    Garry Russell is doing that to himself he doesn't love the sport has gone on record saying so and sees it only as a job. It's his choice to only fight once a year. Arum tries to keep fights in-house as well but I don't see people crying about that.

    Yes.

    Think about it... it’s “double bubble” for Al if he keeps it “in-house”.

    He gets two paydays, basically.

    How he got that huge lump of financial backing I will never know. It’s obvious what he is doing.

    It was obvious what Don King was doing and yet fighters still kept signing with him. He still signs fighters. When Jarrell Miller got busted for PEDs Sky were talking about possible replacements and Johnny Nelson mentioned one fighter and said 'He's a Don King fighter'. And I just thought 'Really? In 2019? After what he did to Tyson and so many others?'

    U beat me to it. All this bull**** and hating on Al Haymon is ridiculous! Let's talk about Bob Arum who had nothing but stars and legends leave him for mismanaging, like Mayweather, Cotto, De La Hoya, Garcia and Pac to name a few. Who has left Haymon? Obviously the fighters are happy, but all these all of a sudden knowledgeable people would like to lead on that's not the case. Bob Arum for years kept it in house, blocking Haymon. That's how that beef between them two got started. So Haymon returned the favor when his stable of fighters became better. All this commotion because two of PBC heavyweights loss means PBC fighters are going down LOL? GTFOH! Al Haymon fighters at other weight classes is still doing well. People clearly hate Haymon because he has the best stable of fighters in boxing.

    I couldn't agree more it's pathetic the amount of irrational hate the man gets. Is he perfect no but he's not the worst guy in boxing like people in this thread would lead you to believe.

    Exactly my point! I've never heard no Al Haymon fighters say they wasn't happy. Yet Arum top fighters left him and De La Hoya top two fighters expressed their beef with him publicly last year. Al Haymon take care of his fighters.

    Can't we just agree that it's not good no matter who does it? If Arum does it, it's bad for boxing. If Haymon does it, same thing. Since when do promoters have fans and people picking sides lol.

    Been happening for years. Remember Quillin, he also prevented Stevenson-Kovalev.

    Haymon is good at getting mediocre fighters big paydays that they wouldn’t see much of otherwise. But if your ceiling is much higher, you will have a difficult time reaching it under Haymon. Plus he does the sport no good with this management style of most reward, least risk. Moves his fighter’s far too cautiously. Losing is part of the sport, not the end of a career.

    Gary Russell, Vanes, Stevenson has said he was unhappy with the inactivity, similar to what Vanes complained about. There were more, but Haymon hasn’t had many fighters on the level of Pacquiao, Hoya, Mayweather who can move however they want with little repercussions.

    Jamal Herring left Al Haymon for Top Rank. Citing the reason was 3 fights per year ontop of good money.
