Harrison appeal thrown out, ordered to return to Spanish jail in two weeks

Phil Jay 08/05/2013

Former world champion Scott Harrison has lost his appeal against another prison sentence on the Costa del Sol and has now been given just two weeks to return to Spain to begin his second stretch for assault.

The 35 year-old has already served time for a separate incident and now faces another four years for an alleged triple attack in 2007, with the Spanish authorities threatening to arrest Harrison if he doesn’t comply.

Harrison has restarted his boxing career since his initial release in 2011, but after losing to Liam Walsh last month facing an uncertain future, not only in the sport but now outside of the ring also.

Several challenges by Harrison to the charges have seemingly only served to delay the inevitable for the Scottish fighter, who could now be forced back if he won’t adhere to the order via his own free will.
