A man has been charged with the murder of another man who died after being attacked in a brawl at a boxing event.

Reagan Asbury, 19, from Pelsall, died from a neck wound on 14 October at Walsall Town Hall.

Tyrone Andrew, 21, of St Helen's Street, Derby, appeared before Birmingham Magistrates' Court earlier, charged with murder.

Mr Andrew was remanded in custody to appear before the city's crown court next week.

He was flown back from Madrid to Heathrow on 10 January after being held in Barcelona on a European Arrest Warrant.

"Large-scale disorder" broke out at the boxing event, which was hosting an IBF Youth Lightweight title fight between Luke Paddock and Myron Mills.

Mr Asbury played for Pelsall United Football Club. Friends have raised more than £11,000 in his memory.
