VINNY MITCHELL has passed away tragically at just 31 years old. He died in a motorcycle accident in Dagenham on Monday. Two motorbikes were involved in the collision.

Vinny was a professional boxer himself, amassing a 12-1 record between 2007 and 2010. He was the brother of Kevin Mitchell, the former British champion and world title challenger.

Kevin said on social media, “There’s not many things I can say to say how heartbroken I am. I love you Vinny Mitchell I promise I’ll make sure your kids will know who there dad was. It kills me. See you again some day brother.”
