Golden Boy Voluntarily Dismisses Ninth Circuit Appeal in Haymon Antitrust Case

Last week, Golden Boy Promotions filed papers with the Ninth Circuit to voluntarily dismiss its appeal of the Central District of California Court's decision to grant summary judgment to Al Haymon and his various corporate entities on the antitrust claims filed in 2015.  The Ninth Circuit entered an order dismissing the appeal.

Golden Boy's opening appeal brief was due to be filed by October 27.  They filed the stipulation of voluntary dismissal on October 25.

Thus, Al Haymon and the PBC get their final and complete victory over Golden Boy and the allegations of monopoly and violations of the Muhammad Ali Act.   A brief summary of the lower court's decision was covered in this blog last month.
