Boxing Promoter Sentenced to 37 Months For Fixing Fights

Boxing promoter Robert Mitchell received a 37-month sentence for his conviction last November on conspiracy and sports bribery charges for fixing fights involving boxer Thomas Williams.  The three-year knock-out punch (I couldn't resist) came for fixing 11 fights, including a match with Richie Melito that was an undercard for an Evander Holyfield heavyweight title fight in Las Vegas in 2000.  While Mitchell's lawyer said, "I don't think he represents everything that is wrong with boxing," he certainly is not part of what is right about the sport. Williams, known as the "Top Dawg," was also convicted and sentenced to a 15-month term of imprisonment. An AP story here discusses the sentencing.
