All Star Boxing Move To Garnish Canelo's Wages From Chavez PPV

By Miguel Rivera

The attorneys for promoter Felix 'Tutico' Zabala of All Star Boxing have filed a motion to garnish the wages of  two-division world champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

Last June in a Miami court room, Canelo was cracked with a jury verdict which directed him to pay $8.5 million to former promoter Zabala.

For several years, there was an ongoing lawsuit between Zabala and Golden Boy Promotions/Canelo.

Zabala claimed that Canelo signed a four year promotional contract in 2008, but then violated that contract when he signed a promotional agreement with Golden Boy in 2011. The jury exonerated Golden Boy, but ordered Canelo to pay $8.5 million to Zabala - ruling that the Florida based promoter introduced Canelo to Golden Boy and helped jump start his career in the United States.

Of course Canelo vowed to appeal the jury's verdict and he filed two motions. One motion was to dismiss the verdict and other was for the court to order a new trial.

Both of those motions were denied a few weeks ago.

Zabala is now moving to claim his money from Canelo's upcoming HBO Pay-Per-View showdown with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., which takes place on May 6th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR WRIT OF GARNISHMENT AFTER JUDGMENT

Plaintiff, ALL STAR BOXING, INC., by and through undersigned counsel and pursuant to Fla. Stat. §77.03, hereby moves this Court for the issuance of four (4) Writs of Garnishment after Judgment, and in support thereof, states as follows:

Are they trying to or thinking of appealing the decision? If that's the case obviously he wouldn't pay yet.
