Court orders Tyson to pay $48,000 for gala no-show
Question of the Day
WARSAW, POLAND (AP) - A court in Poland has ordered Mike Tyson to pay $48,000 in compensation to the organizer of a boxing gala for which the former heavyweight champion did not show up last year.
The decision took effect this month after Tyson did not appeal it, and can be executed through European Union regulations on British territory, Judge Igor Tuleya, a spokesman for the Regional Court in Warsaw, told The Associated Press on Friday.
The Polish organizer of the gala, Tomasz Babilonski, sued Tyson in March for $48,000 compensation and interest.
The Gazeta Wyborcza daily said Babilonski filed the suit because Tyson’s managers were refusing to talk about any compensation.
