Mayweather Eyes Dropping Golden Boy if Schaefer Goes

By Rick Reeno

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. chimed in on the internal rift in Golden Boy Promotions between CEO Richard Schaefer and company President Oscar De La Hoya.

Golden Boy has co-promoted Mayweather's last nine fights. They will co-promote, along with Mayweather Promotions, Floyd's fight on Saturday night against Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

For several months, there has been tension between Schaefer and De La Hoya regarding the direction of their company.

If Schaefer is fired from his position or leaves, Mayweather is more than happy to hire him.

"Richard knows there is always a home over here. We would love to work with him hand in hand. If he has any problems over there. That's the company that we know Richard Schaefer built. Richard and Leonard [Ellerbe] work hand in hand. We're working hand in hand already. We would love to work with Richard. He is a great guy, a great father," Mayweather said. 

"Richard knows the door is always open, we look at him as family. We're stronger together than apart. And I think we are going to continue to build with each other and grow with each other."

And Mayweather also made it clear that if Schaefer leaves his working relationship with Golden Boy was likely over - which is no surprise because Mayweather hasn't exactly been on friendly terms with De La Hoya.

"Probably not, probably not [regarding working with Golden Boy is Schaefer leaves]. The reason why I'm working with Golden Boy is because of Richard Schaefer," Mayweather said.

Lets be honest, I respect Oscar as a business man but had it not been for Schaefer and with Oscar having his issues and having to check into rehab...GBP probably would have folded by now. Schaefer has the "KNOW HOW"…

[QUOTE=McLeechin;14484760]Unfortunately, stupid people can't understand this. When Arum says he wants Manny vs Floyd, Schaefer says he will not do business with Bob, and still those dummies blame Bob Arum.[/QUOTE] you hit the bullseye!!! it is Floyd himself and Schaefer…
