Harry Joe Yorgey was declared the winner on Friday, June 13, 2008, in his arbitration case over his manager James E. Deoria. Both parties were in a dispute over the boxer-manager contract that was signed between them on February 9, 2006. At the age of 30, Harry is a five-year pro. A veteran boxer at 154 pounds, he is a very popular performer in his home area in Pennsylvania .. He has an impressive ring record of 20 wins, no loses and 1 draw, with 9 wins coming by knockout. Make that 10 knockouts with his latest victory.
In a decision by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission on the 13th of June, the commission ruled that Harry Joe Yorgey “may take part in any contest or exhibition or otherwise exercise his talent without the approval of Manager Deoria, as long as Deoria receives 15% of the fighter’s purses, instead of the original Boxer/Manager contract of 40%”.
Yorgey can now participate in boxing matches without the approval of Deoria, who had previously contested any bouts that were presented to Yorgey by his new promoter Arthur Pelullo of Banner Promotions.
Harry Joe Yorgey was previously scheduled to fight on March 7th, 2008 at the Foxwoods Casino on the ESPN Network in the televised co-feature versus Jason LeHoullier for the vacant NABA Super Welterweight title. Deoria blocked that bout from taking place with the legal battle that he started against Harry Joe Yorgey.
With the decision from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission, it has cleared the way for Yorgey to continue his career and challenge Jason LeHoullier for the title in the co-feature of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights on August 22nd, 2008 at the Sommet Center in Nashville , Tennessee , a fight that should have happened five months ago will now finally happen.
