EXCLUSIVE

Boxer James Kirkland -- a former WBO super welterweight champ -- was arrested in Austin, TX earlier this month in connection to a child support case ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've confirmed ... Kirkland was taken into custody by the Travis County Sheriff's Dept. on August 8th for contempt of court/non-payment. 

It's unclear how much Kirkland owes -- but according to reports, he made more than $1 MILLION for his May 2015 fight against Canelo Alvarez. He's also reportedly in early talks to fight Miguel Cotto later this year. 

Kirkland's bond was set at $15,160.25 -- which he paid. He has since been released from custody,
