No you don’t expect floyd to fight canelo at 43 but he isn’t in his prime and yeh had 40 fights against bums and easy beats accept trout who was just bashed anyway so maybe he is a hype job. Guerro beat no body Ortiz hahahaha shi*. Baldomir ring name should be bum. Floyd fought a younger Moseley than PAC but cotto already dusted him

The biggest contradiction about Mayweather haters is how they try to discredit all the fighters he beat that were champions, HOFs, Undefeated, etc. Yet, when another boxer, like Pacquiao beat those same type of fighters (and Pacquiao hasn’t done it nearly as much as Floyd) their wins prove how great they are. Mayweather haters are walking contradictions.

Maidana is a HARD dude there is no question about it and he has always fought rough… If Floyd rematches him I think he should pack on a little more muscle and try to really hurt Marcos because the guy is a tank, I gotta give him that..

So what Maidana was beaten by “Khan” Manny Pacquiao was beaten by Rustico Torrecampo and knocked Cold by Marquez who is indeed a GREAT fighter but was nothing more than a Mayweather plaything when he stepped in the ring with FMJ.. Again Maidana is a DANGEROUS World Class slugger who has made the night hard for pretty much everyone he fought…

Posted June 5, 2014 9:47 am

Canelo, Guerrero, Ortiz and Maidana were ABSOLUTE prime fighters and any argument to the contrary is a joke! Guerrero was 7 years younger than Floyd the other guys double digits.

Posted June 5, 2014 9:15 am

Canelo had OVER 40 fights when he faced an aging ATG, if he was gonna dethrone Floyd that was the perfect time.. Unless you wanna wait till Mayweather is in his 40’s and his skills badly eroded..???

So Arthur are we supposed to wait till Floyd is 43 or 44 for Canelo to be 28 or 30??? Floyd Mayweather became Champ at what 21 by defeating a veteran like Genaro Henandez, you guys wanna bill these new comers as “Great” yet they get a title shot in the physical primes and you say Awwwwwww that was too early to face a boxer who is in his late 30’s and discussing retirement? That’s pathetic by that logic then Floyd should only be facing guys in their 30’s and skip the young guys??? Man you guys contradict yourselves LMAO!

“Golden Boy is the brand. Schaefer is just “an errand boy sent by grocers clerks to collect a bill”. besides, how difficult can it be to put fight-cards together and sign quality fighters who crave the high-profile that GBP has to offer?” – Te Tumbo you underestimate the importance a top executive who’s financially savvy brings to the table. Many companies have tanked after the departure of a talented CEO. Schaefer is an impediment to the fights we want happening but he’s a sharp guy. If GBP is to survive and flourish Oscar will have to bring in an equally talented replacement. He can’t be the top exec at his own firm because he’s not reliable or educated for it.

Schaefer is a “NO” MAN. boxing needs to hear the word “Yes” .
Yes lets find ways to make the best fights, not “NO” I refuse to work with him or top rank or HBO, interpreted into plain english = the best fights will not get made.

That’s not good for boxing or the fans and to agree with Schaefer or stick up for that behavior are people that like the status quo and are also bad for boxing.

Ok got it.This is only my logic conclusion .
HBO as a leader has a rules to uphold fairly all boxing .
richard dream targeting the Mexican or latino market is really isn’t legal to there standards.as as they hold others fighter under contracts.that they wan him to fight. As to why cut tie on a winning idea? HBO has a manager change.
That why he was later banded from HBO, when he pulled out of fighting manny. He see nothing in his gain out of this fight. His dream is the growing Mexican or Latino fans.( he first approached HBO with this idea and got in the door/times change he didn’t ) Oscar know this, and can’t live with this. He has alway stated all fighters as equal.

And showtime 2 th place ran and pick up GBf as they couldn’t care less.
True they are none Mexican fighter but they are mostly a Mexican conection fights
That there are knowed for, the logic fit together.

Posted June 4, 2014 1:55 pm 


Mike Tyson

Trying to find GBf stock price, hard but found something Richard can go back to banking.
Schaefer resigned from Swiss Bank in May 2000. “I had money set aside,” he remembers. I had my stock options and 401Ks. I knew I could always go back to the bank if things didn’t work out.
Guys a genius, a visionary he looked a boxing as a Latino population that was starting to be huge and when to HBO addressing this market, why they has a fallout?

Another thing is the head force isn’t Oscar they brought Roy Engelbrecht he was a promoting company that was establish. Roy the head man and they is also a friend of Richard that still working.
Really he signed a contract, Oscar can see that he forfilled it. But Oscar will let him go peacefully as they are close friends,

The end of the road for Golden Boy Promotions.

Then pacroide will fight Rios 5 more times.

Posted June 4, 2014 12:54 pm

Richard dealing with Floyd is questionable, how. Much is GBf reallly earing for Floyd per fight. There are advancing 32 million per fight, that mean Counting all fighter on the card they are investing 50 million a event. They should get at lease 40 million in returned. If there not Richard is giving Floyd a easy ride. The amount Floyd getting is just too high, someone getting burned, maybe Oscar relized this this, how is GBf doing stock wise?

Posted June 4, 2014 12:52 pm 


Mike tyson

Livershot, when a promoter sign up a fighter, in the contract they have decided how much fight a year he get. That depends of his records as far. It’s usually 1 fight per year for the beginning fighter.
If he a rated fighter the rating affect your opponate.
The promoter will check what outside fighters need a fight for the year in his fighter weight class.he then ask this fighter manager if they want this fight, ok then he calls that promoter, in the cold war here, it’s done through the media a fight will call out a fighter, and the media would only pick out a popular fighter. And it’s seen by the their manager, and answers back.

Floyd production is small potato to Richard, it’s not even functioning and al hamon is a better pick. But I don’t think he staying in boxing anymore.

Al Haymon has many of the big name fighters under contract in many weight divisions. Help me out boxing fans, because I need to understand something. Having so many names, how does he decide who gets to fight who. Shouldn’t a manager have one goal to get his guy a title shot? If you have more than one fighter in a weight class, how does he decide who fights who and when?
Schaefer has been doing his own thing for a while because ODH was in and out of rehab. Schaefer will end up with Mayweather Promotiions.

