A few days ago, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum - in an interview with BoxingScene.com - questioned the existence of powerful boxing manager Al Haymon.
Haymon, who manages/advises over a 100 boxers, is the founder of the Premier Boxing Champions banner.
There are many fights to be made between Arum and Haymon - but the veteran promoter is not convinced that Haymon is a real person.
Haymon stays away from the press, he's rarely photographed and he's usually missing from ringside.
His biggest client, five division world champion Floyd Mayweather, gave him the label of 'The Ghost' several years ago.
Arum is likely joking, or is he?
Arum and Haymon sat down together, back in 2015, to finalize the richest fight in the history of the sport - Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao.
Despite their face to face meeting three years ago, Arum does not view Haymon as a normal human being.
“Nobody sees him, nobody talks to him. It is not normal. When was the last time you sat and talked to him? Never. What kind of craziness is this? You can’t equate it to doing business with a normal person,” Arum told the LA Times.
There are two major fights that Arum would like to finalize - Terence Crawford vs. Errol Spence and Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Mikey Garcia.
Haymon handles Spence and Garcia.
Arum, who has an exclusive content deal with ESPN, is even willing to come together with Showtime or FOX (who have deals with Haymon) to have a joint pay-per-view event.
But Arum doubts that type or scenario would ever happen. In his opinion, Haymon has other plans in mind.
“That’s not where Haymon is at,” Arum said. “He’d rather overpay his fighters, keep them to himself, have them fight once a year. … It’s a peculiar way to run a business."
