Valemus’ sports law specialist Neil Sibley has represented many sporting champions, including the now-retired boxer George Groves. So he was more than happy to go head-to-head with George to record a podcast.
As someone with in-depth experience of the law when it comes to boxing – and many other professional sports – Neil talked with former World, European, British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion George about the important legal issues facing those in sport.
Fighter’s requirements, the obligations on promoters and the negotiation of contracts are just some of the matters Neil explains in the podcast. The two men also go through one of George’s contracts.
Elsewhere in the podcast, George shares some anecdotes from his successful career in the ring and some unusual tales; including musical chairs with UK title-winning heavyweight Derek Chisora and a stare down involving Ukrainian former world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko.
