HBO Parts Ways With Golden Boy Promotions In Surprise Move
Published March 18, 2013
Notified by Hershman of the stance this morning, Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer phoned Espinoza to ask whether Showtime would be interested in a planned June 22 bout between Broner and Paulie Malignaggi, previously assumed to be headed to HBO. "I told him what happened and his answer was brief: 'Count me in,'" Schaefer said. "There was no hesitation. If you are a network which is involved in boxing and you get the opportunity to be involved with Adrien Broner, it's like Christmas in March" (Bill King, Senior Staff Writer).
