While somewhat amusing at first, I have now begun to tire of this nonsense. I noticed that the response from Sycuan did not specifically dispute one single fact that I laid out. Since what I wrote was the absolute truth, perhaps vague responses about fiction or novels is the best way to be non-committal in your public statements, especially should this dispute ultimately result in litigation of some sort. It's certainly better than telling an absolute lie by saying something like "We never agreed to the fight", which of course as we all know would be an absolute lie.
Furthermore, to tell you the truth I really don't care anything about you, or your day to day activities. I was completely unaware that you had attended Roy Englebrect's Fight Promoter University, and merely offered the suggestion as means of interjecting a bit of humor into the situation. The fact that you actually had attended, as a guest or otherwise, well, all I can say is that it made the joke about 500 times funnier than it was originally.
As for the assertion that it was Joe DeGuardia and myself who chose to air this in the media, perhaps we could look at the times our various press releases were sent out. Sycuan started this mess, and Joe and
I merely responded to your fabrications. Had your company elected to keep your mouths shut, then perhaps this laundry may never have had to have been aired in such a public way. We already had the Hlatshwayo fight made and were more concerned about our ticket price points and print materials for our eliminator than we were about the PR spin about Campbell-Diaz falling out.
In addition, you offered a thinly veiled threat about "pursuing all legal remedies it deems necessary". My thoughts on that are quite simple. Bring it. The thought of having my counsel be able to depose you
and your staff makes the hassle and expense of the litigation almost worth it. Not quite, but almost. Perhaps though your house counsel needs to give you a refresher course on slander and defamation cases. They require that the defendant actually lied about something. That just might present a minor problem for whatever case you think you might have, especially after you lose and have to eat my attorney fees and costs.
Perhaps the best thing would be if we all just moved on in life, as I have now lost interest in this debate.
In closing, I am glad to see you are finding your way to the "high road", and I also wish you success in your future endeavors. I am done with this.