REGARDING ODLH and Golden Boy

It’s shocking, because it was clear to me months ago that Schaefer, Haymon and TMT were growing ever closer and even on these boards we could see fighters literally queuing up to throw themselves at them… Even Amir Khan (once the ‘anointed one’ at GBP) knew which way the writing was going and jumped to Al!

For ODLH not to realise how potentially damaging or critical it could be to GBP is seriously bad judgement or management or both of his business. Yes, he was in and out of rehab and whore’s drawers, but as an owner and figure head of such a vast company his fingers should have been in the company pies and not those of suspenders wearing 2 dollar hos!

The great Sugar Ray Robinson once said of boxers, “You hope to quit, before you slide, then you wake up and you’ve already slid!”

Well, that’s how I sum up Oscar and his attempts at running a major business.

He was asleep on the job and now he’s woken up to see his ship has not only hit an iceberg, but most of the crew have already jumped ship and there ain’t no life boats left and it’s shipping water, fast!

Posted June 4, 2014 10:12 am 


SREDMOND

Business interests change all the time and moves are made, remember guys that Both Oscar and Floyd used to box for Arum BOTH left and hated him for YEARS (Floyd seemingly forever) Mayweather made millions with HBO, then he defected and went to Showtime for huge money… Ward began with Goosen, now he wants to go in another direction..Schaefer and Oscar having differing visions is not surprising at this point reality is that Schaefer is a TRUE businessman and Oscar is really a former fighter who got into business (there is a difference) Haymon has a rep for getting fighters BIG paydays! Malignaggi was ripping Haymons name up on TV, THEN he went and signed with him when Haymon starting finding him some nice paydays..Oscar and Schaefer had a GOOD run, but Schaefer seems to have deeper relationships with the straws that stir the drink (Haymon, Mayweather) perhaps it was in his interests to move forward and there is a good chance that Oscar will buy out Schaefers remaining stake in the company or secure financing to do so…

Posted June 4, 2014 10:08 am 


EZ E

@E If you are correct then why would Schaefer, who has a rather large stake in the company, be a Benedict Arnold traitor against his own interest? There’s got to be a bit more to this than that. Obviously Oscar, for whatever reason, felt the need to take complete control and call the shots. Hopefully he will now remain focused and dedicate and himself to the company. There was no indication of this situation until a couple of weeks ago. From what I’ve read and heard there are other GBP members that have expressed their concerns. If Schaefer and Haymon have been conspiring against Oscar/GBP it will eventually be exposed. Another intriguing factor is the statement supposedly released by Oscar’s lawyer about Oscar/GBP’s intentions of enforcing the contract that binds Schaefer to to the company for a few more years. hmmm.. Could it be a ploy to eventually buy Schaefer out? I imagine more interesting details will be revealed after Oscar’s induction into the HOF but.. til then many questions and comments will continue along with the rumors and mud slinging. Peace to all!

Guys Floyd Mayweather has already WON all that you an in boxing so any silly predictions of future demise are barely relevant.. If he never sells a single PPV or loses his next 3 fights the guy would have accomplished more than 99% of boxers in history and economically its 99.5%… The guy is 37 years old and his retirement is CLOSE unless he wants to be a boxing cliché (fighting well past prime)… You are gonna have to find a NEW guy to be jealous of or try and explain away unprecedented consistency against upper tier and HOF competition..

Posted June 4, 2014 9:07 am

Haymon and Schaefer must have been planning this for months, getting fighters to sign for al haymon as opposed to GBP. How was Schaefer working in the interest of GBP if he let something like that happen? it was a monumental business slip up by GBP and ODH and it let RS pass on the talent to Haymon. Without a doubt Haymon and RS will get together to set up new promotional outfit

Thank peej. Say he defiantly I I terested in fight match up.and He wanting a fight with khan and calero and says to be sure if they are under contract to GBf he wants that in writing. As He when that route with manny and GBf did sue manny.

He worryed about al hamon suing this time if the fighters are under contract with him. So really Oscar has to bring al hamon To the table and gbf represent his al hamon fighter.
Same thing what Floyd doing he can’t promoter himself to show time so he goes through Richard .

Al hamon can’t go through HBO through arum wiithout Oscar dealing with arum.

Oscar hired Schaefer to put fights together and to deal with promotion everyday business hustles. BHop don’t understand business from an owner perspective so he is thinking from a fighter perspective.

Richard is more likely not returning to boxing, odds are there. He be under too much pressure. And that not his style, pluss he said he wa ts a new chalange, he that age he wants out of boxing.

Al hamon is staying close to GBf until Richard is ruled out as he not wanted at HBO. Only arum through fight will they work with him. Even show time will not work with him deriectly. Only through GBf will work with him as he a dangerous networking guy.
So basically al hamon need top rank or GBf or they will not get tv coverage and he screwed.

PEEJ

its off of the Ring Magazine site

“First of all who does Oscar have in Golden Boy that makes an impact? One guy he has that we know he has is Canelo. Canelo is a valuable product. No question about it,” Arum said. “Does he have any of the welterweights? Does he have [Amir] Khan and [Danny] Garcia? Are they with Golden Boy or are they with Haymon? If he does, yeah it shakes up the landscape because they can be opponents for Manny [Pacquiao], [Timothy] Bradley and [Juan Manuel] Marquez. If they’re not tied to Golden Boy, then it’s business as usual.”

Arum said he’s open to doing business again with Golden Boy now that Schaefer is no longer the CEO. But he said he will tread lightly and wait until De La Hoya goes through all the contracts to determine who is signed with Golden Boy.

“We have to see if we can do fights with whom. There have to be matchups,” Arum said. “In order for there to be matchups, Oscar has to say we have ‘X’ signed to me and we have a guy he can fight. Then we can make the fight. I’m not going to rush in and do something and get my ass sued.”

