Mayorga vs Thomas Fight OFF

In the battle between boxing and mixed martial arts, Shine Fights suffered an early defeat today (May 15) when the courts ruled in favor of Don King Productions (DKP), who filed an injunction earlier this week to try and stop the "Worlds Collide: Mayorga vs. Thomas" pay-per-view main event from Fayetteville, North Carolina. corespondent Josh Gross reported the news earlier today.

King and his band of merry men argued that Mayorga was under an exclusive promotional agreement with DKP and that his fight against "Dinyero" put the former pugilist in breach of contract.

Shine fights CEO Devin Price was confident that Mayorga was being employed and promoted legally, based on the distinction between boxing and mixed martial arts. He argued that DKP represents "El Matador" for the former, and Shine Fights for the latter.

Unfortunately Broward Country Circuit Court Judge Marc C. Gold did not agree.

Shine Fights has yet to issue a statement regarding tonight's show or a possible replacement for Mayorga. Keep it locked in right here at for more updates as they become available.

Feel sorry for Din...after all the trash talk from Mayorga, he won't even be able to pummel him and take his arm home.

This sucks. For people still interested in boxing vs mma arguments this fight would have been more interesting and revealing than others coming up. Din is no joke it would have been a fun easy win for him.
