Scott Harrison handed four-year prison sentence

Phil Jay 05/11/2012

Lightweight contender Scott Harrison is set to appeal after the former world champion was sentenced to another four years in a Spanish prison for an assault at a brothel five years ago.

The 35 year-old was only released from similar term in September last year and could now be forced to head back to Spain to face another stretch that will almost certainly end his career for good.

The incident, involving an assault on two men, was said to have taken place in 2007 and has led to ‘The Real McCoy’ being sentenced to two years for each of the men, along with third minor assault charge and various fines.

Harrison is just two fights into his comeback from a six-year ring absence and has had his fair share of headlines since returning to the UK. This latest conviction, if not overruled, would be the final nail in the coffin of any further world title hopes for the two-time WBO featherweight king.