Hopkins thought Schaefer was going to stay in power. He BHop knows behind doors conversations that is why he is siding with Schaefer. But at the end of the day. Golden Boy was GB before Schaefer and Al Haymond. Plus, now Oscar has a whole set of fighters to put against GB fighters and a new opening to go back with HBO!! Mayweather has decided to move away from GB because he knows there is no more excuses why he is not fighting Manny..the whole world knows that he just don’t want the fight!!!

Exactly, everything right now is speculation till it all spills over. So until then we are going to keep saying things, jumping to conclusions, blaming one side or the other.

Posted June 4, 2014 12:44 am 


PEEJ

My point is everybody is talking about Richard this and Richard that. Like nobody puts any blame on Oscar. Oscar hasn’t run his company in a couple of years now. He talks down on one of his fighters he promotes or was partnered with. There is a reason why Richard does not want to work with Arum and Arum does not want to work with Richard. Arum also doesn’t want to work with Haymon. He has said that Oscar needs to look at the contracts before we work together. Check to see if they are under him or Haymon. If they are under him we can work together but if they are under Haymon then we can’t. I doubt Haymon says he doesn’t want to work with anybody. Clearly Haymon is all about the money. Nobody knows what actually went down and Oscars attorney has already said they were surprised at what happened.

Posted June 4, 2014 12:42 am 


logic

This is all very confusing to me. The relationships – Arum always dissing GoldenBoy’s competence, DLH wanting closer ties with Arum, Schaeffer close ties to Haymon & Showtime seemingly in contradiction to his employer GoldenBoy, yet announces his departure BEFORE divesting his shares, which makes it hard to believe this was a plotted departure, and you even have dlh lawyer saying Schaeffer must honor what’s left of his contract, which makes it hard to believe he is forcing him out – or that dlh is seeking closer ties with tr is a reaction to what Schaeffer did/is doing. I’ll wait this one out.

Mayweather is loving this. It gives him even more of an excuse to avoid facing the best and to continue padding his record with opponents who pose him little threat.

Richard Schaefer and Al Haymon are the perfect fit for him. They’ll keep feeding him dross and he’ll keep lining their pockets with silver.

Posted June 3, 2014 11:10 pm

Bob Arum is dancing in the streets because he knows he is about to drag poor lil Oscar through hell and back. Oscar is not a promoter. He is a figure head and nothing else. He was a great boxer but boxing and promoting are two different ballgames. And make no mistake, Arum is a promoter that knows and uses every trick in the book to his benefit. Do you think he will take it easy on the Golden Boy and his fighters. Hell, he has two top fighters in his own stable that are crying foul in Mickey Garcia and Chavez Jr. Arum has done nothing but talk bad about Golden Boy, Schaefer, Mayweather and Showtime and yet it is Oscar calling him trying to make peace. Arum even suggested that people not buy the Mayweather vs Maidana fight. I have never heard of such low down tactics as to beg people not to buy another product. Oscar better get himself some help. He must still be high!

Not sure how boxing has suffered because of Schaefer. He put on great cards, kept Golden Boy afloat while Oscar was dressing in drag, doing cocaine and then his rehab stint. Not Oscar but Richard. Saying he is not a good promoter when the cards he put together did very well. These days its not just the promoter it is also the fighters who have to promote themselves. There are no real promoters who do the leg work anymore.

Big Ham

After launching and stabilizing the company Richards most important job was to be the final say in contracts, and $$ spent. This is where he is no better than half the members on this ESB board. Again Richard is not a boxing guy, he has built crony relationships with Al Haymon and Stephen Espinoza of Showtime. That is all he is doing to run the company now is working the established crony capitalism that all bankers are good at. He has f*%king zero charisma, nobody likes him. He has no creativity. And boxing has suffered for it. All of GBP’s money is going into mayweather and Canelo.. HBO’s fights this year have been so much more eclectic and better quality than showtimes. Oscar’s know’s this and this is why Richard was fired. He wants to raise the bar of the company and his sport.

Posted June 3, 2014 10:14 pm 


Big Ham

The boxing promotion, is actually a team effort done with a large staff. It involves adverstising, logistics, appearaces. That IS easy. And Richard was not the one doing that. GBP still has it’s promotional outfit intact. What Richard did was make the important decisions involving money. What he really did that was use and i mean DID as in the past tense. Was he helped attain tens of millions of dollars in investment funds for GBP to operate with. If you people think Oscar De La Hoya paid for this company with his fight purses you are mistaken. It was investment and venture capital brought in by an experienced banker named Richard Schaeffer. Richard has never been a good boxing promoter. Don King love him or hate him was a REAL promoter. Richard in his heart of hearts does not love boxing he loves money and that is why Oscar fired him.

@MAD SCIENTIST wow! just in on another main boxing site: “GPB did not issue a statement on the Schaefer situation, and there was nothing from Golden Boy President Oscar de la Hoya, who is normally quite active on Twitter. However, de la Hoya’s lawyer Bert Fields released a statement to the Los Angeles Times indicating that Schaefer is contractually bound to Golden Boy until 2018 and that contract will be enforced.”

ahem.. so, according to you schaefer’s services are no longer of any value, yet Oscar is already refusing to let schaefer go? have you read hopkins’ press release on this situation yet? have you read what other GBP related insiders have said? what ellerbe said? without schaefer GBP would’ve been in total disarray. but then again, you know more than they all do. lololol STFU!

The only thing he was good for was his name. Now we will see how Oscar runs the company and if they can put on the same type of cards they have been putting on. As for Schaefer he is contracted through 2016 or something like that so not sure if he can work for another promotional outfit. He may be done with boxing in all. Who knows.

Klaus … you are an idiot. I will do this slowly because you are an idiot and maybe you understand.

– This article is about Richard Schaefer
– Richard Schaefer has been good at making money
– Richard Schaefer has been bad at developing fighters

I believe that a 23 year old Canelo Alvarez was not ready for Floyd Mayweather.

