She has now lost her job as a fitness instructor at a top gym
She said: “I’m being made out to look like a complete thug, which I’m not.
“I’m hard working, I’m a good mum and now because of the court case I’ve lost my job, my boxing prospects are wrecked.
“I’ve been threatened and bombarded by abusive messaged and my family is living in fear. It is a nightmare.”
The boxer, who has previously appeared with her daughter in a Sky TV programme Diet Crazy Mums, was sentenced in September last year at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court.

Tiffany Schofield said she reassured her daughter that Binch would be sent to jail
“There was a confrontation, I have to accept it but I’m not the thug people are making me out to be. All you have to do now is touch, spit, brush against someone and that is deemed assault.”
Since then Jayde, who also has an 18-month-old son and seven-year-old daughter, has suffered a torrent of abuse on social media and malicious texts.
She lives at home with Kayshia - a model hopeful now aged 13 - and said she now “fears for my life” and can’t sleep at night.

Kiesha's mum Tiffany, 33, also from Sutton-in-Ashfiled said Binch had “got away” with the attack that had left her daughter afraid to leave the house.
She said: “Kiesha had blood all over her face and was bruised on her head and body.
"Jayde fractured Kiesha's nose, she had a bruised and blood shot eye which took a long time to heal.
“She had scratches over her body and bruises on her back and arms where she had been kicked.
“I was livid. I wanted to do the same to her that she'd done to Kiesha but common sense kicked in. I kept saying to her 'she'll definitely get prison time for this'.
“When she was given the fine and no jail sentence, I couldn't believe it. How is that justice for attacking a minor?"
