A KNIFE thug has been jailed for almost seven years after repeatedly stabbing an amateur boxer on the bottom.
David Arthur attack-ed Douglas Ferguson amid claims the victim had left the 29-year-old's partner with a "spectacular" black eye.
Arthur pleaded guilty at the High Court in Glasgow to assaulting Mr Ferguson to the danger of his life.
Lord Turnbull locked him up for a total of six years and eight months after hearing how Arthur confronted Mr Ferguson at his home in Mossvale Street, Paisley last August 9.
Arthur was later charged and bailed by a sheriff - then ignored an order not to go near Mr Ferguson, by turn-ing up at his home on December 28 with an axe.
