Next week will be a busy one for Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, who is not only promoting the May 3 Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Marcos Maidana pay-per-view event, but is also working on a number of upcoming bouts.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he plans to impose his size on Marcos Maidana and take away the Argentine slugger’s best attribute — to punch hard — and that counterparts Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley fought like amateurs in their recent clash.
Miguel Cotto believes that not having to focus on weight loss will serve as an advantage heading into his middleweight debut against RING champ Sergio Martinez on June 7 at Madison Square Garden on HBO Pay Per View.
Two-time world title challenger Martin Murray, THE RING’s No.7 rated middleweight, forced Ghanaian Ishmael Tetteh to retire after six relatively one-sided sessions in South Africa on Wednesday.
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is most certainly sold on IBF welterweight titlist Shawn Porter, even proposing a possible match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the future.
