Social Gloves Entertainment came forward with a statement following rumors of their bankruptcy and the above allegations to assure that those who participated in the June 12th event would be paid.

Alleged legal troubles involving Catherine Paiz McBroom also surfaced online. Many users on Twitter have since speculated about the reported wealth of Austin McBroom and the ACE Family.
