US court dismisses class suit over Pacquiao-Mayweather fight

Sep 07, 2017 - 1:36 PM

The judge says that while court is sympathetic to the fact that many boxing fans felt deceived by the statements and omissions made by the fight’s participants and promoters the proper remedy for such unscrupulous behavior when it implicates the core of athletic competition is not a legal one

DISMISSED. Citing earlier court decisions, the judge ruled that a ticket to see a sporting event gives the purchaser “nothing more than a revocable license” to view whatever transpires at the ticketed event, regardless of prior promises or representations about the performance.
