You've seen him. He is in the ring at almost every fight. A middle-aged black guy with close-cropped, salt-n-pepper hair. He is usually with a younger guy who appears to be his son.

He is somehow connected to many top fighters. He is a boxing fixture....WHO IS THAT GUY?

I have ask the same Question time and time again, I see him and his son in the ring all the time, And i know the younger looking one is his son because they look exactly alike but know one seem to know his name, His alway with all the top black fighters in the ring...Am guessing that could be Al Haymon or something.

Here he is at Mayweather-Hatton.

Mayweather. Andrade. Taylor. Williams. Forrest.

If I had to guess, I'd go with Al Haymon. (Never seen him before.)

I went crazy trying to guess/see who this guy was, I even post a picture of his son at one of forrest fights (asking who) he was. They get to be in the ring with all the top fighters talking to them, laughing with them etc

Something just click one day and i thought it might be the Al Haymon guy that i alway hear about but i have never seen a picture of him to confirm what he looks like.

I think (99% sure) it's Al Haymon.

Al Haymon and sons. He has 2 boys if you want to know about him Google him. Hard to find pictures about him but he was rated #5 most important person in boxing last year. He has a wide variety of entertainment company and manages or advises boxers like Paul Williams, Librado Andrade, Vernon Forrest, Jermain Taylor, Floyd Mayweather, etc.

There was actually an article about this guy in a boxing magazine recently. It's funny because he just shows up to the fights with a flag (which he all owns) and hopes he'll be able to carry it into the ring, so he's generally not hired pre-fight. I think I also read that he may get paid just enough to cover his expenses to the fight.

Yer I have seen Al Haymon he came into the ring after Forrest beat Mosley for the first time and was hugging Forrest. Also see him in the crowd behind the ring before, most recently Berto vs Trabant. I could get a screenshot of him he is black and quite slim with a receding hair/afro line.

Trust me that guy ain't Al Haymon just a representative for him.

Speaking of which, what happened to Dr. Margaret Goodman? The MILF-ish ring doctor with the glasses and red hair?

She must have quit. It used to be her and Flip Homansky.

Additionally, Marc Ratner is with the UFC now? He used to be so visible in boxing. What is Larry Hazzard doing?

That's booty.. they hire a flag waiver for every fight.. It's always the same guy too, I've seen him wave the Filipines, The USA, Mexico, and Armenian flags all at different events!

You are right and I am wrong I guess The real question is who is AL Haymon?

HAYMON LAYS LOW, EARNINGS RUN HIGH AS GOOSE FRONTS

Q. It seems I hear the name Al Haymon all the time, with Mayweather, Paul Williams, Antonio Tarver, Vernon Forrest, et. al. But I never see him doing internet chats or hogging a microphone at press conferences. Is the "Man Behind The Curtain" as you call him and why so secretive? Any reason he uses Dan Goossen as his front man? ELMO CHANCESKY, YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO.

A. Al is media shy, I guess. He didn't even appear at the Boxing Writer's Awards to get his manager of the year trophy. My source, Deeptrout, reports a rumor that Haymon was a shadow adviser to President Richard M. Nixon when the Watergate scandal broke and has had a distrust of the media ever since. Why he uses Goossen? Maybe Al likes guys who wear cheap polyester suits or garish neckties, I don't know.

But their San Fernando Valley (Van Nuys, to be specific) offices are near each other. Someone else told me that Big Al is this close with Time Warner CEO Dick Parsons and that Kery Davis is an Ivy League prot***39401; of Haymon's, but I don't know if those are facts.

Bottom line is Haymon gets top dollar for himself and his boxers, so does his penchant for privacy matter? I can tell you his brother, Bobby Haymon was a decent 10-round fighter out of Cleveland who used to spar with someone named Thomas Hearns. Wonder whatever happened to that Hearns dude?
