SHAMED boxer Scott Harrison’s hopes of regaining a world title have been crushed after he was sentenced to four years in prison this week.
The 35-year-old former featherweight champion was found guilty of assaulting three men at a brothel near Malaga.
Harrison, who denied the charges, received two years each for two of the assaults and a fine for the attack on the third victim.
Paco Gonzalez, owner of the brothel, claimed Harrison knocked his tooth out as he tried to protect two customers who were being attacked the fighter and his cousins.
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.
Judge Julian Cruz said: “Harrison is not a first-time offender and his criminal record reflects a prior assault conviction.
“We’re also taking into account the dangerous nature of this attack, the serious injuries inflicted and the fact one of the accused was a professional boxer with extensive experience in fighting.”
