Judge Prohibits Golden Boy From Promoting Nonito Donaire

Today, the Honorable Daniel Weinstein (ret.) enjoined Golden Boy Promotions from promoting Top Rank boxer Nonito Donaire for the duration of Top Rank’s exclusive promotional agreement with Donaire.  Golden Boy wrongfully signed Donaire to a four-year promotional agreement in the face of Top Rank’s agreement with the up-and-coming star.  The Arbitrator’s ruling paves the way for Top Rank to promote Donaire’s next bout and continued career, something the Las Vegas-based company had started arranging last month before Golden Boy signed Donaire.

Top Rank’s attorney, Daniel Petrocelli of O’Melveny & Myers LLP in Los Angeles stated, “We are pleased with Judge Weinstein’s carefully considered decision.  Top Rank hopes it can put the lawyers and legal fight behind it and return to doing what it does best — promoting the most talented boxers and the most entertaining boxing matches in the world today.”

In this EsNewsReporting video Bob Arum talks about Donaire’s move to Golden Boy Promotions. He says he’ll see him in court.

The four-part series is expected to be very compelling and shows each fighters unique journey leading up to the May 7th fight. It’s everything from Pacquiao’s meeting with  President Barack Obama, to Mosley’s  serenity of running the hills in Big Bear.
