Fox's embattled boxing show The Next Great Champ has another rival to contend with. Independent-film producer Leigh Ann Burton has filed a civil complaint against Oscar De La Hoya and his Golden Boy Promotions, claiming they got the idea for Champ from her. The suit comes just days after a judge rejected an attempt by producers of NBC's The Contender to block Champ from airing. Long story short: Fox needs to put this show out of its misery.
