Marcus Browne Takes a Plea in Domestic Violence Case

According to the Staten Island Advance, light heavyweight contender Marcus Browne, 28-years-old, appeared in court on Wednesday and plead guilty to criminal contempt in the second degree after allegedly attacking his girlfriend last year.

The undefeated boxer was sentenced to 26 sessions of the batterer’s intervention program and a conditional discharge with a full order of protection, said a spokesman for the district attorney’s office to the paper.

Browne won the WBA interim light heavyweight title on Jan. 19 in Las Vegas, with a twelve round decision win over Badou Jack on the Manny Pacquiao vs. Adiren Broner undercard at the MGM Grand.

It was alleged in the criminal case that Browne and the mother of his daughter got into an argument before he allegedly choked her during an incident at her Park Hill Avenue home on the morning of Sept. 27, 2018.

Prosecutors claimed that Browne, who had an order of protection to stay away from the victim, grabbed the phone from her hand when she was calling for help. He was also accused of kicking a hole through the front door.

Browne had been charged with two counts of criminal contempt, criminal obstruction of breathing and circulation, criminal mischief and harassment.

The boxer had previously pleaded guilty in two other domestic disputes involving the same woman.

On March 30, 2018, he allegedly violated an order of protection when he showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s Park Hill Avenue apartment at around 9 p.m. and demanded she let him in.

Authorities allege the boxer was caught on surveillance video striking the door bell and peep hole with an unknown object.

The boxer missed out on the WBO light heavyweight title with Sergey Kovalev last June after the fight was canceled over Browne’s arrests. He was replaced by Eleider Alvarez, who knocked Kovalev out in an upset.
