Remember a little while ago, we mentioned the fact that Quinton Jackson was getting sued by White Chocolate Management, a company that was working to secure sponsorships, appearances, and other money making opportunities for Rampage? Well, I have to admit at the time that I wasn’t really expecting White Chocolate to do much more other than put out press releases regarding this and blow a lot of smoke up people’s asses.
Well, here’s all the documents filed by WCM regarding the lawsuit, and after reading through them I think they might actually have a decent case. Basically it comes down to this: after Rampage knocked out Chuck, Rampage’s trainer and manager Juanito Ibarra started rejecting all of the deals WCM was sending their way. Furthermore, he also started telling people WCM put in touch with him that WCM had nothing to do with representing Rampage. There’s also claims that Ibarra also tried to sneak WCM deals through the backdoor to avoid commissions, but I didn’t see any evidence of that laid out in the legal docs.
All in all, I can see why WCM would be pissed. It’s one thing to reject deals that are being offered, but to make WCM look like lying posers and then stealing deals …. Yeah. If all this is true, it wouldn’t surprise me. Ibarra is from the boxing world after all, and you haven’t really made it in that scene till you’ve stabbed a dozen people in the back.
