Fighting Fergus Wilson has been KOed for the second time in a courtroom scrap...but is now demanding a re-match.
The former boxer LOST on points in the magistrates court who convicted him of assaulting estate agent Dan Wells.
Now he has lost again at Canterbury Crown Court after appealing against the common assault conviction and sentence.
He wanted to bring a boxer’s punch ball into the court room to prove how hard he can punch..he was told it wasn’t necessary. He said: “I am a very big man and I can hit very hard indeed. Yet Mr Wells has no injury”.
In his opening statement he had used former Manchester United manager David Moyes and ex-United legend Eric Cantona as examples – along with the Charles Saatchi and Nigel Lawson incident.
The judge said that they believed the evidence of eye-witness Katie Picking, who had sat opposite Mr Wells during the attack – but said the telling expression which convince them Wilson had thrown the punch was: “Right you little sh*t” which he had uttered after storming into the office to confront his victim.
The businessman, who has many properties in the Ashford area – had been fined £500 by magistrates, ordered him to pay £150 compensation and £1000 costs and victim surcharge.
The judge and panel decided not to alter the sentence but ordered him to pay another £750 appeal court costs within six months.
After the hearing Mr Wilson said: “I feel very unhappy with the verdict and will now consult my lawyers about what where I go with this.
“But I am not very happy with how this case has been handled by some in the police force. My wife and my relationship with PLS ended a while ago. We were not very happy with a number of things that had gone on.”
