A lawsuit, case number SC110195, has been filed against The World Boxing Hall of Fame, Inc. for breach of contract, promise without intent to perform, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment. The formal complaint states that the Hall of Fame is being sued for canceling their ceremonies and intentionally damaging and causing economic loss to the Plaintiff, Imagine That Entertainment and Event Management.

According to the contract signed by both the President and Treasurer of the World Boxing Hall of Fame as well as by the Contractor for Imagine That Entertainment and Event Management, Imagine That was hired by The World Boxing Hall of Fame to produce the 2010 Induction Ceremony for Mike Tyson, Julio Cesar Chavez, Bennie Briscoe, and Dwight Muhammad Qawi.
