al haymon must have the fbi payed off? every time you read about him they say he's a so called advicer but secretly a promotor slash manager which is illegal here in the states. al haymon is really ruining boxing with a lot of shady dealings. stealing fighters from top rank and other company's like golden boy. al haymon is a scum. I also read hbo doesn't want nothing to do with him.
