He killed Max Kellerman's brother Phone Post

LOS ANGELES -- James Butler, a boxer who fought under the nickname "The Harlem Hammer," pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and arson Monday in the 2004 death of a freelance sports writer.

Butler will be sentenced to 29 years, four months in prison by Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor on April 5, according to Deputy Public Defender Jack Keenan.

The 33-year-old fighter entered his plea as jury selection was set to begin in his trial for the killing of Sam Kellerman, who was the 29-year-old brother of boxing expert Max Kellerman, an ESPN Radio show host in New York.

"I think it's a fair resolution of the case," Keenan said. "He's always been sorry for what he did, and in the end he thought of Sam Kellerman as a friend."

Butler faced about 34 years in prison had he gone to trial and been convicted of murder, Keenan said. The original count of murder was dismissed against the former USBA super middleweight champion.

A motive for the killing has not been revealed by prosecutors, although it could come out at Butler's sentencing, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office.

Kellerman's body was found in his Hollywood apartment on Oct. 17, 2004, although authorities believe he had been killed five days earlier. He had been bludgeoned around the head about 30 times while sitting at his desktop computer, police said. A hammer was found near Kellerman's body, his car was missing and his apartment was set on fire, police said.

Sam Kellerman was a freelance writer who covered pro boxing. He and Butler were friends and the boxer had been staying at Kellerman's apartment since late September, police said.

Butler has a pro record of 20-5-0, with 12 wins by knockout. He is best known for sucker-punching opponent Richard Grant in November 2001 after losing a charity bout in New York.

Butler has been in custody since his arrest three days after the Kellerman killing.

Wtf?

Crazy shit right there.
Thanks fellas Phone Post

Reminded me of boxer James Butler, who hit his opponent after losing a decision. Pay close attention and you notice the blond-haired guy going to put his arm around Butler. 


God damn...

Woa! Thats a rough one. Never understood why fighters felt they had to do that. Professional Fighting is about defeating a man at his best.

They are actually pretty decent, surprising.

Much, much better than pro baseball MLB player Trevor Bauer

No it was from an old Cage Rage show from around 2005 or 2006.

It should have been an arrest.  You can ruin a person's career and perhaps whole life with that shit when they're not ready for it.

These things happen in MMA.

At least the guy looks angry, so it's some kind of emotional reaction maybe? I think the planned cheap shots ala Gamburyan and the "I do it for the troops" guy on TUF are worse.

when mayweather did it to ortiz - it was a similar situation and the example was valid and fair.

he capitalized on victor ortiz and earned a sucker punch 1 - 2 combo... punk ass couldn't even do it with 1 punch...

I remember watching Butler hit that guy in the ring live.  It was on ESPN's Friday night fights or something.  What the gif doesn't show is that the blond dude gets knocked clean the f*** out.  The angle in the gif actually looks like he was able to tolerate the shot better than the complete collapse it was.  Assualt.  I think Butler did time for it.  Sam Kellerman, took him into his home.  Tragic.

Agreed that Mayweather's was legal, I wouldn't go so far as to say fair though.  Complete dick move lacking any honor.  You'd think a fighter who considers himself the greatest would want to beat his opponent at his best, not by taking a cheap shot off an embrace.  "Always protect yourself" shouldn't be a license for fighters to take cheap shots.

I think all professional sports need to start taking out the garbage when it comes to these PsOS... I don't care who you are, or what your potential draw, if you want to kill people, or maybe just beat on yo baby mama when you're not "performing", do us all a favor and just piss off.

With Floyd I thought it was a total dick move at first, but when I went back and watched it, after that crazy headbutt Ortiz kept trying to hug him.  PBF accepted the first couple, but then was 'come on let's box'.  

 

After that Floyd boxed and Ortiz tried to continue the love-in, to his downfall.  How many times you want to let a guy high five, hug and apologize to you after he head butted you?

 

The ref was in his own little world after he called time in too, which was bananas.
