LAWYERS OBTAIN LAST MINUTE BIG WIN FOR SHANE MOSLEY VS. VARGAS: ONLY WATER, FERNANDO, NO SPORTS DRINKS!

Las Vegas, Nevada  -  Arguing unfair change of rules by the Nevada Athletic Commission, Lionel Sawyer & Collins lawyers prevailed against Fernando Vargas being allowed to drink sports drinks vs. water for July 14's big fight in Las Vegas.  The defendant, the Nevada Athletic Commission, on Wednesday decided to allow fighters to consume approved "sports drinks" during bouts.  Representing Shane Mosley and Golden Boy Promotions, Inc., Charles McCrea argued the case before the Court, stating that the Nevada Athletic Commission's prior rule was that only water was to be consumed by fighters and that the rule should stand to allow only water.  The Commission rejected the objection on Thursday.  Charles McCrea then threw a successful left hook with a petition for a writ of mandamus, seeking a TRO enjoining the enforcement of the rule permitting only water consumption during fights.  The basis for the petition was improper rulemaking by the Commission and unfair change of the rules governing this particular bout.
