BRITISH boxing star Daniel Dubois is reportedly SUING legendary promoter Don King having not been paid for his win over Trevor Bryan.
The 24-year-old blasted out his heavyweight rival in the fourth round in Miami in June to win the WBA ‘regular’ title.
A huge left hook ended the contest prematurely as the London native extended his near-perfect record to 18-1.
But according to Big Fight Weekend, while Dubois may have left with the belt, he didn’t leave with any of the purse money owed to him.
It has been said that Dynamite sued Don King Productions in Florida on Monday night alleging breach of contract.
The news outlet claims King, 90, is yet to pay him for his victory in the States of which he is owed 45 per cent of the $3,116,001 [£2.56m] purse, which amounts to a whopping £1.15m.
And it has been stated that in a copy of the lawsuit which has been obtained by Big Fight Weekend, Dubois is suing for between £380k-£771k.
The big difference in the sum of money is claimed to be because Dubois is unsure whether King paid the sanctioning fees to the WBA.
Dubois’ attorney Leon Margules told BFW on Tuesday: “The fighter hasn’t gotten paid.
“And when boxers get in the ring and risk their lives the most important obligation of the promoter, the sanctioning body and the commission is to see that they are paid, and that hasn’t been done here.”

Following Dubois’ stunning win, he called out compatriot Dillian Whyte where he declared he will be “getting it”.
Speaking immediately after claiming the WBA’s secondary strap, Dubois roared: “I am ready for whoever is next.
“I believe this will instantly make me a better fighter now.
“When you win the world title they say you become next level so names like Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker are all on my hitlist.
“I will fight whoever Frank [Warren] puts me in with next. It has been amazing.
“Coming out here and winning a world title is what I dreamed of as a little kid and now it has finally happened.”
