Federal Judge Kathleen Williams denied the injunction request of famous boxing promoter Don King which means that the rematch between Sugar Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga will take place on schedule.
King claimed the rematch fight could not go on because Mayorga is still under contract but the fighter claimed that the contract is a fraud due to his signature being forged by King.
The judge said that participating in the fight would not damage the career of 41-year-old Mayorga because his career is nearing its end.READ MORE: Clevelander Suing Miami Beach Because City Has ‘Declared War’ On Entertainment District With Last Call Rollback
“The undisputed evidence is that Mayorga is not ranked, that he is not at the peak of his physical capabilities and that whether he will participate in any future bouts is purely speculative,” Williams said in court.
Mosley, 43, came out of retirement for the rematch with Mayorga.
The bout between Mosley and Mayorga is set for Saturday night at the Los Angeles Forum.MORE NEWS: Global Chip Shortage Could Soon Put Squeeze On South Florida Car Dealerships
