Former WBO heavyweight champion Herbie Hide is facing a prison sentence after pleading guilty to the charge of conspiracy to supply cocaine.
The British based 42-year-old was arrested earlier this year after a police sting organised by a national newspaper. Initially at the start of his trial at Norwich Crown Court today, he pleaded not guilty but later changed his plea to guilty.
Hide was granted bail with conditions, including that he reports to a police station in Norwich every day, and is due to be sentenced on November 29. In court the judge warned him he could face a two year prison sentence.
