help me understand.

think about it, al haymon is connected to Mayweather, enough said. You could say people are saying hes trying to control boxing blah blah blah, but realistically Arum has been doing that for years and no ones said a word. Also he's a man that never really shows himself, always working behind the scenes, never has any sort of public image, thats risky because if you don't tell people about yourself, other people will just spread bullshit.

although I havent actually seen any hate? then again it is 5am here and am wondering why am awake...

There shouldn't be much hate for him. He DOES make sure that his fighters are paid, so the people crying about fighters not making what they should be making...cant complain about Haymon.

Yup. People can say what they want, but if he's helping the boxers get paid what they're worth, then more power to him.

People hate other people who have power, influence, etc. Its as simple as that. Haymon is a power player in boxing with or without Floyd and the work he does for his clients is obviously driving the comeptition/haters crazy

I think the dopest thing about Haymon is that you hardly ever see him. He makes boxing about the fighters and forthat reason alone, I have a lot of respect for him. He's not always hogging the lime light and taking attention away from the fighters.

I havent seen any hate but i do have some questions about Haymon, one of which being why he only manages African-American fighters? (and Danny Garcia)

Yeah he just gets Sam Watson and his sons to do that for him...

Great video commentator with rare picture of Al Haymon and the fighters that he manages. He has become today's Don King, seriously, but totally unlike Don, keeps a very low profile:

u know...they get a lot of shit from fans who are tired of seeing them...but they're good guys who want to make sure that their fighters know they have their back. how often do u see other promoters who don't even show up to their fighters fights at all. they just send them out for slaughter and leave them hanging.

I actually posted a nice article on Al Hayman a while back here: http://www.fighthype.com/community/index.p...c=28082&hl=

I actually believe that behind TMT is Al Hayman. Floyd knows boxing and 50 knows entertainment but Al has been there and done that for decades. He's also unbelievably smart and obviously his people skills are on the up and up. Nobody screws Arum off money but Al let's put it this way. The way Gamboa got out, I smell Al was behind it. I am sure Bob is mad at Al mostly because of how Floyd got out of Bob Arum.

So TMT is perfect for Al because he's the boss but he's not the lead figure, instead it's Floyd and 50 the most known faces in combat sports and entertainment. That's pure genius!

Good find, Jack, thanks. All I had seen of him previously were few photos here and there, most of which later turned out to be not of him. Some even passed off/posted hate comments on some images of Sam Watson, as those of Al Haymon...LOL.

Nah man..

They dont care about the fighters knowing "they got their back" they just wanna be seen on TV imo. An to be seen by the fighter like they got their back, you can't tell who's "got ur back" when ur winning anyway. That gets revealed during a setback. Not to mention that they aren't the promoters, Al, GBP and/or Arum is... They jus sum dudes who's dad works for a manager... They might be "good guys", I haven't met em. However I have come across a similar type of character before, the hanger on, reflected glory loving, camera mugging attention whore who's presence actually brings nothing practical to the situation.

I recall Dawson saying in the 24/7, "going into the Pascal fight, I had a 20 strong entourage, after that fight they were all gone". I may be wrong, but I feel like these kids are jus some "entourage guys". Al only needs Sam there to rep for him, his sons jus getting in on it...

True, promoters may not show up to every fight, but that doesn't mean they have no representation there. It's just their rep either doesn't have a ring pass, or doesn't feel the need to all get in the ring an try get all up in the post fight interview.

Saying that.. If had their opportunities, you'd prob see my grinning face behind the winner too, fuck.gif
