Shocker: Companies House suspends Hennessy Sports strike-off

Phil Jay 16/01/2018

According to public records featured on the UK Government Companies House, a Hennessy Sports Worldwide Limited strike-off has been suspended for the time being.

The information shows that on December 5, 2017, Hennessy could have been struck off.

A statement read: “Upon dissolution all properties and rights vested in, or held in trust for, the company are deemed to be bona vacantia and accordingly will belong to the crown.”

(‘Bona Vacantia’ means vacant goods and is the name given to ownerless property, which by law passes to the Crown. The Treasury Solicitor acts for the Crown to administer the estates of people who die intestate (without a Will) and without known kin (entitled blood relatives) and collect the assets of dissolved companies and other various ownerless goods in England and Wales)

Fast forward just over a month to January 9 of 2018 and ‘striking off action was suspended’ – which the Registrar states is due to an objection.

Further reading shows the company has been active since September 2012 with a registered address of 150 High Street, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN13 1XE.

Hennessy has represented Fury and his cousin Hughie their entire careers and was recently involved in the organization of a world title fight for the latter against Joseph Parker.
