Commonwealth Games medal-winning boxer Stephen Lavelle is expected to contest his assault charges in a Gold Coast court later this year.
The former Scottish athlete, who now lives in Victoria, appeared in Southport Magistrates Court on Tuesday after being charged with assaulting a man and woman, both 18, on a nightclub dancefloor during the Commonwealth Games in April.
A two-day trial will begin on October 8 for Lavelle, who was a spectator at the Gold Coast Games after winning a bronze medal in Glasgow four years earlier.
Lavelle is accused of getting into an argument with the two teenagers on the dance floor of the Surfers Paradise club SinCity at about 3am.
Police allege the woman was punched in the face and a glass thrown at the man struck him in the face, causing a laceration that required treatment at Gold Coast University Hospital.
Retired Jamaican sprint great Usain Bolt was coincidentally a guest DJ at the same venue that night, however he was not involved in the incident.
