Man Arrested in Alleged Brutal Assault on Nick Casal

by David P. Greisman

Police in New York have arrested a man they say attacked boxer Nick Casal, an attack that made headlines particularly after photographs were released that showed the severity of Casal’s injuries.

Michael P. Vicki, 30, of Niagara, is facing one count of first-degree assault, according to the Buffalo News. He is being held without bail.

Casal’s father said that his son was attacked after going to meet his ex-girlfriend at the home of the woman’s ex-boyfriend, according to the Associated Press. Casal was apparently attacked while walking away with her, struck at least 15 times by what several reports have said was a golf club.

Casal was split wide open “on the side and back of his head” and needed “more than 300 stitches and staples,” the Buffalo News reported.

Casal, 26, has fought most recently as a welterweight, his last appearance being a third-round technical knockout win in October on the non-televised undercard of the first fight between Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson. That victory brought his record to 22-4-1 with 17 knockouts and 1 no contest.

Any updates on this? Surely if you hit someone fifteen times in the head with a golf club you're trying to kill them.
