Former NABF and WBO NABO featherweight champion Matt Remillard could potentially face five-years in prison after pleading no contest to beating a man with a baseball bat in Connecticut in July, 2010.
The 25-year-old featherweight from Manchester entered the plea to first-degree assault on Tuesday at Hartford Superior Court, Hartford, Connecticut and will be sentenced on November 29.
According to State police Remillard battered Jordan Evans with a baseball bat in July 2010 in Marlborough during a fight over a woman both men had dated. Three other people were also arrested.
Local newspaper The Hartford Courant reported that Evans suffered a fractured skull, eye socket and hand.
Prior to succumbing to a 10th round retirement loss to Miguel Garcia for his two regional titles on March 26 Remillard was a highly ranked world title prospect with an unbeaten record of 23 straight wins, 13 via tko or knockout.
