Calzaghe wins battle with former manager

9:03 am on 17 March 2009

Former world boxing champion Joe Calzaghe has won a High Court fight with Frank Warren when his ex-manager was ordered to pay him around 5 million dollars.

The British fighter, who retired this year as undefeated world super-middleweight champion, had said he was owed the money in unpaid fees from Warren who was also his former promoter.

Warren had said the boxer owed his Sports Network company 2 and a half million dollars for breaking a verbal contract for one more fight but the judge dismissed his claim.

Warren is planning to appeal against the court ruling.
