Schaefer, Haymon To Meet on Robert Guerrero's Future

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has informed BoxingScene.com that he will soon sit down with adviser Al Haymon to discuss the future of multi-division champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-2-1, 18KOs).

Guerrero has been inactive since last May's twelve round decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Earlier this year, Guerrero's lawyer initiated the process to break his promotional contract with Golden Boy through an arbitration with the California State Athletic Commission. Guerrero, through his attorney, claimed the contract he signed prior to last May's fight with Mayweather was illegal and violated the Muhammad Ali Act.

But the California State Athletic Commission denied Guerrero's request for an arbitration. The CSAC directed both parties to settle their dispute in New York - because in their opinion the contract agreement is governed under New York law.

Since January's legal skirmish, the Guerrero front was very quiet - until a few days ago when Guerrero joined the voluminous stable of Haymon. Guerrero is still managed by Bob Santos and Luis DeCubas Jr.

Haymon advises three of the four champions at welterweight - Mayweather, Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter. He also advises welterweights Keith Thurman, Paulie Malignaggi, Luis Collazo, Victor Ortiz and Devon Alexander. 

Schaefer hopes to sit with Haymon and resolve any outstanding issues with Guerrero - and then get Guerrero in gear for his return against a durable opponent.

"I didn't really have a lengthy conversation with Al - as it relates to that contractual situation. I would hope so [that everything is now resolved]. I think he signed [Guerrero] sometime late last week, so I haven't had a chance to focus on that. The focus I had and Al had was to finalize April 19th, April 26th and May 3rd. That was really the first priority," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

"Now in the next week or so I'm going to sit down with Al and see how we can work out this situation with Guerrero. I never really fully understood the issue anyway. I'm really proud with what I've done with Robert Guerrero. He was asking for a Mayweather fight for a long time, as you know, and we finally we got it. He decided to bring in Al and I hope that I can work something out, to get that situation resolved."

"I never had any issues with Guerrero and I have no idea what I could have done differently. I think Robert is a great person, a great family and I hope to see him back in the ring sooner than later."

[QUOTE=jrrod02;14365072]We must remember that boxers aren't exactly the sharpest knives in the drawer. [/QUOTE] Neither are many boxing fans. It's their money that keeps the gravy train flowing for leeches like Haymon and co.

I don't know what these clowns are meeting about. Guerrero got seven fans, how are you supposed to make truckloads of money from this guy? I don't even know what all these signings with Haymon are all about when he's…

Mayweather took this guy's confidence, soul and manhood. He is just very insecure nowadays ducking fighters left and right. Just a very confused individual with low self esteem.
