PROMISING Darling Downs boxer Damien Hooper is to fight an assault charge against him at a hearing before Toowoomba Magistrates Court.
Hooper, 23, is being held in custody on a parole suspension and was not in court for the brief mention of the matter.
Solicitor Divina DeLeon acting on behalf of the boxer's barrister asked for a hearing date.
The light heavyweight has not been not required to enter any pleas to the charges of assault occasioning bodily harm and contravening a domestic violence order.
He is on bail for both charges which arise from alleged incidents in Toowoomba on June 13.
Magistrate Damian Carroll set January 5 to hear the case which is expected to last one day.