I believe that a 22 year old Victor Ortiz was not ready for Marcos Maidano.

I believe that a natural 140 pound Josesito Lopez was not ready for Canelo Alvarez at 154 or Marcos Maidana at 147.

I believe that Richard Schaefer made these fights because he is good at MAKING MONEY and not so good at DEVELOPING FIGHTERS. These turned out to be bad decisions for these fighters who were too young or too small for these fights and they lost in each case and it has done damage to their careers particularly Ortiz and Lopez.

This might be just an opinion — but who wants to say I am wrong. I would love to someone defend how these were good decisions for Alvarez, Ortiz, and Lopez.

What the f*ck does this have to do with Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Maywether?

In summary, Klaus is an idiot. I rest my case.

By the way even though Schaefer has a good bit of investment in GBP if he left on a personal note he could very well try and hurt GBP. When you are at this level ego has no bounds. They think they can do better by competing themselves and getting a bigger piece of the pie. It has happened to me personally where my partners left the company after we were bought and couldn’t wait for the non-compete to end so they could compete even while they still had considerable money in the company. It is simple math and ego.

Posted June 3, 2014 7:06 pm

A cold war in boxing was bad news, and kept some good fights from happening. Unfortunately Floyd is now boycotting GBP like a little kid. Long term a lot of the new top promoters are European and it seems like ODH has a much better chance of working with TR, K2 and some of the other organizations. I see this as good for boxing long term, a bit of a mess short term.

Mayweather Promotions List of Boxers:

Lightweight: Mickey Bey (20 – 1 -1, 10 KO’s)
Welterweight: Floyd Maytwitter, Ashley Theophane (35 – 6 -1, 11 KO’s), Ladarius Miller (2 – 0, 0 KO’s)
Light-Middleweight: Ishe Smith (Who cares), Chris Pearson (11 – 0)
Middleweight: J’Leon Love (18 – 0, 10 KO’s), Luis Arias (never heard of him)
SuperMiddleweight: Lanell Bellows, Badou Jack, Ronald Gavril
Cruiserweight: Andrew Tabiti

So, this is his stable of fighters… Whoa!!! A bunch of top performers if you ask me….

I don’t see Maytwitter fighting any of these guys, so who will he fight now that he won’t be doing business with ODH. If Haymon is only an advisor, what capacity is that? He’s not a promoter, he doesn’t have a Promoters license… so what capacity is he in?

Sred, I get what your saying however I belive Floyd and Manny have been the # 1 and # 2 guys not only on the pound 4 pound list but also in the same weight division at more than one point.

To be honest I could careless if they fight after 2014 closes out, I was just more or less making a point how some of these fighters being to involved in their own interest at the highest levels as far as rules go its bad for the sport.

Floyd owning a promotion company and being involved in fighters careers he discoverd is great but floyd being above the rules and dictating who he fights is not.

I remember when I was 18 years old I got a job at a body shop, there were about 20 employees.

We got a 30 minute lunch break and if I or anyone was one minute late well you got a talking to by the owner, except these two guys I noticed.

Turns out those two guys was doing the humpy dance with the owners daughters, I got to know them because I work with them a lot and then I went to lunch with those guys, I could take a 50 minute lunch and walk thru the office 20 min late and somehow I was a ghost, knowbody noticed I was late and my time card got magically got fix.

Long storie short, the rules that apply to an lets say a mike Perez that makes 50 grand a fight, should also apply to a Mayweather that makes 40 million a fight.

A standard set of rules that apply s to all fighters would more legitimize the sport of boxing.

Mayweather is an anomoly so you cant really use that as a litmus test. it’s far from the standard. it’s taken him 18 yrs to build that status…Same can be said for Canelo, or any other anomoly that’s hidden behind door number 2. Ruslans like the new Gatti, Porters like arron pryor, alvarado the new arguello. The fights are only gonna get better… Schaefer can go back to counting benjamins in swiss banks….the only reason he did well was because he had the ultimate cash cow yes Golden Boy Oscar the fishnet De La Hoya the mighty LA boy.

SREDMON… the stalemate was never with GBP, was always with Maytwitter and Schaefer, as it turns out.

Now since ODH is finally taking controls again, maybe we CAN see some TR vs GBP fights happening. And I do hope they do. And since Arum has no qualms working with other promotors, DiBella, 50 cent, etc…. Floyd and his TMT crew may be the odd man out. Only time will tell. Since Maytwitter won’t be working with ODH at all… then who wil he fight? He’s fought many GBP fighters, and he needs that hispanic demographic. Only way he can break 900,000 PPV’s.

And what are you talking about… Maytwitter has not had a KO since Hatton… And please don’t tell me u counted the Ortiz KO. Is easy to KO someone when all we’re trying to do was get a hug and a kiss….

Eric, Floyd has fought in 2 weight classes the past couple years as it pertains to Pac and Manny has only had that WBO belt at WW so aside from fan and boxing perceptions the collision course was not so clear… Then what happened? Pac Man was ROBBED against Bradley and KOed by Marquez so he was not a World Champion for what 2 years? So on paper he was not an FMJ mandatory or anything like that for quite a bit. Add to that the rehab bout he had to fight with Rios and we have Pac out of the loop for quite a bit.. Again this fight was supposed to happen 3 years ago NOW its stale and diminished in importance absent the windfall that would result.

Posted June 3, 2014 4:44 pm

Kato, “Fighting Manny” is an OLD OLD tired discussing Pac Man does not even enjoy the same aura and I am a Manny fan.. Getting KOed, struggling AGAIN in the 3rd bout and not scoring a KO in YEARS show us a guy who is still an ATG but shows nothing Mayweather cannot handle… Most importantly we have a situation where you ignore the stalemate between GBP and TR they are not and will not do business and now that they have parted ways Mayweather/Schaefer are not gonna work with Arum… Get over the Manny fight its not happening for more reasons than simply “Floyd” When is the last time that TR and GBP paired fighters?

50 cent is a music entertainer, what is his credentials as to being a CEO ?

