Boxer Gets Five Years In Prison For Baseball Bat Beating

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A professional boxer from Connecticut has been sentenced to five years in prison for fracturing a man’s skull with a baseball bat last year in what police say was a fight over a woman.

Twenty-five-year-old Matt Remillard of Manchester appeared in state court Tuesday. He had pleaded no contest to first-degree assault in September.

Remillard held the NABF and NABO featherweight titles until losing his first fight as a professional last March to Mikey Garcia in Atlantic City, N.J. His record is 23-1.

State police say Jordan Evans suffered a fractured skull, eye socket and hand in the July 2010 attack in Marlborough. Doctors had to insert 100 stitches, more than two dozen screws and a plate into Evans’ head.
