Last Friday, a London court sentenced Boris Becker to two and a half years in prison for various crimes of bankruptcy. The tennis legend will indeed have to sell half of it. In Germany, the subject is now controversial, in particular Lilly Becker, the 54-year-old ex, who spoke. In an interview with RTL, she said their 12-year-old son Amadeus didn’t know anything about the latest developments. The situation is also very difficult for the family.

Becker doesn’t necessarily have the best relationship with comedian Oliver Pocher, the two have often verbally shared against each other in the past. Now, however, Pocher is saying on his Instagram Story that he can fully relate to the Becker family’s situation and reveals that from his perspective, a completely different celebrity deserves tougher judgment.

Boris Becker in prison: Pocher does not understand the excitement

There is no satisfaction there. You don’t say, Great, now he’s got what he deserves,” Pocher said in light of the verdict that the multiple Wimbledon winner hid part of his fortune. Since the comedian is a father himself, he can apparently even make it clear to the people involved:

“I can sympathize with all the kids, especially the little ones, because it’s just a totally uncomfortable situation.”

During the proceedings in Britain, however, it had already become clear that Becker could not count on a light sentence, according to Pocher. Therefore, the prison sentence is a logical consequence for him. “On the other hand, there is nothing unusual. This is how the laws are. After the points, it was actually relatively clear to see what it was going to look like. So it amazes me that many were expecting a verdict that would go along the lines of acquittal or probation.“, soberly summarizes the 44-year-old man on social networks.

Finally, Pocher classifies the Becker judgment in relation to a completely different case – that of Christoph Metzelder, sentenced to ten months in prison suspended in 2021 for possession and distribution of child pornography, unlike the former tennis professional, it is ie not in jail got to. The comedian says: “In the end, I would have found a harsher judgment appropriate for Christoph Metzelder. I think what happened there is much worse and more dramatic than what Boris Becker did. The laws are what they are, you can’t choose that.”
