Adam Watt Accused of Being Accessory to Murder

Adam Watt, a retired Australian cruiserweight who challenged unsuccessfully for a world title, has been arrested for allegedly being “an accessory before the fact to murder,” according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

The case stems from allegations that a member of a cocaine syndicate paid a hit man $200,000 to shoot and kill a witness. The hit man was arrested, as were the cocaine syndicate member’s wife, Watt and another man.

Watt, 46, fought as a pro boxer from 1996 to 2001, going 14-4 with 14 KOs, according to BoxRec. Three of those losses came to familiar names, including Wayne Braithwaite (who knocked Watt out in one round in 1999), Johnny Nelson (who knocked Watt out in five rounds in a world title bout in 2000) and Sebastiaan Rothmann (who knocked Watt out in eight rounds in 2001).

He also competed as a pro kickboxer, going 37-12-1, according to Wikipedia, which also mentions this facet of his criminal background:

“In September 2008, Watt was arrested for conspiring to import chemical precursors to the drug methamphetamine. While Watt was on remand awaiting trial, he was hit from behind with a sandwich toaster inside a pillow case. When ambulance officers reached Watt he was clinically dead, but they managed to revive him at the scene.”

Sounds like a George Foreman grill ad.
