Hamed crash victim denies charge
Anthony Burgin
Mr Burgin was arrested after a complaint by Hamed's family
A man who was seriously injured in a high-speed collision caused by boxer Naseem Hamed has denied a charge of dangerous driving.

Anthony Burgin, 40, of Muskoka Drive, Bents Green, Sheffield, was arrested after an alleged incident involving Hamed's wife Eleasha last April.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge at Sheffield Crown Court and was granted unconditional bail until 17 March.

Hamed was jailed after his car collided head-on with Mr Burgin's car in 2005.

Mr Burgin suffered fractures to every major bone in his body in the crash.

Hamed, 33, served 16 weeks of a 15-month jail sentence for dangerous driving and was electronically tagged after his release.

The alleged incident between Mr Burgin and Mrs Hamed is said to have happened on Long Line, on the outskirts of Sheffield, on 19 April last year.
