Shumenov sues Campillo

Light heavyweight contender Beibut Shumenov and his promoter, KZ Event Productions, Inc., have filed a lawsuit in Kazakhstan against WBA light heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo, Sampson Boxing, LLC and Sampson Lewkowicz seeking a judicial declaration that, as a result of Campillo’s alleged violation of the drug testing rules of the Kazakhstan Federation of Professional Boxing) and the WBA, Campillo, Sampson and Lewkowicz have, under their contracts with KZ, forfeited any monies otherwise due to them from the August 15 Campillo-Shumenov fight. Team Shumenov claims that Campillo breached his contract with KZ by not going to the drug testing room as required both by Kazakhstan law and the WBA Rules, instead going into locked shower room with one of his trainers for approximately ten minutes. Shumenov, though his American lawyer, Judd Burstein, has also filed a formal challenge to the bout results with the WBA.
