Retired heavyweight Andrew Golota could be deported from the United States to his native Poland.
The Chicago Tribune reported Monday that the 44-year-old boxer's case is in court. His wife, Mariola Golota, says a decision is expected in September.
Golota was a title contender with bouts against Mike Tyson and Riddick Bowe. He also won a bronze medal at the 1988 Olympics.
Golota lives in Chicago a legal permanent resident of the US, but a criminal background check was triggered when he filed paperwork to become a US citizen. Golota pleaded guilty in two, separate Illinois cases over the past decade.
Mariola Golota says her husband is treated more harshly because of his celebrity. She says the proceedings are a ''big, black cloud'' over the family.
