Vinny Mitchell recorded a 10th straight victory to maintain his 100 per cent professional record after overcoming Sheffield Daniel Thorpe

Vinny Mitchell maintained his 100 per cent professional record with a 10th straight victory on Frank Warren's charity show at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on Friday.

Mitchell outpointed Sheffield's 112-fight veteran campaigner Daniel Thorpe on the sell-out show, which raised money for the DebRA charity.

Watched by his brother Kevin, the British super-featherwieght champion, the younger Mitchell produced a series of solid shots to clinch a deserved points victory.

The fight represented the super-featherweight's first ring appearance since the Mitchell brothers joined East London father-and-son training duo Jimmy and Mark Tibbs.

The brothers had previously planned to move to Los Angeles, but will now remain in Britain.

Mitchell left no doubt about his superiority over Thorpe.

The 22-year-old Mitchell shook the Sheffield fighter with solid hooks, but the experience gained by Thorpe in his clashes against many of the top names in British boxing allowed him to survive the six rounds.

Mitchell is now set for an appearance on the undercard at promoter Warren's York Hall show on October 9, which is topped by Nathan Cleverly British and Commonwealth light-heavyweight title clash with former Repton amateur Courtney Fry.
