Bomac Receives 20-month Suspended Sentence

Brian McIntyre, otherwise known as “Bomac,” has been released from a Manchester, England jail after previously being detained when a loaded gun was found in his suitcase at Manchester Airport.

McIntyre spent the past five weeks in custody while being charged with possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition with a license. His release follows a guilty plea to the two charges, where he received a 20-month suspended sentence.

McIntyre was on his way back to the United States after guiding contender Chris Eubank Jr. to a dominant 10th-round knockout victory over Liam Smith in a rematch on Sept. 2 at AO Arena in Manchester. Smith previously defeated Eubank Jr. via a surprise 4th-round knockout in January 2023, which led Eubank to seek the guidance of McIntyre.

Numerous character witnesses appeared in person on McIntyre’s behalf at the hearing, including undisputed welterweight champion Terence Crawford. According to British Journalist, Oliver Mcmanus, McIntyre’s release was inevitable given the request for his hearing to be conducted in person.

McIntyre, 53, is a leading candidate for trainer of the year honors, given the dominant performances from Terence Crawford and Chris Eubank Jr. under his direction. With McIntyre free to return to the United States, he will be able to work with Terence Crawford once again, as the duo prepare for the pending Crawford vs Spence Jr. rematch.
