He was charged in March after the dinner at Tottenham Hotspurs’ Lilywhite House headquarters.

He appeared before Highbury Magistrates Court last month accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

The boxer, who won the IBF cruiserweight world title in 1989, was bailed and will appear at the same court in August.

McCrory told the Mirror that he wouldn’t comment on the case – but he denies the allegations.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed: “The charge refers to an offence alleged to have occurred at the London Academy of Excellence in Tottenham on September 25.”
