Mayfield’s Manager Arrested in Alleged Murder Plot

by David P. Greisman

Marlon Sullivan, manager of junior welterweight contender Karim Mayfield, is not in Atlantic City to see Mayfield face Thomas Dulorme this weekend. That’s because Sullivan was arrested in California as one of 26 people facing federal charges, according to the San Francisco Weekly.

“Sullivan is accused of involvement in a murder-for-hire conspiracy; gun trafficking; a drug-trafficking conspiracy; and the sale of fraudulent credit cards,” the newspaper reported.

The 29-year-old is allegedly part of a larger case that also brought about the arrest of a well-known California state senator.

Mayfield, reached on Wednesday by the newspaper, had this reaction: “Oh, what the hell? He was supposed to be meeting me out here today.”

Mayfield later the Weekly that Sullivan wasn’t officially his manager but was about to become so.

The Behind the Gloves boxing website spoke with Mayfield for clarification: “Though Mayfield told another outlet that there was no official paperwork tying the two to each other, Mayfield agreed that Sullivan played a large part in his recent success and was who his promoter Top Rank dealt with when arranging fights.”

Illegal gun sale, drug trafficking, fraudulent credit card sale, and last but not least : complicity to attempted murder (read the [URL="http://www.sfgate.com/file/757/757-complaint_affidavit_14-70421-nc.pdf"]full affidavit here[/URL]). That guy will be behind bars for a long time.
