Raging Bull returns to Spain

A FORMER featherweight boxing champion could face six years in prison if found guilty of assaulting three men at a brothel near Malaga.

Scott Harrison, 35, denies assaulting three Spaniards along with his two cousins in Alhaurin el Grande in 2007.

Harrison denies the charges, while his two cousins, who were with him at the time, remain on the run.

“All I tried to do was escape when people I never met started throwing bottles at us for reasons I didn’t know,” Harrison told the court in Malaga.

Paco Gonzalez, the owner of Oxigeno nightclub, claimed Harrison knocked his tooth out as he tried to protect two customers who were being attacked.

Salvador Jimenez, 39, told the court he was off work for 77 days following the assault, while the other alleged victim, 31-year-old Rafael Sainz Maza, has since committed suicide.

Harrison was released from prison last September after serving a two-and-a-half-year sentence for stealing a car and assaulting a policeman in Alhaurin el Grande in 2006.

He recently returned to the ring after a seven-year absence and is now back in Scotland awaiting the verdict of his latest trial