Maybe Gene Simmons from the rock band kiss, can be GBP CEO, i hear he likes boxing.

Maybe country singer Willie Nelson should be CEO.

Mayweather having more money than the powers that be strips their power in itself, having the athletes with more power than the sanctioning bodys and being butt buddy’s or owning the promotion companies along with calling all the shots, this is what you get, Pacq… Floyd’s number one guy for around 6 years but he don’t have to fight him, why because floyd runs the show, he does what he wants, whats good for him, not whats good for the sport.

Nothing against the likes of Mayweather making coin, that’s great, but when the lines get blurred like a Bigfoot photo as to whos calling the shots, the sport suffers.

If the fighters run the show, who will force them to fight the rightful opponent ??

Nobody will or can make them do anything.

ODH had major plans when he created the company. This cold war thing was something he wanted to avoid. I hope he comes out of this with his head above water…

Golden Boy probably will suffer initially with Richard Schaffer departure … but there is a chance that Golden Boy will emerge bigger better and spark a big return of boxing to the main stage worldwide.

How?

(a) Developing stars … properly staging fights for up and coming fighters

(b) Working with both HBO and Showtime … working with Top Rank and Al Heyman: putting together the biggest and the best fights

(c) Giving the star fighters a piece of the company

This is final point is the whole point of Golden Boy in the beginning when De La Hoya, Mosely, and Hopkins came together because they wanted to be in charge rather than the promoters. I think this approach has gone away from Golden Boy because of Richard Schaffer.

Richard Schaffer should get credit for staging “good fights” in the last 10 years.

But Richard Schaffer should get criticism for putting fighters in fights before they are ready — whether it is Alvarez (vs. Mayweather) or Victor Ortiz or Josesito Lopez.

Good move now would be for Oscar De La Hoya to give a piece of the company to Canelo Alvarez. True partnership. And plan out a career path toward really huge mega fights. And then Oscar should do both develop great fighters, stage mega-fights, and play off HBO and Showtime against each others.

This is what I think boxing fans want.

Oscar is right. Patch things up with Top Rank for the good of the sport. There is more to Boxing than building a dominating promotional giant, making the most money, and squeezing everyone else out through clever deal making.

There’s also making the fights fans want to see and looking after the future of the sport. Too many promoters, managers, and orgs are contantly knocking heads … and destroying the best fights for the fans.

Schaefer leaves GBP, WHERE?

Posted June 3, 2014 3:37 pm 


klaus heisler

if I had a penny for everytime I heard “i do all the work my boss gets all the credit ” i’d be a millionaire. but there is a big reason why I hope all the fighters stay with Oscar and not jump ship to Schafer/haymon is because the original mission of GBP was to remove the money men as it was a promotional outfit run by boxers for boxers. Floyd mayweather is a perfect example of this – he went from earning $6 mil a fight to $40 mil minimum due to the business strategy which was devised by Oscar,hopkins,barrera & Moseley when the company founded and the idiot is jumping ship on the company that has given him the lifestyle he is accustomed.

We don’t have to be the greatest fight prophet ever born to see the writings on the wall months ago. Floyd already extended the hand of marriage to Schaefer… and no boxer has more $$$$ or potential than Maytwitter. Schaefer has learned the business of boxing from ODH, so he can move on and pick right up where he left off. He’s already made inroads with Showtime and has the backing of Ellerbe and Maytwitter.

Oscars choice should be someone like 50. And why not. 50 is a good businessman as well… and merging the two companies would create enough of a cushion just in case Maytwitter and Schaefer do decide to raid the barn of talent in GBP.

This is all about Oscar wanting to break the cold war with Top Rank. Richard HATES Bob Arum he thinks he is a snake, and is always insulting Golden Boy Promotions. Remember he was telling people to boycott the Maidana fight. He doesn’t bargain in good faith either…Hes SLIME! Hes always at WAR just like he use to be with Don King. Richard refuses to work with him. Floyd doesn’t have sh#t to do with Richards relationship with Bob Arum. Also Bob Arum still owes Floyd bread.

“Actually UBS, not Credit Suisse…” – Thanks ECAT. Same thing though, all those Wall Street firms are the smartest guys in the room. Pretty sure Schaefer will poach a lot of GBP fighters since they have side deals with Haymen. That will result in a lot of lawsuits. I’ll bet Schaefer has deeper pockets than GBP, which will be critical to any lawsuit. This whole thing will have an ongoing longterm effect on the sport.

My analysis is not LAZY. In fact it makes so much sense.
Ali, who is one of the greatest trash talkers in boxing history learned his craft from a wrassler… Gorgeous George.

George realized early on that people who hate you will pay to see you lose. His antics made him one of the most hated heels in wrasslin and people paid money to see him lose.

Floyd’s employing the same thing. “My fans will love me and pay to see me no matter what but, those who hate me will pay to see me lose as well.” It’s a win, win… and I am in no way diminishing the fact that Maytwitter can draw fans… Love him or hate him… he pockets their $$$ anyway. That is smart. He’s willing to sell out like that. Andre Ward, who’s as skillful as Maytwitter, cannot sell out his livingroom because he’s got no persona. A god fearing, smart, talented boxer can’t compete with the grandiose persona of Maytwitter.

And please dude, don’t get it twisted… I call him MAYTWITTER because he’d rather fight Manny on Twitter than to actually get into the ring with him… Hence the Maytwitter monikor. Fits him perfectly….. He’s had some of his best fights against Larry Merchant, RA Da Rugged Man and Brian Kenny… much more exciting than anything I’ve ever seen in the ring… That’s my opinion. He’s a GREAT, TALENTED, GIFTED, DEFENSIVE BOXER. That’s nice and sweet, but doesn’t get me riled up to see boxing/fighting…..

“Richard will betray haymon too I bet this guy will open a boxing company soon under his name.sooner or later the snake in your room will bite you.” – Anto makes a valid point. Schaefer was a director at a major investment bank, I think it was Credit Suisse. Those guys and their lawyers are smarter than anyone Haymen can hire.

