Former British boxing champion accused of smuggling men ISIS fighters

A former British boxing champion accused of helping two men flee to Syria to fight with Islamic State (ISIS) will stand trial in June.

Anthony Small, 33, who won both the British and Commonwealth championships in 2009, appeared at the Old Bailey alongside four other men today.

Small allegedly helped Michael Coe, 33, and Simon Keeler 43, in their attempt to travel to Syria. Coe and Keeler were arrested at Dover on 30 November.

All three men are charged with preparation, and assisting others in preparation, of acts of terrorism, support of the organisation ISIS and conspiracy to possess false identity documents.
