A shadow-boxing assailant killed a 46-year-old man in Bronx, police said Friday.

Junal Jordan, the killer.

The attacker, Junal Jordan, who is in his 30s, was shadow-boxing in a hallway on the seventh-floor of a building at 601 E. 156th Street near St. Ann’s Avenue in Melrose just after 5:00 p.m. Thursday.

That was when he grabbed Bakary Darboe out of an elevator and beat him to death with a blunt object, cops said.

Responding officers discovered Darboe’s body in the hallway of the building.

Police found the wannabe pugilist a few blocks away, where he was taken into custody.

Sources said the two men did not appear to know one other, but both lived in the building.
