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

Evgeny Gradovich will be defending his IBF featherweight championship against Jayson Velez. They will fight on the Terence Crawford vs Ray Beltran undercard on November 29, 2014 in Omaha, Nebraska. The fight will be the co-main event and it will air on HBO. Gradovich is promoted by Top Rank Promotions, and Velez is promoted by Cotto Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions.

The Gradovich-Velez fight is the second fight that Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions made happened since Schaefer step down as C.E.O. of Golden Boy.

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…
Dan Goossen passes away

September 29, 2014
The boxing world is stunned that Dan Goossen the promoter from Goossen Tutor is gone at the age of 64 years old. His birthday was this upcoming Friday October 3 and he would of turned 65 years old. He passed away today from an aggressive form of liver cancer. To me, 64 years old is young. I can relate to cancer because my grandma died of cancer but in a different type of body. On August 28, 2014, my grandma died from stage four of colon cancer. From there the cancer went to the lungs. The doctors told her and her family that she only had four months to live but unfortunately they were wrong. My grandma died at the age of 74 years old. She left behind three loving sons, an ex-husband and a current husband. Cancer is a disease that…Continue
STATEMENT FROM THE GOOSSEN FAMILY
"It is with overwhelming regret that we announce the passing of Dan Goossen, 64, from complications relating to liver cancer. The sudden news of his diagnosis was very much a private matter and his final days were spent surrounded by his family and closest friends. Sadness is difficult to escape as we grieve his passing, however we are filled with pride by the fact that Dan Goossen battled this aggressive illness with boundless strength and the last days of his life were fought and lived with unflinching bravery, pure love and grace beyond measure."
Arrangements are pending and details will be announced in the next few…
