Ward is the consensus 2nd pound for pound fighter in the world, but has only fought twice in the last three years because of promotional issues with Dan Goosen.
Ward has lost every legal case and now Goosen is fed up and is suing Ward according to TMZ.
Dan Goossen just filed a defamation lawsuit against his prize fighter in L.A. Superior Court in response to the Ward’s suit last week. Ward, the #2 pound-for-pound boxer (behind Mayweather), sued Goosen … claiming he never handed over details on how much money Ward’s fights earned during a 9-year period.
Something called the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act … requires promoters to fork over financials in a timely manner.
Goossen says Ward’s suit is a smear campaign, intended to “assassinate” his good standing in the boxing community. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Goossen says the whole Ali Act allegation is a lie.
Goosen is suing for $10 Million. Don’t expect Ward in the ring any time soon.
