I wonder if Burner has an opinion on this particular comment.
Haymon is a big reason why Paul is on HBO. He has big ties with Greenburg and HBO. I think Goosen tried to make Paul a country wide attraction and it didnt pan out as planned.
Since 2006 he has fought in Cali, Vegas, Conn, and New Jersey. But mostly California. He started out fighting down south and it shouldve stayed that way. But had he not been in Cali he would've never sparred Margarito which lead to his title shot.
