Former world champion boxer David Haye appeared in court today charged with assault after allegedly attacking another man at a London gig.
The 41-year-old is accused of attacking Nickesh Jhala at the Hammersmith Apollo in west London in October 2021.
Haye, one of Britain’s most successful boxers, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday, confirming his name and date of birth and entering a not guilty plea.
District judge Annabel Pilling granted Haye bail, with the trial set for September 9.

The Londoner appeared in the Westminster Magistrates’ Court dock wearing an orange and brown jacket and dark jeans, with his hands cuffed behind his back.
The alleged victim, the police officer investigating the case and three other witnesses are due to give evidence during the one-day trial later this year.
