I have talked to alot of fighters that want to sign to Al Haymon and for one main reason .. Al Haymon Maximizes your earnings. Sure he can when it is about 30 fighters. What happens when he has over 100 (which he does now)? Do you think Showtime and ......... well ... that is all he has right now unless his NBC deal comes through. Anyways, how much money do you think Showtime will have in their budget to pay 100 fighters in a years time? There is only so much money to go around. Please don't think "everyone" will be making millions of dollars fighting for Al Haymon. Yes you will make some "good" money but not millions.
Point Number 2 ......... Do all of Al Haymon's fighters REALLY think they are the "A" side? Listen to me .. the "A" side is the fighters who Al wants to build up .. they are his "star" fighters. Then there is the "B" side. That is the…Continue
A great fit! Canelo Alvarez & HBO Boxing
It's no surprise that Oscar moved Canelo over to HBO so he doesn't have to share the PPV money with Floyd Mayweather. Even though Floyd has the better PPV numbers it's also speculated the only reason why is because Showtime would not budge on…Continue

I will never forget the interview that Chris Robinson of Hustleboss.com did with Abel Sanchez last year. In the interview he asked what was some of the sparring sessions like for GGG Gennady Golovkin at Big Bear. Able said he liked it when Angulo would come spar because he would try to land bombs and take GGG out. Never happened though. Then he went on to say that Sergey Kovalev was afraid to spar with GGG.
In another interview Able said that GGG dropped Kovalev in sparring. I believe it was a body shot. If that is the case then you know Bernard Hopkins will take advantage of Kovalev not being able to take body shots well. On a side note, that also let's you know just how hard GGG is hitting people. The guy has super strength and it shows in the ring. Hopefully we will see him in some more tough…Continue
Floyd "Money" Mayweather did a video awhile back letting us know that his Daughter Iyanna Mayweather will eventually be the CEO of Mayweather Promotions. He is gearing up and teaching her the ropes and the dirty side of the business. Even though Leonard Ellerbe is currently the CEO, he will only have a few more years left before Floyd's daughter takes the reign of the company. Check out the interview below .....
Even with the passing of the late great Dan Goosen, I have been swamped with questions about Andre Ward and is he free from his contract because of this tragic day. Talk about bad timing, this man family can't even morn properly without seeing press clippings about Andre Ward contract situation. Well let me make it short and clear to those who may not know, Andre Ward belongs to the company Goosen-Tutor promotions, not Dan Goosen the person. Unless it says in the contract "In case of demise" he is free that wont be happening anytime soon. I'm sure the company has a successor ready to take the helm and continue the legacy of Dan Goosen.~Kevin…
