Ex-boxer Hide denies fight fixing allegations

A former boxing world champion has been caught on camera apparently offering to fix a fight for money.

Herbie Hide, from Bawburgh near Norwich, is seen on video telling undercover reporters from The Sunday Sun he could rig a match for £1,000,000.

The paper claims he also put its staff in touch with a drug dealer who offered them cocaine.

Herbie Hide told ITV News Anglia reporter Malcolm Robertson he realised it was a sting and was just playing along with it.
