Mayweather To Promote Own Fight For First Time Since '06 After Schaefer's Departure
Published June 4, 2014
LAND OF OPPORTUNITY? Top Rank boxer Timothy Bradley said that he "wasn't sure if he might see more interesting and lucrative fights" following Schaefer's departure. Bradley: "Just because one person leaves the company, then all of the sudden we’ll all get along? Business is all about the relationship." In California, Leighton Ginn wrote if Schaefer "truly was the road block that kept Golden Boy and Top Rank from pitting their fighters against each other, then his resignation could open up the door for many fights that fans have wanted to see, but couldn’t be made because of the 'cold war.'" Bradley "could be one of the fighters to benefit" from Schaefer's departure (Palm Springs DESERT SUN, 6/3).
