Don King closes the gates for Shine Fights: Mayorga vs ThomasPosted on May 16, 2010, 07:29 AM by Anton Gurevich
Long-anticipated showdown between the Boxing legend Ricardo Mayorga and the UFC veteran Din Thomas has been officially cancelled, after the promotional guru Don King filed a successful injunction earlier this week, which was approved by the Broward County Circuit Court Judge Marc C. Gold.
DKP (Don King Productions) claimed that they have Mayorga under an exclusive contract, as that the fight again Thomas is a breach of agreement due to the distinction between boxing and MMA.
Shine Fights CEO Devin Price cancelled the show after long hours of confusion, claiming that the fight would go as planned. Middleweight contest between the PRIDE veteran Murilo "Ninja" Rua and David Heath was promoted for the main event, but only a few hours later, Shine Fights announcer Karyn Bryant revealed that the NC commission decided to cancel the entire event.
