Default Willie "Sandman" Mitchell?

Anyone heard of this guy? I've been lead to believe he's from Ireland and 2-0 as a professional, though I can't find him on boxrec so I tend to believe he's white collar...

He's had 2 White collar fights in Belfast recently. I think he was doing MMA before that. Not seen him myself, however, his trainer said that he has had offers to turn over.

Kenny Egan stopped in a round back in 07, but he also said Mitchell was fighting way above his natural weight class. Never seen Mitchell in action though.
