MICHAEL WATSON and his carer, Lennard Ballack, were last night hospitalised following an incident in Chingford when the former world title challenger was dragged out of a car.

According to a source close to Watson, the 51-year-old was in the passenger seat, with Mr Ballack driving, when a Volkswagon Golf slammed into the back of their vehicle.

The assailants sprayed a substance into Mr Ballack’s eyes, punched him, and pulled Watson – whose boxing career ended in 1991 after a loss to Chris Eubank left him with life-threatening injuries that left him disabled – out of the car and dragged him along the street.
