Flint, Michigan prosecutor David Leyton has charged Artis Jaquel Mack with assault for allegedly punching James Ali Bashir (known as Bashir Ali) at the weigh-in for a boxing match between Claressa Shields and Ivana Habazin. Mack is Shields' brother and Ali was Habazin's trainer. Ali was arguing with Shields' sister about access to a commission scale shortly before he was attacked. Mack is charged with one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm. The charge carries a possible sentence of ten years in prison, and it has been reported that Mack was on parole from a prior crime, meaning there could be additional jail time for a parole violation. Ali had to undergo at least one and possibly two surgeries with a broken bone in his face. The Shields-Habazin fight was cancelled. According to a Genesee County press release, Mack was observed running from the weigh-in by a police officer who noticed Mack fit the description of a person descrbied on police radio reports of the assault. The officer followed Mack and arrested him shortly afterwards.
