Golden Boy: Legal Suit Won't Prevent Alvarez-Hatton

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Golden Boy Promotions have rejected claims that an ongoing legal battle with All Star Boxing will prevent next Saturday's fight between Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and English boxer Matthew Hatton, who clash for the vacant junior middleweight title of the World Boxing Council at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. All Star Boxing sued Golden Boy for contract interference. Félix 'Tutito' Zabala, owner of All Star Boxing, is claiming that he has a valid promotional contract over Alvarez, who signed with Golden Boy last January. 

"We have no position, the case is in the hands of our lawyers, there is no concern," Sal Rodriguez was told by Ramiro Gonzalez, matchmaker for Golden Boy. "What we have said is that nobody can stop the fight."

Zabala is claiming to have a few years remaining on his deal with Alvarez. He doesn't want the fight to go forward in the event of a loss.

"We think the fight with Hatton is a risk. If he gets beat, our entire struggle will be a waste because the fighter is no longer not worth the same," Zabala said.

it shouldn't stop the fight, but hopefully it will stop the gift of the WBC 154 belt. If Oscar wants his hyped up kid to win a belt, they should at least fight someone in the rankings.
