Clark Hill Attorney Charles Murphy Secures Victory by Judge’s Decision in Boxing Promotion Case

Sep 24, 2020

Clark Hill attorney Charles Murphy successfully argued for a temporary restraining order to be granted for Salita Promotions Corp. and Dmitriy Salita, a boxing promoter, whose world-ranked and undefeated boxer attempted to take a bout outside of their promotional agreement. 

When Salita learned that the boxer was scheduled for a Sept. 21 bout in St. Petersburg, Russia, without Salita’s consent, Salita filed suit to prevent the boxer from participating since it was a breach of their promotional agreement and could potentially conflict with a nationally televised fight Salita arranged for the boxer this November. 

Boxing Talk Media covered Eastern District of Michigan Judge Laurie J. Michelson’s ruling in favor of Murphy and Salita Promotions Corp. To read the full details of the case and decision, please visit Boxing Talk’s website here
