A wall stays that separates competitors under contract to promoters Top Rank and Golden Child to those handled by Al Haymon.
The unfortunate fact is that a number of the great fights that could be made are scuttled before they begin because, for the most part, the sides don’t do business together
Timothy Bradley’s very first order of business is to beat Brandon Rios on Saturday.
It’s particularly unfortunate for competitors like WBO champion Timothy Bradley and Brandon Rios, who fulfill Saturday on the UNLV school in exactly what figures to be an amusing HBO welterweight title battle.
Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions has a number of competitors who would be possibly great matches for not only the Bradley-Rios winner, but also the loser.
Think of, for a second, a Bradley-Keith Thurman bout or a Rios-Shawn Porter match. Highly promoted prospect Errol Spence Jr. might make his name and vault into fame by defeating the winner. A Rios-Robert Guerrero bout would be fun, as would a Bradley-Danny Garcia match.
