Boxer Harrison in jail in Spain

World featherweight boxing champion Scott Harrison is being held in a Spanish jail, the Foreign Office said.

The 29-year-old WBO title holder, from Cambuslang near Glasgow, was arrested in Malaga on 6 October, reportedly following claims of theft and assault.

The boxer, who has received treatment for depression and alcoholism, had been training in southern Spain ahead of a title defence in December.

A Foreign Office spokesman said he had refused consular assistance.

Harrison's UK lawyer Massimo Franchi said he had no knowledge of the arrest.

Last month Harrison announced he would stay out of Scotland while preparing for the fight against former European champion Nicky Cook.

In September the boxer was charged with six offences, including assault and fraud, following incidents in South Lanarkshire during the summer.

What a damn shame. This guy is really on a self destructive trip isn't he. It seems like it's just one thing after another. He could've made some very good fights but it seems like his boxing career has been over for some time now.

Supposedly it's all bullshit and was a simple misunderstanding because of the language barrier but I'm not so sure I believe that....he's out of jail now or will be out in a few hours from what I read on the net.

It might be Bullshit but you assume it's true based on the way his lifes been going these last few years. Problem after problem and bullshit that has stalled his career.
