Murphy, Falcon & Murphy Represents Boxing Promoter Don King Sued by Mike Tyson for Fraud and Theft
Heavyweight champion Mike Tyson sued legendary boxing promoter Don King and his company, Don King Productions, in federal district court for $100 million, accusing King of fraud and conversion (theft.) Tyson also accused King of concealing revenue from the sale of the non-U.S. broadcast rights of Tyson fights. King and his company hired Murphy, Falcon & Murphy to defend them against these allegations.
Murphy, Falcon & Murphy was hired to protect the reputation and credibility of the leading African American-owned sports business, and to prevent Tyson from obtaining money to which he was not entitled.
After years of protracted litigation, King and Tyson entered into a confidential settlement agreement for an insignificant sum of money.
