Mar. 8 SENDAI--Six survivors of a person who was killed by Ricardo Arredondo Jr., a Mexican professional boxer living and working in Sendai City, filed a lawsuit with Chiba Enterprises, demanding 76,000,000 Yen (about US $585,000). The dead was working at a same hotel with the killer who is the son of ex-WBC super-feather champ Ricardo Arredondo. Ricardo Jr. stabbed him with a kitchen knife after a quarrel. The Mexican boxer was invited by Takashi Chiba, the owner of the Chiba Enterprises, fighting here as well as working at one of Chiba's hotels. The survivors claim that the 21-year-old Mexican had a problem in his behavior while working, but Chiba Enterprises failed to regulate the safety for other employees from the Mexican boxer.
