Pro boxer jailed after he's revealed as heroin and cocaine smuggling gang chief days before maiden TV fight




Undefeated professional boxer Anthony Leak has been jailed for over 11 years after being unmasked as a drugs kingpin, as originally reported by the Manchester Evening News.
Leak was due to fight his maiden televised bout on the undercard of Terry Flanagan vs Petr Petrov at the Manchester Arena in April last year.
But was caught by police as being the leader of a heroin and cocaine smuggling gang peddling almost three quarters of a million pounds worth of drugs.
The 27-year-old, from Openshaw, who had won his first three pro fights, was caged for 11 years and four months.
Six other men were jailed for a total of more than 32 years.
They were caught after police launched a wide ranging probe into the dealing of class A drugs across Greater Manchester, named Operation Segma.
Manchester Crown Court heard how between November 2016 and March last year, police discovered more than four kilograms of cocaine and other class A drugs including heroin following four warrants.
The drugs seized had an estimated street value of £726,000, and officers also found a gun and ammunition.
