World of Boxing and King entered an agreement for King to produce boxer Guillermo Jones for a fight against Denis Lebedev. King agreed to Jones participating in a “12 Round WBA Cruiserweight World Title match” against Lebedev. On the day of the fight, Jones tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and the fight was cancelled. World of Boxing brought suit against King for breach of contract and to recover costs it expended in reliance of the agreement. King argued that the only benefit World of Boxing would have received from the fight was the revenue it had already received from ticket sales ($75,000).
