neck during a bar brawl.
Mr Burton, the cousin of world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury, died after suffering massive blood loss.
O'Pray, of Salford, had denied murder during the trial but was found guilty by a jury of seven women and five men after three-and-a-half hours of deliberations following a three-week trial.
He was also found guilty of wounding with intent by slashing and stabbing Harvey Reilly, who was 17 at the time and now 18, during the same incident on August 22nd last year.
Jurors heard that O'Pray had a previous conviction for having a knife in public in 2019, but he claimed to be "not a violent person."
He was also found to have cannabis, cocaine and ketamine in his bloodstream.
Jailing O'Pray, Judge Alan Conrad KC said: "You were a stabbing waiting to happen.
"Yet again this court has to deal with the death, injury and devastation as a result of a knife being taken out."
