“Bagel Boss Guy” Chris Morgan will get his day in TV court — after not appearing in the ring.
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman is suing Morgan for an upfront fee, travel expenses and event expenses after Morgan allegedly bailed on a boxing match against the former “Saved by the Bell” star Dustin Diamond.
On Monday, we hear that Feldman and Morgan will settle their dispute on the legal show, “Hot Bench.” A source said of the show, “All verdicts are binding. The case cannot be appealed.” The syndicated law show airs locally on WCBS-TV and features Judges Patricia DiMango, Tanya Acker and Michael Corriero on the three-bench panel.
Feldman initially announced the fight on Howard Stern’s show. Morgan was originally meant to box Lenny Dykstra, who pulled out and Diamond then stepped in.
TMZ reported that hours before the Atlantic City, NJ, bout, Morgan announced on Twitter he would not attend. The site then reported that Feldman sued Morgan last month.
We hear that Morgan said he never agreed to fight Diamond as a replacement.
