Alvarez vs Hatton Bout in Jeopardy Over Court Order?
By Jhonny Gonzalez
According to multiple reports in Mexico, an order from a United States judge could prevent the March 5 bout between Mexico's Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Matthew Hatton of England, which is scheduled to happen in Anaheim, California for the vacant WBC junior middleweight title.
As part of an ongoing lawsuit in Miami, Florida, promoter Tuto Zabala Jr. and his company All-Star Boxing have asked a judge for an injunction to prevent Alvarez from fighting until the lawsuit is resolved. Zabala sued Alvarez and Golden Boy Promotions with breach of contract claims on Alvarez and tortious interference claims on Golden Boy.
Zabala claims to have had a valid promotional contract with Alvarez, when the unbeaten Mexican boxer signed his deal with Golden Boy. In his papers, Zabala states that Alvarez signed a four year deal in September 2008. Alvarez signed with Golden Boy in January 2010
"Our lawyers have already requested the court order," Zabala said.
