MICHAEL WATSON remains in good spirits three months on from a horrific attack in Chingford which left he and his carer, Lennard Ballack, hospitalised.

Back in February, Watson suffered burns to the skin after he was pulled from the car he and Mr Ballack were in and was then dragged down the street.

The pair spent the night in hospital but Watson – whose boxing career ended in 1991 after a loss to Chris Eubank left him with life-threatening injuries that left him disabled – has since been recovering at home.
