Ryan Garcia and Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions have been engaged in a legal tussle for quite some time now. Here is all you need to know about the lawsuit.

In June, Garcia and his legal representatives issued a formal letter to Golden Boy Promotions, claiming that the company's choices led to the nullification of their agreement with Garcia.

Garcia accused Golden Boy of inconsistency, as they had an exclusive deal with DAZN while letting him choose his pay-per-view network. He also claimed to have paid $120,000 from his pocket for a $1.25 million step-aside fee to DAZN, allowing his fight with Gervonta Davis to air on Showtime and DAZN.

On June 16, Golden Boy initiated legal action against Garcia and his legal representative, Guadalupe Valencia, in an effort to uphold their contractual agreement with the boxer.
