Harrison Loses Appeal, 4 Years in Prison to Come Soon?

by David P. Greisman

Long-troubled former featherweight titleholder Scott Harrison has lost his appeal of an assault conviction and could soon begin a four-year prison sentence, according to The Scottish Sun.

Harrison, 35, had been found guilty of being part of a group in 2007 that assaulted three men at a Spanish brothel.

He “could now be hauled back to serve his sentence within weeks,” the newspaper said, citing an unnamed source that said Harrison has no ability to automatically appeal the conviction, though he could attempt a last-ditch effort to save himself  “on constitutional grounds.”

Harrison was just released from prison in September 2011 after spending two and a half years there for an incident in which he assaulted a police officer and another man and attempted to steal a car.

He had last fought in November 2005 before returning in June 2012. Harrison won that fight, and came out victorious again this past September, bringing his record to 27-2-2 with 15 knockouts. Harrison had been slated to have his third comeback fight this past December.

The good news is that he will be able to stay from pubs and bar fights for four years.
