50 Cent and boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa are going at it in court, with Gamboa seeking release from his contract with Fif’s SMS Promotions.
According to The Jasmine Brand, the 33-year-old wants the courts to void his contract with SMS Promotions, after the company filed for bankruptcy in May 2015… which Gamboa says is holding back his career.
He alleges that SMS has not coordinated three fights per year, as the contract stipulates.
However, SMS Promotions claims, via court documents, that they’ve secured him four fights and that he refused another fight SMS has facilitated. Furthermore, SMS says Gamboa has changed management teams and not been in contact with the company.
The legal battle is the latest for SMS Promotions, following boxer Ryan Martin’s similar claims and filing a complaint also wanting to be released from his contract.
