Oscar De La Hoya said if anyone on his staff isn't about making the "best fight" for the fans then he would have to clean house, and that is what he did today. According to Dan Rafael at espn.com today, Oscar got rid of his COO Armando Gaytan, Executive Vice President Raul Jaimes and Vice President of Marketing Nicole Sparks.
In the last couple of weeks Richard Schaefer left and then followed his right hand man Bruce Binkow. Now Schaefers wife is Jaimes aunt, Gaytan is married to Nicole Becerra who is Schaefer's longtime executive assistant and Sparks reported to Binkow. We can't have no insiders feeding Schaefer and Binkow "private" stuff now can we?
Looks like Oscar De La Hoya means business. It seems like Goldenboy Promotions and Toprank Promotions really will start working together now huh? Still one slight problem. Who is going to get Showtime and HBO to play nice now?
