Statement from Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel Re: Top Rank, Inc. v. Alan Haymon et al

NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On behalf of our clients Alan Haymon, Haymon Boxing LLC, Haymon Sports, LLC and Haymon Holdings LLC:

The lawsuit filed today by Bob Arum and Top Rank is entirely without merit and is a cynical attempt by boxing's old guard to use the courts to undermine the accessibility, credibility and exposure of boxing that the sport so desperately needs. The Premier Boxing Champions series makes boxing free again, by bringing championship boxing to free TV, with a fighter-first promise and a commitment to the fans to restore boxing to the luster of its heyday. The continued success of this effort will far outlast this baseless lawsuit.

All questions should be directed to Barry H. Berke.
