Prior arrest causing visa issues for Mark Hunt


Mark Hunt is scheduled to fight Junior Dos Santos, May 25th in Las Vegas, NV. The heavyweight, who lives in New Zealand, may now have put the bout in jeopardy:

Well thanks to a idiot friend of mine I did get arrested. Denied again at airport I'm never helping anymore dikhead mates. This is wat happens wen u have friends that are dikheads the last fukn time I help these mother fkn trouble makers.

He's still tweeting (see his timeline here), so that's a good sign.

With fight night just over two weeks away, Hunt says he was arrested in New Zealand thanks to some "dickhead" friends he was apparently trying to help. In addition, his visa was denied for his outbound flight to "Sin City," which means he's currently stranded overseas.

This sounds like he will get it cleared up from the info laid out here, but he will be getting in later than he wanted to. War Hunto

Jason Suttie is a good dude and a NZ kickboxing legend. The first Kiwi to ever fight in K1 if im not mistaken. If its the same thing I think you're talking about he got cleared of all them charges.So what happened with Hunto? Did he not declare a prior arrest on his American visa application or did he just get arrested recently and can't get out of Auckland?

^^^somebody said its because his passport expired and that his visa expired with it. He got a new passport but forgot about the visa. He goes to get the visa and then his old record pops up and puts a kink in it all.
