Calzaghe wins court fight with Warren.

Summary: British boxer Joe Calzaghe has won his court battle with former manager Frank Warren.

British boxer Joe Calzaghe has won his court battle with former manager Frank Warren.

Mr Justice Wyn Williams dismissed Warren's claim for Au1 million from the fighter and ruled at the High Court that he should pay Calzaghe around Au2 million in unpaid fees.

After retiring as undefeated world super-middleweight champion this year, Calzaghe took on his former manager and promoter at the High Court.

Warren brought in barrister Ronald Thwaites QC to argue that not only did he not owe the boxer, but Calzaghe owed him Au1 million for breaking his contract over his last fight.

Calzaghe denied there was a verbal contract to continue boxing for Warren and counterclaimed that he was owed more than Au2 million in fees for his Bernard Hopkins win last year.
