Scott Harrison

 

The fighter has been told to appear in a Costa del Sol court in September to face claims he attacked three men at a brothel.

Prosecutors want him jailed for two years for each of the three counts of assault he is charged with.

A conviction would automatically mean more prison time as he already has a criminal record in Spain. Harrison, 34, served two-and-a-half years for assaulting two men, including a police officer.

He returned to Scotland after being released last September.

A second custodial sentence in Spain would wreck his hopes of a triumphant return to boxing.

The ex-WBO featherweight champis due to make his comeback against French-Algerian Brahim Bariz at theKelvin Hall in Glasgow on June 29 after seven years out of the ring.

Three judges will decide whether to jail Harrison after a one-day trial in Malaga on September 26.

The prosecution witnesses will include a brothel owner who claims the boxer and two pals attacked him and two customers in a bust-up five years ago.

One of the alleged victims committed suicide after the fight at Oxigeno, a short drive from Harrison’s repossessed former home in Alhaurin el Grande, near Malaga.

State prosecutors say Harrison and fellow Scots David and Edward McGill smashed Spaniard Salvador Jimenez on the head with an ashtray after being thrown out of the brothel on May 20, 2007.

An assault outside is alleged to have taken place as Salvador’s friend Rafael Sainz tried to get him to hospital.

Rafael, 31, jumped off a roof terrace at his home in 2009 after spiralling into depression, which pals blame on the attack.

Salvador received treatment for injuries to his neck, head, knees and wrist. Brothel owner Francisco Gonzalez lost a tooth.

Prosecutors also want Harrison and his two pals to pay £8500 in compensation to their alleged victims if convicted.

He spent two days in custody earlier this month in Glasgow after being arrested over claims he assaulted fiancee Stacey Gardner, 29, at their home.

But Harrison says he has banished the drink, drug and depression demons that have plagued him in recent years.

Earlier this month, he said: “ScottHarrison is going to be back – with a bang.
