Ibiza 'gang rape' : Professional Brits boxers who trianed with Ricky Hatton have been arrested

THE two brothers accused of raping a British holidaymaker in Ibiza are professional boxers who were trained by former world champion Ricky Hatton.

Brits Paul Upton and his younger brother Sonny were both arrested in the Ibiza party resort of San Antonio on Thursday.

A third man - another professional boxer named as 21-year-old Bradley Smith from St Ives, Cambridgeshire - was released on bail pending an ongoing criminal probe along with a fourth Brit.

The Upton brothers, who were born in London and grew up in West Ham, only parted company with Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton in September 2016.


Paul, who is known as Pauly and turned 30 on July 12, took the Boxing Union of Ireland super welterweight title in April 2016 while he was still with Ricky Hatton.

He was defeated for the first time in his five-year pro career last month by fellow Brit Ted Cheesman in a WBA international super-welterweight clash.

Younger brother Sonny, who turned 29 last month, has had 15 professional fights.

The pair had posted several pictures on social media showing them enjoying themselves at popular party spots including the Ocean Club in San Antonio.

The 29-year-old Brit who claims she was gang-raped told police she was force-fed two pills after meeting up with the men at popular San Antonio bar Linekers.

She alleges she was then taken back to apartments and made to have sex while she was held down.


The incident allegedly happened in the early hours of Thursday morning at the Marian Apartments in San Antonio and the four men were arrested later the same day.

A source said: “Her friends left saying they’d be back but in the meantime the woman began to feel ill and the men offered to accompany her back to her hotel.

“She says that after leaving the bar they headed for the beach and she was given two pills by one of the men while another went for a swim.”

Footage has emerged of the brothers following their arrest in Spain

A court official confirmed two of the four men arrested had been remanded in custody and the other two had been released after questioning.

The conditions attached to their release have not been made clear.

None have been formally charged with any crime under Spanish law as is customary in Spain where suspects are only normally charged shortly before trial.

It comes as two Charlton footballers are still under investigation over the alleged Ibiza hotel rape of a 19-year-old British holidaymaker last month.


Striker Reeco Hackett-Fairchild, 20, was allowed to leave the island 10 days ago after having his passport taken away for nearly a month.

Non-footballer Olusola Odejayi, a 26-year-old Brit who also had his passport taken away, has also had his travel ban lifted.

They are now on the same bail conditions as another Charlton striker Karlan Ahearne-Grant.

All must sign on a twice-a-month at the Spanish Embassy in London.
