Warren wins libel suit!

Promoter Frank Warren has won £35,000 in libel damages against former WBO heavyweight champion Herbie Hide at London’s High Court. The award follows comments made by Hide on a Setanta Sports broadcast in July last year. Hide alleged that Warren had bribed WBO cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson to retire and give up his world title so that Enzo Maccarinelli would unjustifiably gain it without having to fight Nelson. Warren obtained a summary judgement against Mr Hide earlier this year, and was today awarded £35,000 in damages by Judge Patrick Moloney QC. Warren was also granted an injunction preventing Hide from repeating the libel. Describing the libel against Warren as “serious”, the judge said that the words spoken had damaged the promoter’s reputation, and he was entitled to be vindicated. “I am pleased with the judgement and hopefully it will put an end to the matter,” said Warren outside court, “and Herbie Hide will see what a stupid fellow he is in making remarks like that.”
