Former world boxing champion Eamonn Magee allegedly warned his ex-partner she would never sleep again during menacing phone calls, the High Court has been told.
Magee (38) faces charges of harassment and making threats to kill both Maria Magill and his ex-wife Mary Magee.
The former WBU welterweight title holder, of Eskdale Gardens, Belfast, is also accused of burglary and theft of a purse containing £60 from Mrs Magee's home.
He was refused bail, despite a judge being told he is scheduled to be in the corner at upcoming British and European title fights.
Crown counsel Kate McKay said the boxer-turned-trainer, known as The Terminator during a professional career spanning 33 contests, was accused of going to his former wife's home on Upper Springfield Road last Christmas Eve and taking her purse.
It was alleged that he also threatened to kill her and kicked a car outside, for which he faces a further charge of criminal damage.
Despite attempts to arrest him at various locations he was not detained until earlier this month, the court heard.
Mrs McKay said by then further allegations had been made by Ms Magill, with whom Magee was described as having a “somewhat overlapping” relationship.
It was claimed she received texts from him on dates during March and then a number of phone calls.
In a further telephone conversation Magee threatened to murder her, it was alleged.
Declan Quinn, defending, argued that both women were “ill-motivated” for different reasons towards Magee.
Mr Quinn described the accused as a positive role model for youths in Belfast through his boxing exploits and now training work at Breen's Gym in the city.
“His remand is going to impact on other young persons in terms of his good guidance and tutelage,” he said.
Bail was refused, however, due to the risk of re-offending.
