LONDON (AP) - Retired boxing champion Joe Calzaghe has won his claim over unpaid fees from promoter and manager Frank Warren.

The High Court ruled Monday that Warren’s Sports Network Limited should pay the Welsh fighter around $2.8 million.

The undefeated former super middleweight champion claimed that Warren persuaded him to sign contracts under duress while he was suffering dehydration and hunger preparing for fights.

Warren argued he did not owe the boxer. He claimed Calzaghe owed him $1.4 million for breaking his contract over his last fight with Roy Jones Jr. in November.

Warren says Sports Network plans to appeal to reduce the sum it has been ordered to pay.
