Daniel Dubois Settles Lawsuit Against Don King
Daniel Dubois has been paid.
Dubois and his legal team’s lawsuit against Don King Productions has reportedly been settled and dismissed with prejudice in a Broward County, Florida courtroom, according to Boxing Scene. The suit was settled out of court.
“Plaintiff Daniel Dubois, by and through his undersigned counsel, hereby files this Notice of Voluntary Dismissal with Prejudice in this matter,” Leon Margules, Dubois’ hired attorney for the case, stated in a filed letter with the 17th Judicial Circuit of the Circuit Court for Broward County, which was obtained by Boxing Scene.
The case was filed on August 1. It alleged that Dubois had not been paid between $463,274.32 and $938,274.32 from his June 11 fight against Trevor Bryan – which he won by knockout.
King had the rights for the fight with a winning purse bid of $3,116,001 on March 21. He had outbid Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions.
Dubois was supposed to get 45 percent of the winning bid, which totals to $1,402,200.45 and three percent of his purse in sanctioning fees, which is $42, 066.01, Boxing Scene previously reported.
The remaining amount that was owed to Dubois has reportedly been “satisfied” and no longer needed to be tried in court.
Dubois (18-1, 17 KOs) now waits for his first defense of his secondary WBA heavyweight title, which could land in the fall. Dubois has said that he wants a fight with Dillian Whyte.
