Directly contradicting the Court’s decision, Guerrero’s current team is once again interfering with Goossen Tutor Promotions contract with Robert Guerrero. Nothing in the Court's decision stated it's basis was merely because of a lack of Armando Garcia's signature on the Arbitration Decision. Rather, the Court specifically found for Goossen Tutor Promotions on the grounds that the Arbitration award was obtained by "corruption, fraud, or other undue means."
There is no court decision or binding arbitration award that has ever allowed Guerrero to sign with any promoter, including Golden Boy Promotions, while he remains under contract with Goossen Tutor.
Mr. Guerrero, his management, and the California State Athletic Commission (“CSAC”) all signed and approved Guerrero’s Promotional Agreement with Goossen Tutor Promotions, which allows for extensions of the five-year term due to injuries and other reasons. That contract remains valid, binding, enforceable and in effect and has not expired on its own terms.
Golden Boy and Guerrero are ignoring the Court’s Decision overturning CSAC’s Arbitration award, having decided on their own that Goossen Tutor’s contract with Guerrero has expired.
Guerrero’s counsel today went so far as to ask Deputy Attorney General Karen B. Chappelle to support Guerrero’s contract with Golden Boy over Goossen Tutor, completely ignoring Goossen Tutor’s legal rights. Ms. Chappelle and Deputy Attorney General Earl Plowman are the same legal advisors to the arbitrator who apparently orchestrated passing off their decision as that of the arbitrator, which resulted in the Court finding the Decision was procured through corruption, fraud or other undue means.
The Court's Decision is binding on all parties, including Guerrero, CSAC, and Golden Boy. Goossen Tutor will take all appropriate steps to make sure ALL parties comply with the Court’s Decision.
