Lee McAllister

A former Commonwealth title-winning boxer has been jailed for assault.

Lee McAllister - known as the Aberdeen Assassin - was the first Scot to hold two Commonwealth titles at different weights at the same time.

McAllister - who announced his retirement in 2013 - broke a man's jaw in a takeaway in July.

He was jailed for nine months after he admitted the assault at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
