Mayorga is trying to leave Don King

Don King has become aware that an entity known as Shine Fight Promotions recently announced their intention to present a match showcasing former three-time world champion Ricardo Mayorga.

King has a valid promotional contract granting the right of exclusive representation of Mayorga and has advised Shine Fight Promotions accordingly. Shine Fight Promotions conduct constitutes tortuous interference with King’s agreement with Mayorga, and King has requested they immediately cease and desist promoting him at one of their events to avoid the need for legal action in this matter.

Heavyweight match rescheduled

The Eddie Chambers vs. Tony Thompson heavyweight match that was originally scheduled for October 28, has been pushed back to December 17 on the undercard of the Andre Ward vs. Carl Froch Super Six Finals, due to a back injury suffered by Chambers. This event will be in Atlantic City, N.J. and will air on Showtime pay-per-view.

Mayweather not guilty on one charge, but two more court dates to come

There is good and bad news for Floyd Mayweather. The good news is that he been acquitted of misdemeanor harassment chargers alleging he threatened the lives of two homeowner association security guards.  His attorney argued that the encounter between Mayweather and the guards was a “trivial matter,” and the only reason why it even went to court was because Mayweather is a celebrity.

A Las Vegas Justice of the Peace ruled that the guards, who were armed with handguns at the time, where not in any danger by Mayweather’s actions, which were all verbal. 

The bad news is that Mayweather still has two more court dates coming up.  One, a felony charge involving a criminal case alleging an assault on the mother of his children, which will be heard in court on December 21.  The other case is scheduled to stand trial on November 4.  In that case Mayweather is being charged with misdemeanor battery, where it is alleged that he poked another homeowner association security guard in the face during a separate argument over parking tickets. 


Khan vs. Peterson in D.C. and Bradley on Pacquiao undercard

A very exciting match is about to take place between Amir Khan vs. Lamont Peterson in Washington, D.C. on December 10. Khan believes that he is ready and is preparing hard for this fight. He says that this will not be an easy fight, acknowledging that Peterson could be his most formidable opponent to date. 

And finally, Timothy Bradley, who recently signed with Top Rank Inc., will be fighting on the under card of the Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez bout coming up on November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  This will all be televised on HBO pay-per-view.
