Judge Refuses Shaw's Lawsuit to Stop Bradley-Casamayor

By Chris LaBate

According to Vegas Inc, a Nevada judge issued an order on Tuesday which refused a request that she cancel this Saturday's junior welterweight fight between Timothy Bradley and Joel Casamayor, which takes place on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Promoters Gary Shaw and Thompson Boxing, who used to co-handle Bradley, filed the lawsuit on October 20 in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas, against Top Rank, who now promote Bradley.

Shaw and Thompson sought a temporary restraining order to halt the fight, claiming that Top Rank had interfered with their representation of Bradley.

“Plaintiffs have not consented to Bradley entering into a promotional agreement with Top Rank. Plaintiff’s have not consented to Bradley’s participation in the Casamayor bout,” said the suit filed by Las Vegas attorney Harry Paul Marquis.

Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez, after a hearing Tuesday, refused to cancel the fight. She ruled it wouldn’t be right to do so because of a lack of evidence that Bradley had broken his contract with Gary Shaw and Thompson Boxing.

Shaw and Thompson have an ongoing suit against Bradley and manager Cameron Dunkin in Florida.

I don't necessarily agree with this lawsuit and rarely if ever does the ex-promoter win in these cases. But considering the matchup we're talking about, would've been one time I wish the judge ruled in favor of preventing the fight.