Semi-correct assessment SREDMON- however, you’re missing the point. Maytwitter’s 2 biggest record breaking PPV’s were mostly because his opponent had a HUGE following.

I won’t take anything away from Maytwitter with the way he markets himself…. like a WWE bad guy character… which is just an extension of who he really is… But people want to see the ‘bad guy’ lose. People want to knock down the Swollen Headed giant a few pegs… It’s just human nature. So Maytwitter did not build those huge PPV #’s just by himself.

Mayweather is the BEST seller in boxing if Maidana was relatively low which seems to be the case it was STILL the most successful PPV of the year and he has been murdering the PPV game since his monster bout with ODH.. People forget that the Mayweather era is coming to a close, Floyd has a few more bouts left in him where he is a solid representation of the boxer that has dominated the game for 18 years absent a loss.. He will be 38 next Feb and his career is winding down, wait and see what PPV’s for other guys look like when he is gone..

Without Richard joining al hamon is stuck. Then it only has GBP to get sports its network coverage and backing on its fighters.it But he wants a new chalenge. Could mean out of boxing .I don’t think Richard is planing to as he don’t want to hurt Gbp in competition because it’s part of his company in share.
And he already set as not dealing with top rank fighters another blow to his credit.
Let’s see how this plays out.
I really don’t see why al hamon fighters can’t fight top rank fighter, maybe this will open that door without Richard around. Seems he stopping all these fight from happening.

This could be something BIG and special if Oscar rides this out properly. So what Maytwitter is a PPV KIng, he didn’t get there by himself. His 2 record breaking PPV’s were mostly in part because his dance partners, Oscar and Canelo have HUGE followings outside the US. So, for Maytwitter to even come close to those numbers, he’s gonna have to make sure Manny’s name is on the ticket now….. Ha

Love-the-Sport

The differences between Schaffer and De La Hoya have been played out in the media about issues of image and problems De La Hoya has with drugs and alcohol and other stuff.

I think this is simple minded media stupidity.

Boxing fans care about boxing.

The differences between Schaffer and De La Hoya are also potentially about the difference between MAKING MONEY vs. DEVELOPING FIGHTERS.

Oscar De La Hoya may have “issues.” But he is on the record as stating that several of his fighters were not “ready” for their big fights.

Oscar De La Hoya stated publicly that Canelo Alvarez was not ready for Floyd Mayweather.

Why did the Golden Boy do the Alvarez vs. Mayweather fight? Because it generated huge money. Great for promoters — not so great for Canelo Alvarez.

I believe the same mistakes were made — probably by Richard Schaffer — on several other fighters:

– Victor Ortiz … brought up too young, too quickly — he wilted under pressure

– Josesito Lopez … brought up in weight too fast — he performs brilliantly against Ortiz (coming up from 140 to 147) only to be embarrassed by Alvarez coming up to 154

Why did Golden Boy do these fights? To make money.

Great for the promoters. Not so good for Ortiz and Lopez.

I think a balance is better. Example would be Golovkin who has been positioned against modest competition. Golovkin has built up the knockouts. Golovkin has built up experience. Fans get to know Golovkin. Golovkin is becoming a star. This is better for boxing than overmatching these guys in dangerous fights unnecessarily.

Victor Ortiz had great talent. He may be nuts — but he had great talent. Better management would have gone slower and more careful. Everybody wins. Same with Lopez.

I hope Oscar does good things for boxers and boxing fans.

“Watch GoldenBoy, Arum, PR Boxing and Cotto promotions make a string of Great PPV Cards just to rub it in the Face of Scheafer and MoneyTeam Promotions…”

I agree with most of this … Although I don’t want these guy to be “rub it in the face” of each other anymore. That is bad for boxing.

Let me give you guys an optimistic scenario:

– Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has refused to sign with Top Rank
– Vasyl Lomenchenko has recently fought on HBO and he is about to fight on Showtime
– Miguel Cotto has recently fought on Showtime and he is about to fight on HBO

Golden Boy could sign these three guys and play a great new role in bringing great fights to boxing fans.

Chavez Jr. could fight Froch, Golovkin, Kovalev on HBO and then Stevenson and Pascal on Showtime. Lomenchenko could fight great fighters on both HBO and Showtime. Cotto can do great fights on both HBO and Showtime.

The key to good business is being a good middleman.

Golden Boy could play a role in the middle of both HBO and Showtime and bring great fights to boxing fans.

Floyd always fights on Mexican holidays and with low numbers he pulled in with Maidana he should really reconsider his relationship with Oscar. Oscar de La Hoya has the Latin market on lock.

Golden Boy is the brand. Schaefer is just “an errand boy sent by grocers clerks to collect a bill”. besides, how difficult can it be to put fight-cards together and sign quality fighters who crave the high-profile that GBP has to offer? this is not rocket science or computer engineering, it’s professional boxing and the GBP brand IS a top destination for any young and talented. even after the damage that DLH has done to it with his hard-partying antics. without the GBP brand, Schaefer is automatically demoted to the status of countless other “promotion” companies that struggle to even put an ESPN fight-card together. never mind HBO or Showtime.

We could be falling into the era of litigation…. Kathy Duva has already served Al Haymon re Superman….

I can see him going to court over this, but it’s funny, because did he not try to steal Manny from Arum in 2006, but back down when Arum threatened to drag him through the courts? (No pun intended over the ‘drag’ comments)!

Without his prizefighters what good is Golden Boy?

Mayweather was already sniffing round Mikey Garcia and SOG…. He’s probably already identified the half dozen or so guys he wants and with Schaefer at the helm of TMT he’ll probably get them.

Ellerbe said that while Golden Boy co-promoted Mayweather’s fights, it was arranged that way only because of Schaefer and his right-hand man, chief operating officer and chief marketing officer Bruce Binkow, who many expect will be leaving Golden Boy shortly in order to join Schaefer in his next endeavor.

