 SHINE: MAYORGA WILL FIGHT DESPITE INJUNCTION
Saturday, May 15, 2010 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com

Don King's best efforts to spoil Ricardo Mayorga's professional MMA debut took a big step forward Saturday. A judge in Broward County, Fla., granted King an injunction to stop the former boxing champion from competing on Shine Fight's Worlds Collide pay-per-view card in Fayetteville, N.C., tonight.

It's only a big step forward because according to Shine Fights they still plan on moving forward with the bout, regardless of the judge's decision.

Shine Fights' PR representative Phil Lanides on Saturday confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that they still plan on moving forward with Mayorga's involvement in the fight stating, "Official position at this point is that we're still going forward."

Shine Fights did confirm that they would also alert fans and the media if anything changes in the situation, or if Mayorga will indeed be pulled from the bout tonight against Din Thomas.

The battle between Don King and Shine Fights has been ongoing for the past few weeks regarding the promotional contract Mayorga has with King.

King had sent two separate "cease and desist" orders to Shine Fights to stop Mayorga from fighting for the promotion, and last week filed an injunction to stop the bout from happening. The judge in Broward County Saturday enforced that injunction, but at this time Shine has decided to ignore that order and move forward with the fight.

There was no official word at the time of publication if Shine Fights plans additional legal action to press forward against the judge's order, but stay tuned to MMAWeekly.com as more information will surely be available over the next few hours.

Just heard from a friend on the Police department down there that if an injunction has been granted the state athletic board must not allow the fight to happen.

Just posturing to sale PPV's by shine.

 Makes perfect sense.

I can definitely see Don King getting the cops down there to enforce the injunction.

 Wouldn't this be considered illegal then? Or open them up to law suites?

100Percent - Why not give King a piece of the action? He is the one guy that could pull off a major UFC upset. He's a mafia connected, lawyer'ed up, pr genius, piece of shit. But he'd make Shine a ton of money.
If memory serves me right, Don King already tried and failed with promoting an mma show. And Don King has nothing to offer MMA, and DFW would run him out of the business.

the closer to the fight we got, i just knew it would never happen

i knew SOMETHING would stop this fight

fuck Don King, and fuck Mayorga and his manager for even taking the fight in the first place

wasting Shines money, the ticket holders money, and Din's time

Thomas would have smoked him

Gross Twitter:
Ricardo Mayorga is out per @KarynBryant. Unfortunate for Din Thomas, who had good sponsorship money lined up for the fight.

That is some bullshit. Isn't it a little ridiculous to have a judge rule on the day the fight is supposed to happen? Not to mention that ruling is bogus.

If Shine Fights first ppv wasn't sunk already with the gross amount of free/cheaper/(most likely) higher quality mma counter programming tonight, it is now.
