FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.
With $150,000 at Stake
Floyd Mayweather isn’t just the champ in the ring …. he’s also the champ in court, beating down a music producer who accused him of jacking a song beat back in 2008.
You might recall, producer Anthony Lawrence Dash sued Money May in 2010 over a song the boxer used as entrance music during his 2008 appearance at WWE’s Wrestlemania 24 (skip to 2:32 in the video). Dash said the beat in the song was his, and Floyd used it without permission.
Dash sued Mayweather, WWE, and others for at least $150,000 in damages — but a judge recently ruled in Mayweather’s favor.
According to the ruling, Dash wasn’t entitled to a cut of the profits from Mayweather’s use of the song … because he couldn’t prove Mayweather even made money off the song in the first place (same with WWE).
Bottom line: Dash lost … and unlike Canelo, he didn’t even get a consolation prize.
