IT’S reported that two men have been charged following the horrific amonia attack on Michael Watson in February.

The 52-year-old, who was with his carer and best friend Lennard Ballack, was sprayed with the liquid and dragged from his car to spark outrage in the boxing community.

Watson – a former Commonwealth middleweight champion who was forced into retirement after being badly injured in a 1991 bout with Chris Eubank – was left traumatised and scarred. Ballack, who suffered injuries to the head and eyes, was hospitalised alongside him.
