Throughout the past few weeks boxing’s most powerful figure has, Al Haymon, has been on a signing spree. In just the past couple of months Haymon has signed Robert Guerrero, Luis Collazo, Lamont and Anthony Peterson, Paulie Malignaggi, Adonis Stevenson and the list goes on and on. Rumors are now circulating that Richard Schaefer and Al Haymon will be teaming up to start their own promotional company.
In a recent interview Bernard Hopkins refused to comment on the situation and looked to be very bothered by the question. With Oscar de la Hoya’s personal demons it would be hard to imagine that he could handle the company should Schaefer jump ship. Also, with the amount of talent that Haymon has on board, including the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Adonis Stevenson and Erislandy Lara, Goldenboy could find themselves in big trouble.
What do you think of this rumor? Let me know in the comments section below.
