Rapper Jay Z, who manages the sports company Roc Nation Sports is getting legally sued by one of the former boxers for getting severe brain injuries after taking three fights in 79 days.
Boxer Daniel Franco says he signed with the company in 2015 and won first five fights with the company.
According to the boxer, he came down with bad flu before one of the fights. He claims he told Roc Nation he needed to postpone or cancel the March 23 fight but they pressured him into fighting anyway. He says he lost badly in the 3rd round and should have taken time off to recover but instead, Roc Nation booked him to fight again 50 days later on May 12, reports Tmz.com.
He goes on to claim that Roc Nation booked him for a third fight just a month later on June 10 his third fight in 79 days. But, Franco claims Roc Nation never took the steps to make sure he was medically fit to take that third fight and it could have cost him his life. In the court documents, Franco claims he believes he suffered two skull fractures and a brain bleed before the June 10 fight that could have been detected.
