Mosley: PPV is On, I'll Prosecute Don King For Fraud!

LOS ANGELES – Future Hall-of-Fame boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosley said today that “Mosley Vs. Mayorga 2,” his much-anticipated bout against Ricardo Mayorga August 29 at the Forum, will take place despite a lawsuit filed against him by promoter Don King.

Mosley’s legal team is disputing the lawsuit filed naming Mosley, Mayorga, Sugar Shane Mosley Promotions and GoBox Promotions as defendants and King's request for an emergency order to prevent “Mosley Vs. Mayorga 2”.

“Mosley Vs Mayorga 2 is going to happen,” said Mosley.  “There is no way we are going to let Don King destroy everything we have worked for just to line his pockets with a frivolous lawsuit.” 

Mosley’s promotion company, GoBox Promotions, will broadcast Mosley Vs. Mayorga 2 live at 10 pm ET/7 pm PT on Pay-Per-View in the USA and Canada via all cable and satellite providers for under $50. In doing so, Mosley is making the fight affordable for the majority of boxing fans, while still being able to recoup his million-dollar investment. Tickets start at $35 and go on sale to the general public at Noon on Tuesday, August 4, 2015. Tickets are available through The Forum box office and Ticketmaster.com.

King claims Mayorga is under a promotional agreement the boxer signed in 2009 and reaffirmed in 2014 with a Memorandum of Understanding.  But a letter issued to King by Mosley's legal team states “there is doubt to the legitimacy of Mayorga's signatures on the provided King documents” and “that Mayorga himself did not sign the promotional contracts.” Additionally, the letter states that the Notary Public who stood witness to the signatures is also being called into question due to the fact her license was expired on the date the contract was supposedly signed, and the number on her notary seal for the contract in question belongs to someone else.

“I think Don has been getting away with raping people so long that he got cocky and sloppy and sent over some forgery and fraud that was easily discovered,” said Mosley. “I think it’s ironic that a fighter not even signed with him to put him away. Fraud is a crime and I plan to prosecute Don to the fullest extent for this.  Luckily for me his reputation precedes him so fighting this is an uphill battle for him.

Everyone's bashing on Don King, but he's looking pretty frail these days. Likely his even more parasitic son Carl is the one behind this. Best case scenario is Mosely/Mayorga gets cancelled and Mosely/Mayorga end up suing Don King for even…
