On September 6, 2011, Fernando Guererro, a professional boxer with a "professional record" of "twenty-one wins and one loss," filed a complaint against Prize Fight Promotions, LLC arising from a 2007 "promotional agreement whereby Prize Fight became Mr. Guerrero’s exclusive boxing promoter."
The crux of the complaint is the allegation that "[o]n multiple occasions, the last of which occurred in Mr. Guerrero’s most recent fight, Prize Fight knowingly failed to provide Mr. Guerrero with the required disclosures and directly violated the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act by accepting payment for bouts in which Mr. Guerrero participated."
Guerrero seeks a declaratory judgment that "the Agreement has been materially breached by Prize Fight [based on the alleged violation of the Ali Act] and properly terminated without any further obligation on Mr. Guerrero’s part."
Guerrero also asserts a direct claim for breach of the Ali Act as well as claims for breach of contract.
Essentially, at 10,000 feet, Guerrero is seeking a judicial determination that he can get out of his exclusive promotional deal with Prize Fight and he is using the alleged Ali Act violations as the basis (for all of his claims) to do so.
