Hall of Fame promoter Mogens Palle and his company International Entertaiment have scored what seems like a clean KO in court over the former owners of Danish network DK4 – a company that in turned had sued Palle. DK4 claimed that what was delivered from Palle wasn´t good enough and also claimed rights to two Mikkel Kessler fights that went out on PPV and eventually they walked out on the contract. Palle then filed a lawsuit for breach of contract and won – the problem is that the company he sued is under administration and there are no money to collect. Palle was awarded 30 million DKK, a good 4 million EUR but probably won´t get a dime out of it. Not even the legal representatives for Palle´s counterpart have been paid in full.
