Stichter, Riedel Confirms Plan Of Reorganization Filed By Former Light-Heavyweight Champion Of The World - November 11, 2004

On November 11, 2004, the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division entered an order confirming the plan of reorganization filed by Antonio Tarver. The Debtor was the light-heavyweight champion of the world after having defeated Roy Jones, Jr. eight days after the filing of his bankruptcy petition. The confirmed plan, among other things, resolved disputes with the Debtor’s manager who contended an injunction prior to the bankruptcy filing alleged prevented Tarver from fighting further in bouts and provided that creditors would be paid in full.
