A LAWN bowls “bad boy” had his leg broken by a cage fighter.
Danny Denison, 56, had to pull out of this week’s world championships after a ruck at a hotel.
A friend said last night: “He got into some banter with an alleged cage fighter. He’s still got a smile on his face though.”
Police were called in the early hours of New Year’s Eve to the three-star Hotel Celebrity in Bournemouth, Dorset.
The ex-crown green champ — who is registered disabled after a car accident in 2015 — was taken to hospital with a broken leg, damaged ribs and a black eye.
His leg is now in plaster, forcing him to miss the ongoing world indoor tournament at Hopton-on-Sea, Norfolk.

Danny, from Torquay, Devon, said: “I’m disappointed as I’m trying to get back in the top 16.
I don’t know who the attacker was. It’s going to court.”
A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of GBH and was released pending inquiries.
Danny got community service for assaulting two women in a Chinese takeaway in 2006.
He was also jailed in 2007 for fraud and perjury and later banned in 2015 after trashing his world tour accommodation.
