DISGRACED Scottish boxer Scott Harrison has been ordered to return to Spain where he faces jail.

The 37-year-old former world world champion will face extradition on a European Arrest Warrant for an assault on three men in a Malaga brothel in 2012.

The order was made by Sheriff Thomas Welsh QC at Edinburgh Sheriff Court following a lengthy extradition appeal from Spanish authorities.

Fleeing to Scotland in 2012, after being given a four year jail term, Harrison had avoided extradition for three years.

In and out of prison for the best part of a decade, the ‘Scottish Raging Bull’ previously served a two-and-a-half year sentence for assaulting a police officer with an ashtray in Alhaurin in 2009.

Harrison’s defence has a week to appeal the decision.
