Al Haymon signs super featherweight contender Rances Barthelemy

Rances Barthelemy has joined #TeamHaymon, adding to the growing stable of top fighters.

Super featherweight contender Rances Barthelemy is the latest fighter to ink up with super adviser Al Haymon, joining an ever-increasing stable that has added several names just this year.

Recently, Haymon has added Adonis Stevenson, Chad Dawson, Luis Collazo, and Lamont and Anthony Peterson, among others. He also has the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Marcos Maidana, Paulie Malignaggi, Adrien Broner, Lucas Matthysse, Danny Garcia, Leo Santa Cruz, Keith Thurman, Deontay Wilder, and many more.

Barthelemy (19-0, 12 KO) briefly held the IBF super featherweight title, but the belt was returned to Argenis Mendez when the sanctioning body rightly ruled that Barthelemy had knocked Mendez out with a shot that came well after the bell.

There has been talk of a Mendez-Barthelemy rematch, which the IBF ordered when they overturned the decision. The 27-year-old Cuban has been a Friday Night Fights regular, but will likely make his way to Showtime in the near future now that he's with Haymon.
