After biting a guy in the ear and causing him injury in a pub, a professional boxer from Harrogate was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for the attack. Following a trial at York Crown Court last week, the defendant, middleweight fighter Guy Kitching, 21, who had never been defeated, was convicted guilty of wounding with intent.

On December 27, 2021, the incident took place during a fight that broke out at The Foundry Project, which was located in The Ginnel. A doorman who worked at the bar and testified that it was a busy night during the Christmas season and that the environment was “quite chaotic”.

He stated that he broke up a fight and that one of the participants afterwards informed him that he had been bitten. During the cross-examination by the prosecution Helen Towers, Kitching, who is a resident of Hillbank View, Harrogate, admitted that he and the named victim had come across each other at the top of the steps inside the bar and that an altercation had broken out, but he denied biting him. Kitching lives in Harrogate.

After a fight broke out, the door workers stepped in to break it up. It was reported that at one point in time, Kitching and the victim were “wrestling” on a table. Ms. Towers informed the jury that the victim sustained a major injury to his ear as a result of the incident. The “background” of the event was thought to have some significance.

Kitching won his first fight as a professional boxer earlier this year, and his trainer said it was “perhaps the best debut performance I have ever seen” from a fighter in their first fight. His professional record sits at two wins from his most recent two matches at this point.

Prior to obtaining his professional licence and signing with VIP Promotions, the former student of Rossett School had a successful amateur career during which he trained at the ABC boxing club in Leeds. He also attended Rossett School.
