British light heavyweight Justyn Hugh has been sentenced to 11 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to supply cocaine, according to British tabloid The Daily Mirror .

Prosecutors accused Hugh of heading the group. Five other men received sentences ranging from four years and eight months, to eight years and four months.

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).
