McNeely Pleads Guilty

BOSTON -- Heavyweight boxer Peter McNeeley has pleaded guilty in Boston Municipal Court to hitting a man in the face with a beer bottle at the Roxy nightclub in Boston.

Last year, McNeeley's trainer threw in the towel to stop the boxer's match with Mike Tyson after 89 seconds.

Monday, Judge Herbert Hershfang imposed a suspended six-month sentence on McNeeley, placed him on probation for one year and ordered him evaluated for an alcohol problem.

The altercation occurred after Hernandez talked to a woman standing next to McNeeley. A bartender had said McNeeley drank at least six beers.
