This article from a fine writer seems to be really about nothing. The writer, who knows a lot about boxing, and has the tools to find out whatever he wants to, says distinctly that he was unable to find any evidence at all of two Haymon fighters ever fighting each other, after a thorough search.
So all we have is the ubiquitous Schaefer, who says, well.. it doesn't matter what happened (or didn't happen) until now, but you will be seeing two Haymon fighters often fighting one another....... The reason he gives is that Haymon has so many fighters that if they don't fight one another they'll be sitting twiddling their thumbs for lack of opponents-although this has not been apparent in the career of any of them so far. Apparently, according to Schaefer, Haymon has cornered the market on fighters...... all the other hundreds and hundreds of managers don't have any fighters.........
I'm surprised at Reeno, he usually picks a thoroughly readable subject. And another point, he right away, to set up Schaefer in golden highlights, labels the Haymon fighters not fighting one another as a "myth", even though he immediately afterwards proves that according to his best research, it is no myth.
I'll say it again...I'm surprised.