“I’ve been in a hundred strategy sessions, I’ve been in a hundred meetings, I’ve been in a hundred planning sessions on our events and the people I’ve worked closely with are Richard and Bruce,” Ellerbe said. “I’ve never seen Oscar in one of those sessions, not once. We’ve never had one discussion about business. But I wish (Golden Boy) nothing but the best.”

Mayweather’s September opponent has not been determined. Ellerbe said Mayweather is on vacation following his May 3 victory against Marcos Maidana, and when he returns “we’ll figure it out. We don’t know who we’re fighting yet or where we’re fighting.”

Hours after Richard Schaefer’s Monday resignation as chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions following months of infighting with company co-founder/majority shareholder/president Oscar De La Hoya, pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. dumped the company.

Mayweather, whose fights generate the biggest pay-per-view numbers in the sport, has worked with Golden Boy on a fight-by-fight basis for all of his nine bouts since his 2007 blockbuster against De La Hoya, which set the all-time pay-per-view buy record at nearly 2.5 million subscriptions.

But Mayweather, whose own company, Mayweather Promotions, co-promoted his fights, only worked with Golden Boy because of Schaefer, with whom he has grown close over the years. Mayweather and De La Hoya do not like each other and have never hidden that fact.

Ed Mulholland/USA TODAY Sports
Floyd Mayweather only worked with Golden Boy Promotions because of his relationship with Richard Schaefer (right).
So when Mayweather, the junior middleweight and welterweight champion, returns for his next fight on Sept. 13, Golden Boy will no longer be involved, Mayweather Promotions chief executive Leonard Ellerbe told ESPN.com Monday night.

When asked if Mayweather would work with Golden Boy again without Schaefer, Ellerbe said, “Absolutely not.”

That is a big hit worth millions of dollars to De La Hoya’s company.

“We have a great working relationship with Richard Schaefer and that will never change,” Ellerbe said. “Richard is a good friend and a great businessman and an excellent promoter. Richard will have an impact in anything that he decides to do, a tremendous impact. He built that company from the ground up and did a phenomenal job. We’ve had a very close relationship for a number of years and worked hand-in-hand on a number of great fights.

“Mayweather Promotions will continue to promote Floyd’s fights and Floyd will continue to put on the biggest fights in boxing. I have a tremendous team and staff and we continue to expand year by year and we’re ready to go.”

Hi Dick Tiger.

My post was not meant to be a put down. Hope you didn’t take it that way. But, Amir is boasting to anyone who will listen he is now not only sitting at the top-table, but he’s also dining with the so -called ‘man!’

Haymon, likes to remain in the shadows. it’s his modus operandi, just like Alfred Hitchcock couldn’t help himself appearing in his own movies. It’s what people with power do. They choose to do the unexpected, which usually adds to their mystique and boosts their image (pardon the pun)!

If Haymon’s face was plastered across all the billboards like Oscar’s I doubt he’d be as talked about as he is! He’s so far not put many feet wrong and is ruling from the shadows like all the best gangster bosses did back in the days! Make waves, but don’t rock the boat and they will leave you alone to make hay whilst the sun shines.

As soon as he puts his head above the parapet and starts flexing his pecks, he will then become a target for all the snipers who are setting up their cross hairs waiting for a chance to take him out.
But, if he’s clever and not greedy he can still have a sizeable effect on the game, but without all the pain of an Arum or Oscar.

I would think this is all good for boxing …

But truth be told, nobody really knows what they are talking about on this board and even in the media.

There are contracts involved that nobody really knows the details, there are businesses involved that can change strategy, there are people involved who have millions and millions of dollars to work with to make something happen that could change everything and surprise everybody.

The optimistic scenario that would be best for boxing fans would be that Golden Boy works to aggressively recruit the “stars” who want to be independent of Top Rank and independent of Al Heyman — this means “stars” who want to be independent of HBO and independent of Showtime.

This would be guys like Miguel Cotto who have fought on both HBO and Showtime in the last 18 months. Miguel Cotto is a “star” who wants to be independent so that he has the flexibility to pick the best fight for him with the biggest money.

If Golden Boy aggressively recruited “stars” and up and coming “prospects” who’s contracts were ending with Top Rank and Al Heyman — then it would be great for boxing fans because we won’t have two sets of fighters on two different networks (HBO and Showtime).

On the other hand … who the f*ck knows what is really going to happen. Anybody who says they know is only guessing.

Record breaking PPV sales….I guess it’s only Floyd and Schafer are making tons of money. I feel bad for GBP. Our only last hope is Showtime needs to force Floyd to fight Pacqiuoa or else they should just drop Mayweather and stop accommodating his boring cherry picking boxing style. Let see what is going to be Floyd’s next move.

Good riddance to Schaefer. Sadly he’ll still be in the fight game. I’m sure he’ll be employed by Mayweather Promotions and Al Haymon while maintaining his shares in Golden Boy. I look forward to the day when he has zero shares in Golden Boy. The guy has zero class. Golden Boy and Top Rank will now end this stupid war, but if Mayweather Promotions doesn’t want to be a part of making fights with either? Good luck!!!

Have any of you ever seen Al Haymon at a prize fi9ght? I haven’t, all I’ve seen are his so called representative’s. It seems to me that fighters and their fans are good enough for Mr. Haymon to exploit for monetary gain, but are considered to far below his station for him to attend a prize in person.

Posted June 3, 2014 3:40 am

If you read any of Amir Khan’s quotes after his fight with Collazo, apparently he was sitting with Haymon, watching Mayweather and Maidana get it on, now they are such great friends.

NO WONDER OSCAR was reaching out and making overtures to Bob Arum. Oscar has little of the business acumen that fat boy Schaefer possesses and even less tact.

Schaefer probably devised his own exit strategy the moment Oscar soiled brand Golden Boy by appearing in panty hose, stockings and suspenders and lying about it.

I think Schaefer lost all faith in the coke head and his ability to do his job and could see it only going downhill with Oscar at the helm.

I’m not a fan of either but I think ODLH is a carcrash waiting to happen and when it does I would hate to be in the passenger seat!

