British Board Backs Frank Warren in Smith Dispute
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

The British Boxing Board of Control have today decided that British Super-Featherweight Champion Stephen Smith will not be allowed to defend his title on any promotion other than that of his promoter Frank Warren, which is scheduled for Saturday 7th December at the Liverpool Echo Arena.
 
Earlier this month, Smith announced that he would participate in the defence of his title against Gary Sykes on Saturday 23rd November in Manchester on a show promoted by Eddie Hearn.
 
However, Smith and Hearn chose to ignore the fact that the BBBofC has already formally sanctioned the fight to take place at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday 7th December.
 
Robert Smith, the General Secretary of the BBBofC, today stated that until the Board has heard the dispute and made a decision Stephen Smith “will not be able to appoint another person to act on his behalf as manager nor will he be able to negotiate with others on his own behalf. It follows that, prior thereto, the Board will not allow him to participate in a contest arranged by a third party.”
 
Should any party wish to engage the services of Stephen Smith, they should contact Frank Warren.Tags: Frank Warren , Stephen Smith

Frank Warren should take out an injunction to prevent Smith from performing on the Matchroom bill. He cannot apply for a specific performance injunction as it is a contract for personal services.

@Wesker...agreed. Warren can be a total dicksplash but he gave the guy a legally binding contract, which Smith duly signed, and Warren is well within his rights to expect that agreement to be honoured. Just because he is unpopular with many fans and fighters does not mean he does not have rig...

[QUOTE=Wesker115]As much as Warren is a total prick, you can't just do what you like and break contract because you feel like it. Smith was poorly advised and only has himself to blame.[/QUOTE] Surely he can blame the person who advised him too ;)

As much as Warren is a total prick, you can't just do what you like and break contract because you feel like it. Smith was poorly advised and only has himself to blame.
