Ricky Burns to appeal after losing court case to Frank Warren

Having successfully defended a claim of nearly £2m by Frank Warren last month, Ricky Burns was disappointed to have been ordered to pay an element of costs towards Warren in relation to the far smaller award in Warren’s favour for unpaid management commission. Burns will be appealing the decision to the Court of Appeal.

Ricky Burns loses costly (£370K +) court case against Frank Warren

The Court today confirmed that boxing promoter Frank Warren won his claim against boxer Ricky Burns. The Judge found that there was no basis for Burns to walk away from his promotional and management agreements.

Promoter Eddie Hearn advised Burns that Warren had no claim at all, saying last March, “we’ve been provided with a letter from Burns as confirmation that he has terminated his agreement… We have advice from our lawyers and I’m very comfortable. There is no contract now.”

Promoters dominating the news – a sign of the times or something that needs to be nipped in the bud?

Boxing in the headlines sure has changed over the recent years. One may say that  the innovative nature of the internet permits more news to reach an audience faster and more wider than ever. True. But what good is it truly for boxing fans when the men in suits want in on a piece of the action and seem like they want to take centre stage by disclosing the going on’s of the business side of boxing? It may fire up online debates but recently it has felt like that the sport is more about the promoters and less about the people who give every fibre of their being in the ring, both in the gym and outside.
