I am actually surprised that fighthype didn't write that, who knows maybe Ben and Percy have even more insight as far as Al Haymon goes

This article is character assassination. They are bascially saying that Al is bad for the sport. Which is weird because Arum does the same thing. He is a promoter that puts his managers with his boxers. Al Haymon is doing something that promoters and managers hate, he is paying his boxers. Boxing is run mostly by Jews and white men. When they see a threat like Haymon is, he is getting all the credit, taking all the young talent and making them RICH! They do not get a cut.l The same thing happen with Suge Knight and Death Row, he was taking so much money from the major record companies that they had to put an end to it. Al is doing what a promoter or whatever the hell he is considers himself is suppose to do, make his fighters MONEY. I like that. He is Harvard educated and being a smart business is even better. I hope more guys run to Al Haymon, I am tired of the promoters and managers getting all the money and the boxers are left with 0. Pacquiao should sign with Haymon maybe he would get bigger purses in all the money he is suppose to get. This is a BS article and a spin. Now they are going to shift the blame to Al Haymon for the Pac and May fight not happening. It is not Arum's fault but Al Haymon. BS! But thanks for the article.

Al Haymon is taking money out of the promoters pocket and placing it into the hands of the fighters. I'm sure Arum Considers him the devil

Not much new info regarding Al Haymon as it relates to boxing. Some good info on his background from the music industry however. I will say, however, that he's NOT standing in the way of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. Everyone around Floyd believes 100% that Pacquiao is an EASY fight, so they're all more than eager to make the fight a reality.

From the article it seems that promoters in the sport are looking at his dealings from a legal standpoint. Have you heard anything/ what are your thoughts?

In general, I think it was a decent article and definitely, don't see it as character assassination. Then again, I am of the belief, most, if not all people/situations are like pancakes; no matter how flat, they have two sides to them.

Did you just create a parallel b/t Al Haymon & Suge Knight? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wtf.gif)
