British light heavyweight Justyn Hugh was part of a group of half a dozen men who pleaded guilty earlier this month to charges of conspiracy to supply cocaine, according to Wales Online.

Prosecutors accused Hugh of heading the group.

The article said Hugh is facing a sentence of between 12 and 16 years behind bars. A sentencing hearing has not been held yet.

Hugh, 29, turned pro in 2008 and  went 11-2-1 with 4 knockouts. He captured the British Boxing Board of Control’s “Welsh Area” light heavyweight title in July 2012, according to BoxRec.

Hugh’s two losses came in his past two fights. His last appearance was in February 2013, when he dropped a referee’s decision in a four-round bout against Nathan King, who had a record of 12-18 (1 KO).
