Image of MarijuanaBOXING: The career of your average professional sportsman doesn’t last too long so it’s understandable why they would want to explore other money-making avenues for when they retire.

Take European lightweight title challenger Kevin Mitchell for example. It was revealed this week that he’s been exploring outside business opportunities with his mum after the pair were busted by cops for alleged possession of cocaine and running a cannabis farm.

“These are serious allegations but when we have heard from Mitchell’s solicitor, the Board will decide what to do,” said a British Boxing Board official.

“Can we take away a fighter’s licence? Once we know the full facts, it is possible but everyone is innocent until proven guilty.”

Mitchell was too busy ‘blazing shit up’ for comment.
