James Kirkland is Arrested For Assault and Jailed

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to the American-Statesman Staff, junior middleweight contender James Kirkland was arrested on an assault charge and is currently an inmate of the Travis County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail. Kirkland was charged with causing bodily injury to a family member.

Kirkland, inactive since early 2012, has been trying to break ties with everyone around him. Last year Kirkland filed a legal suits to break away from promoter Golden Boy Promotions and managers Cameron Dunkin/Michael Miller. Kirkland also broke ties with trainer Ann Wolfe

Not the first time Kirkland has been in trouble. In 2009 he was arrested on a firearm charge and released in September of 2010.

He was scheduled to face Saul Alvarez last September, but withdrew with a shoulder injury. Later he said he was unhappy with the money and willing to move forward if more money was on the table. Golden Boy gave the opportunity to Josesito Lopez.
