A 34-year-old man who was a former contestant on a network reality show was killed over the weekend when he was hit by a train, TheBostonChannel.com reports.

Jeffrey Fraza, a boxer who appeared on the show "The Contender," was hit by a commuter train in Haverhill, Mass., in the early-morning hours Saturday, the story reports.

Fraza’s death is being investigated by the transit authority, MBTA, but his friend and trainer, Joe Calnan, was certain it was an accident.

Fraza, known as "Hell Raza" when he boxed, had been suffering from Crohn’s disease, but had been doing better. According to his girlfriend, Sylvia Pastrana, Fraza often walked home by way of the tracks.
