Capítulo: El campeón | Caso Cerrado | Telemundo


Hello and welcome back. Let’s welcome out
our next case of the day with a quote by
Argentinean race car driver Juan Manuel Fangio. “You can succeed
in life many ways, not just by winning.” Bring out the litigants, please. He’s making the worst
decision a boxer can make. The consequences are
going to be serious. Everything’s set, now he just needs
to come through. Hello and welcome. Hello. Many, you’re the plaintiff. Who is Alex, why are
you suing him and what do you request in
order to settle this case? -Hello, ma’am.
-Hello. This person here is
a boxing manager. I mean, he thinks he’s a
manager for some time now. You’re going to start
with that crap again? He has no clue what he’s doing. I’m tired of all
that crap you’re talking. Ma’am, I came all
the way from Puerto Rico to beg you to please
void this contract. My brother signed this contract, but I can’t do much to
get a signed contract voided in Puerto Rico, but I
know you’ll understand. I know you’ll want to help me. Excuse me. I’m laughing because you said you can’t do much
in Puerto Rico, but perhaps you can
on “Case Closed.” Why do you want to
void that contract? -Can I take it to you?
-Yes. This contract is full
of ridiculous nonsense. What is this contract for? According to this,
who’s going to fight? My brother. My brother signed that contract. He took advantage of what
my brother’s going through. I didn’t. Hang on. That’s what you always do. Hang on a second, please. Let’s get ourselves
organized first. Are you a boxing promoter too? -I’m a boxing manager.
-Okay. -I’m both a boxer and a manager.
-Great. For how long? Ten years now. I’ve boxed my whole life. Great. I’ve been a boxer ten years and got my license to be
a manager two years ago. Do you manage your brother? No, but we have a
verbal agreement. Okay. He’s an amateur boxer. He’s had 35 amateur fights
and has a great record. He’s only lost
two fights out of 35. Great.
How old is he? 18. Okay, so this contract is
for a fight your brother. Correct? Yes. So he can take him
to Santo Domingo for a professional fight. And you don’t want him to go. No. Why not? Because he can’t
fight right now. He’s not doing well healthwise. Why not? My verbal agreement
with my brother was that when he turned 18,
I’d help him go professional. I had been in talks with
some promoters in the U.S. Selling dreams. Whatever. I’d been in talks with
some promoters in the U.S. who were going to help him. So what happened is
that during his last fight, unfortunately, which can happen in
this type of sport… He had to fight in a
national tournament and had to fight
a Mexican boxer. Okay. He head-butted him in his face
and he injured his left cornea. Okay. He went to the doctor and he was told he
needed to take a break. He can’t step in a ring. His cornea could detach
and he could go blind. That’s what he
doesn’t understand. All he cares about is the money. This is a business, man. He sees it as a business
and I see it as a sport. Of course. The problem is that your
brother signed this contract. Why did he sign it? Because he got
fired from his job, his wife is pregnant,
and he owes two months’ rent. So I’m making a lot
of sacrifices. I can’t just come up
with $100-$200 dollars, but I told him anyway that
I’d give him $100 a week if he helped me at the gym. Clean, help me
with the other guys… And it’s helping him out a bit while he waits for
his eye to get better. That’s peanuts. So one day, this guy
shows up at the gym. He starts talking to everybody and handing out his
business cards and flyers, when I see him
talking to my brother. I knew exactly what
his intentions were, so I told him to
get out of my gym, that I didn’t want
to see him there. He got mad, so I had to get
security to kick him out. Why didn’t you kick
me out yourself? Because- Excuse me…
Oh, dear. Alex. I’m a professional, unlike you. Alex, please. You’ve got your
brother wasting time. Goodness, Alex. There’s no need to make threats. We’re going to resolve
this issue by talking. There’s no need. The only scary thing
about him is his mug. You can’t intimidate
people here. There’s no need for that. So your brother
was in need of money, so he signed this contract. Yes. What is the problem exactly? For example, the third page
talks about 12 fights. In a period of how many months? 12 fights in six months. That’s too many. Even 12 fights in
one year is a lot. And with his eye injury, he
could ruin his career forever. That’s why he needs to rest. Yes. That’s why you want
to void this contract, because of your
brother’s situation and his health condition
and so on. I’m begging you. His eye is really messed up. I understand now. Very well. You get to respond now, Alex. -Hello, ma’am.
-Hi. I want to make something clear. I’m not a boxer.
I’m a professional wrestler. That’s why he doesn’t
know what he’s doing. Chill, man.
Be quiet. You already had your turn. I wanted to get into boxing because I saw that
it was profitable. For him. I’ve got six kids under me. Enmanuel, the kid we’re talking
about, would make seven. I want to take him where
every boxer wants to go, to a world title. And get him with a
good promoter in the U.S. This man… had him in a gym
for five or six months cleaning up s—
and picking up trash. He wants to box. I was helping him. He wants to make money. He can’t fight yet.
Can’t you understand that? You can’t have him
sweeping the floor. He’s got a lot of talent and
you have to make of use of it. Hang on a second. I understand what you’re saying. I know what your intentions are
and what you’re trying to do as a businessman. That’s what you’ve got to do. However, you know this
is a kid with an eye injury that could result in blindness. I’m just finding out now. There you have it. I called him and told him. You told me after he
signed the contract. See?
I did tell you. But after he
signed the contract. Enmanuel came to
my office one day and said to me,
“I’m interested in your offer. I can’t be with
my brother anymore. I feel stagnant and I’m
having financial problems. I want to succeed.” So we signed the contract,
which you have right there. How much money is he going
to make with this contract? He’s going to make $5,000 in
his first professional fight. That’s what I’m
guaranteeing him. But the contract says he
has to win the first six fights in Santo Domingo. If he wins the first six fights, I’ll take him to the U.S., and he’ll get $5,000 for
the 7th fight. Those are the requirements. But it’s probably
something like $10,000 and he’s keeping $5,000. That’s what happens.
I know from experience. I understand that, but everyone knows
this business is like that. Now we have a signed contract
by a kid with an eye injury and he wasn’t aware
about his injury. What I’m going to do
is think about what it is he wants
as a professional. A boxer who can
perform for a long time or a kid who can make
him a few bucks now, but who will never fight again
if his cornea gets detached. That’s the issue here. We’re trying to find that
balance in this case. Did anyone bring any witnesses? Yes, I did. Great. We’ll take a short break
and be back with this case. Do you realize that you’re
putting your career in danger? I know, but I need the money. He was one of my opponents. When he found out we were
opponents, he backed out. -I did what?
-You backed out. Oh, dear God. He’s talking about
your eye here, not mine. There’s nothing wrong
with my cornea. It’s your eye. CASE CLOSED but everyone knows
this business is like that. Now we have a signed contract
by a kid with an eye injury and he wasn’t aware
about his injury. What I’m going to do
is think about what it is he wants
as a professional. A boxer who can

-You backed out. Oh, dear God. He’s talking about
your eye here, not mine. There’s nothing wrong
with my cornea. It’s your eye. CASE CLOSED
