Schaefer Confirms: Matthysse Now With Al Haymon

by Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer confirmed an earlier story posted on BoxingScene.com, regarding junior welterweight contender Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31KOs) signing a deal with influental adviser/manager Al Haymon. Matthysse is facing IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (31-1-1, 16KOs) in a catch-weight bout on May 18th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Going in Haymon's direction would certainly assist Matthysse, the WBC's mandatory challenger, in his quest to secure a fight with full WBC champ Danny Garcia, also handled by Haymon. However, Matthysse has a tough task ahead with Peterson.

"I can confirm. Matthysse will still remain with Mario Arano, but he did bring in Al Haymon as an adviser," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

You know he did this so his top fighters won't have to fight Matthysse.