@ anonymous –
I never said that Floyd was the best of his era. So don’t put words in my mouth. Scheafer was promoting fights for his own advantage just like Arum too.
They both with HBO and Showtime were prostituting boxing and taking it to the bank.
Sure money makes the world go round, and they didn’t care for the heirachy of “who’s next across the board” of matching fights. No way!, the way they see it, its who’s in their stable.
HBO and Showtime are like Arum and Schaefer, they hate each other.
@ anonymous – Boxing is bigger than Floyd, so don’t get too high strung about him or not.

Posted June 3, 2014 2:30 am

Now its time for Floyd to be real best and saviour of boxing. He should be able to survive this split and make record PPVs without golden boy promotions.

Schaefer needs to go back to his country and find a job. His visa should be cancelled immediately with ICE deporting him to his country. Finally, Oscar got sober and opens his eyes to Al Haymond and Schaefer corruption for the past years. Bob is an old far who will be leaving soon and Oscar will be richer than ever. It is stupid to continue a fight with Bob since he has nothing to loose and Oscar has a whole life in boxing ahead of him. Al Haymond would never start a promotion company RATS live underground and he is the biggest RAT in boxing.

Schaefer is bad for boxing! yea he put alot of hard work in promoting But he also depress fights from happening only because he had a bad gripe against Arum. And that goes as well with Arum too.
Oscar just didn’t step in earlier. It would’ve been fights against the other champions Not just from your stable.

WOW

What the hell is this bull. JC and Yuri Foreman both wore knee braces.

Sergio Martinez won’t be allowed to wear knee brace for Cotto fight on Saturday.

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KO’s) learned today that he won’t be permitted to wear a knee brace on his surgically repaired right knee for his title defense this Saturday night against Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KO’s) at Madison Square Garden, in New York. the New York State Athletic Commission won’t let Sergio wear the brace for some reason.

Apparently, nothing was said about him not being able to wear it in the contract language for the fight, and perhaps no one thought too much about it. But someone seems to have taken an issue with Sergio wearing the knee brace.

It could be that after watching Martinez working out on HBO’s recent Cotto vs. Martinez 24/7 last Saturday, they saw Martinez with the brace on his knee and decided that he shouldn’t be allowed to wear it during the fight, even though it’s not something that would benefit him for the fight. It would be merely used to protect his knee.

The question is was it Cotto’s team that raised a complaint about the brace, and if so, why? Would it help Cotto if Martinez’s knee gives out on him during the fight? Yes, it would. Whatever the case, hopefully it wasn’t one of Cotto’s team raising the complaint because it seems kind of silly to make a deal out of something a fighter is wearing to protect an injured leg.

Martinez will get to show that he can beat Cotto without the brace this Saturday night in front of a packed house at Madison Square Garden. As long as Sergio is able to move around the ring without his knee collapsing out from under him, he should be fine and we could see him win an easy decision or perhaps a knockout.

“I love New York City. It is one of my favorite cities in the world,” Martinez said. “I am so excited to be here and fight at one of the most famous arenas in the entire world. This is a dream come true for me. Camp was phenomenal. The gym was excellent, Miami was perfect. This is the best training camp that I have ever had in my entire career. I said it before and I am saying it again, there is no possible way that Cotto will make it out of the 9th round. Freddie Roach is excellent at telling jokes and this is one of the best jokes he has ever told.”

He doesnt need Scheafer. He just needs to do the right things like take care of himself, his family, and all his fighters with diligent, prayerful, loving, discipline. Make sure the best will eventually fight the best.

With Schaefer, Hayman, and Floyd out of the Goldenboy Picture, I hope HBO is smart enough to reopen their door to Oscar’s fighters. HBO would then be able to work with GB, TR,K2, and all of the other promoters to bring us the best fights, fights that the fans deserve to see. This would enable them to kick Showtimes ass.

He use to polite, soft talking, clean breath,LOL non spitting simple talks. The money side is mostly from the banks chains he started up.

Oscar has takeover the CEO work a month ago, he said he he going to. And this Richard resigning is because arum asked Oscar for a list two week ago.

I dont think Richard going to team up with hamon. Why? He said that he wants a new challenge, that could mean boxing as a business, and it’s not smart to form a company to chalange GBP where he own a huge amount of stock. That foolish to canceled out over 10 years of work.

And another thing Richard lieing about arum not calling him at all about manny fight last negoacition. And saying it arum that dont want fight talks. So what he going to say now? I lied and still we will not be having fight with top rank fighters.
And on the other side Oscar GBP fighter is fighting with top rank fighters, he going to look foolish as a kid that not his style. He don’t want pressure.

Schaffer was nothing special. No more than a fricking lineup manager in baseball is something special. The issue is whether he is gonna reincarnate himself in parternship with Al Haymon. That is the guy that needs to be cold shouldered and shut out of the game. HBO and Showtime need to learn from Dana White and the UFC. Fightes in the UFC fight for tens, not hundreds, tens of thousands of dollars, and if they don’t like it they get cut and sent back to indian casino’s to fight for hundreds of dollars. They cannot be the monopoly that the UFC is or lowball fighers like they do. But they can at least grow a pair of balls and offer their subscribers a better product. The boxing business scene reminds me of our own innefficent government.

Seriously the ones who need to pull their heads out of their a$$es are the executives at showtime and HBO. Do they not know that they are the ones the call that should be calling the shots? Why the F&*k have they kissed Al Haymon’s a$$ after having kissed Don King’s a$$ for so many years. Most of these promotors do not even promote much. They just book a fight in vegas and let the casino’s promote it and collect a 7 figure licensing fee from HBO or SHowtime. The two big networks need to meet with the promotors and be firm with them. Managers should not even be needed nowadays. HBO and Showtime need to pay out for quality inter promotional fights. And Fu*king lowball BOTH promotors big time over and over again if all they want to do is make in house fights. Where else are they gonna take their fights? ESPN? Telemundo. The networks hold all the power but refuse to wield it. The promotors do this to us because the networks enable them and allow it.
