Official sues over Tyson-Lewis brawl


Published: January 21, 2005

A boxing official is going back to court
over injuries he says he suffered when Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson had
a pre-fight brawl at a Manhattan hotel in 2002.

Jose Sulaiman, president of the World Boxing Council, alleged in
separate lawsuits filed in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday that he
suffered physical and psychological injuries when he was KO’d during
the melee. Sulaiman is seeking damages from the Millennium Hotel and
promoter Main Events, the event’s sponsor.
