Don King Productions 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 “El Matador” Mayorga.
Don King Productions has a valid promotional contract granting the right of exclusive representation of Ricardo Mayorga and has advised Shine Fight Promotions accordingly.
Shine Fight Promotions’ conduct constitutes tortious interference with Don King Productions’ agreement with Ricardo Mayorga, and Don King Productions has requested they immediately cease and desist promoting Ricardo Mayorga at one of their events to avoid the need for legal action in this matter .
Typical shady stuff from King. If King was actually worried about attempting to prevent the event from happening why did he not push the issue sooner? Am I supposed to believe that DKP just learned about the event now? I find it very far fetched to think that I am more up to speed on what Don King's contracted fighters are doing than he is.
We'll have more on the contractual situation as it becomes available.
