Melvin Guillard Explains Pending Assault Charges


“That was an incident that happened when I first got to Jackson’s. To put it all out there, I’m fighting charges because I was jumped by a general manager and five security guards. My hands never touched anybody. There were five fans that I bought drinks for and when they saw me get jumped, they commenced to jump on the security. That’s as far as I’m going to get into this. I shouldn’t even be saying that much. It’s weird because that happened in early 2010 and now all of a sudden when I try to go back to Jackson’s, somebody leaks out that I’m fighting assault charges. I’m like, ‘Wow. It’s 2013.’ I don’t want to get into who voted to take me back and who didn’t. I did get to talk to coach Greg personally after the fact and he told me, ‘Look, right now we have some guys against it and it’s just not a good time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come back [eventually].’ Greg left it up to the team and I understand that.”

In a recent interview with ESPN, Melvin “The Young Assassin” Guillard explains the recent headlines about his pending court case for assault in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The lightweight fighter has recently left the Blackzilian camps in favor of Denver’s Grudge training center, an affiliate of team Jackson.
