British super-welterweight champion Scott Fitzgerald spent the night in jail for an alleged attack on his ex-girlfriend, then took to Instagram and called those who he said “let him in.”
Fitzgerald, who won a Commonwealth Games gold medal in 2014, was arrested Tuesday and seemed worse for wear in the video clips he posted on his social media, launching a dirty-mouthed rant after his release.
The 28-year-old described an incident as ‘a kick-off with my ex-partner and her family’.

He started to seem to be raping: “24 hours in a cell, that’s a shit. All my life I’ve been stolen, robbed and stuff, how I got it. F *** em!
Fitzgerald then mentioned a series of people in his Instagram story.
British super welterweight defeated domestic rivals Anthony Fowler and Ted Cheeseman in two successful confrontations last year, but his burgeoning professional career could now be delayed by disciplinary action if found guilty.
