“He was trying to break up the fight,” said Tony Mujoovic, 35, the victim’s uncle, told the New York Times. “They were drinking. That’s a big part of it, I think.”

After the argument, an individual then got into a dark SUV and plowed into the crowd. The regular at the bar, then fled the scene.

Kolenovic was not paying attention, as he had his back to the vehicle when he was struck, according to the authorities, before being thrown-head first into a tree. A short-time after being hit, he was pronounced dead at St. Barnabes Hospital.

“We sat around reviewing what the security camera got,” said Al Kolenovic, a cousin, said to the newspaper. “You see Kemal sitting outside, wanting to leave. The poor guy’s got his hands in his pockets, with his back to the car. He didn’t know what hit him.”

In his boxing career, the Brooklyn, New York native went 10-6-2. He received five of his wins by knockout and was knocked out twice in his losses.

He won his last fight, as he defeated Ronny Glover on December 15th, 2006. He won by a TKO at the Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point.

The win over Glove snapped a three-fight losing streak. From March 14th, 2000 through January 27th, 2001, he had won four straight fights, defeating Walter Brown, Glenn Irizarry, Kevin Carter, David Walker.
