Ex-boxing champ Paul Spadafora pleads guilty to domestic dispute

Former lightweight boxing champ Paul Spadafora the “Pittsburgh Kid” has pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and simple assault on police officers who responded to a domestic dispute at his home in 2016.

The 42-year-old boxer was sentenced to time served and probation.

Authorities have said he challenged the officers to fight, tried to push one down the stairs and spit on another. He was shocked with a stun gun and taken into custody.

Spadafora also was accused of stabbing his brother and kicking his mother during the dispute, but those charges were dropped when his family failed to appear at court hearings.

Spadafora’s lawyer said his client was extremely intoxicated at the time but has since completed rehab and is staying sober.
