winner Paddy Doherty is facing jail over a bare knuckle fight.
The My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star was left bloodied and bruised with part of his ear hanging off after he took on two brothers in the street brawl.
The action was filmed and put on Youtube, showing a blood-spattered Doherty, 52, grunting “like a bull’’ and holding up his fists to protect himself.
At Manchester Crown Court, Doherty, from Salford, was due to stand trial with Johnny and Dougie Joyce but he admitted affray.
Johnny Joyce, 21, admitted affray while brother Dougie, 23, admitted using threatening behaviour.
Johnny had been wearing a ring covering two of his fingers and that Doherty was injured to the left eye, requiring stitches, the court was told.
Douglas Joyce recorded the brawl on his mobile phone, which was later seized by police.
The court also heard that Johnny Joyce got the better of Doherty in the fight and the top of the BB star’s ear was bitten almost completely off, and later sewn back on.
Police have linked last June’s fight to a revenge gangland hit on the home of Johnny Joyce’s mother, for which two men were jailed last month.
Doherty and the Joyce brothers will be sentenced in the New Year and were remanded on bail.
