Difloriano 55, was found with a gunshot wound to the head in a home on Victoria Street in Lewisham about 1:00pm on Friday and was taken to hospital. He was discovered near another man with gunshot wounds, Alexander Stefanovich, 36, who was found on Henry Street and who died on the way to hospital.

The 55-year-old is believed to be one of the founders of the Saint Michael Christian Brothers Fight Club, in the inner west, which was once linked to a murder investigation.

One of its members, Antonio Bagnato, was in 2017 sentenced to death in a Thai court for the kidnapping and murder of a Hells Angels member alleged to have been a major drug trafficker.

In 2015, the former bikie Wayne Schneider was abducted outside his home by five men and was beaten to death and buried near the Thai coastal town of Pattaya.

Bagnato was found guilty of murder, deprivation of liberty and disposing of a body but had his sentence significantly reduced on appeal and was released in December, 2018.
