A man is dead after getting into a fight with another man Wednesday afternoon in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.

Family and friends are mourning the retired boxer who they say died while protecting his daughter.

Neighbors say 58-year-old Michael Tingling was a popular figure in this Rogers Park neighborhood.

On Wednesday, he left a salon to pick up his 15-year-old daughter Masharah from the Chicago Math and Science Academy.

The teen says a man approached her. Her father told him to go away. Instead, he punched Tingling in the chest.

His death was ruled a homicide.

Police are questioning the man who punched Tingling, but no charges have been filed.
