Lightweight Contender Kevin Mitchell Arrested, Released On Bail - Accused Of Cocaine Possession And Of Running Cannabis Farm

By James Slater: In shocking news, it has been reported how once-beaten, highly ranked British lightweight star Kevin Mitchell has been arrested, and since released on bail, due to being accused of possessing cocaine and of running a cannabis farm at his home in London.

U.K tabloid The Sun broke the story of how Mitchell, along with his mother, was arrested at the family home on the drug allegations. Since then numerous internet web sites related to boxing have picked up the story. Promoter Frank Warren, via his promotional group, has released the following statement:

“Kevin Mitchell has been arrested and released on police bail, but has not been charged. Kevin Mitchell denies all charges, but has been asked to report back to Dagenham Police Station in June. His fight with John Murray is still due to take place in the summer, and a date will be announced shortly.”

As big a fight as the Murray battle is, and as exciting a deal as it promises to be, boxing may be the last thing on Mitchell’s mind right now. Looked at as a clean-cut kid, this news has come as a huge surprise to his many fans. It is to be hoped the whole mess can be sorted out as soon as possible.

26-year-old Mitchell is currently 31-1(23). He is a former British and Commonwealth champion and is best known for his brilliant decision victory over Colombian banger Breidis Prescott.
