Questions about the "Cold War"???


. . . . . I'd appreciate any insight to the latest events at Golden Boy. I know DLH has been laughed at for various reasons but is it possible he wants to do the right thing by the fans? Is this just about his ego wanting to gain control of his company from Richard Schaffer or does he really care about the fans? Why does Schaffer not want to do business with Bob Arum? Is it because Arum is so difficult or is it that Richard wants to make sure he stays on Haymon and Floyd's good side? Did Arum screw over Floyd and Schaffer equally? Seems kind of, I dunno, improbable.

. . . . Is Arum really afraid of Pac losing to Floyd? I don't see how. It isn't like Floyd is going to knock him out. I won't even ask about the other side of that equation as there are I'm sure many legitimate reasons why Floyd won't fight Manny. A good one is Pac taking money back to the his homeland and as he doesn't live in Switzerland or the Caymon Islands that certainly is an important concern for a patriotic American like Floyd. Of course you can't minimize Uncle Roger's influence on that issue

. . . . . As a fan I can think of a dozen spectacular fights that could happen if there was no "Cold War" . Would it be better for DLH to wait after Floyd retires to begin to make his move? I know Haymon and Floyd will continue to be a force in boxing but without those $100 to $200 mil ppv's Haymon might have less leverage. I'm sure Schaffer can be replaced as Oscar says but who does Richard take with him??

>>>>> Would appreciate any thoughts because this whole thing seems preposterous though maybe not as bad as gridlock in Congress or denial of Climate Change it's right up there on my list until I find something else to be offended by.
