LAS VEGAS -- Seven professional boxers and a manager have told the FBI they agreed to throw fights for as much as $10,000 cash apiece to pad the
victory records of two heavyweights being groomed for "big money" matches, according to prosecution documents filed in a federal sports bribery
The prosecutors also say another manager, nationally prominent boxing agent Robert Mittleman, bribed an American fighter with $10,000 cash and a
Lincoln Navigator to lose a March 21, 2000, bout in Denmark against Brian Nielsen, a former Olympic bronze medalist whom Mittleman represented.
