    If this is true and I'm Oscar, I'm firing Schaffer's ass. How can the "CEO" of the company pull sneaky shit like this not in the best interest for GoldenBoy Promotions.

    How is being able to promote fighters one fight at a time not in the best interest of the company if you're attracting fighters to fight under the promotion that don't want to make a long-term commitment to a promotion?

    It's true but it was hardly a secret (or attempted to be kept a secret) from Oscar. Simply Al putting his guys in the best position possible.

    because Golden Boy would lose almost all of its power in the boxing business and Schaefer has aided and abetted that

    if Oscar fires Schaefer, Schaefer does not have to abide by his no compete clause, thus why it's in Schaefer's interest to be fired but not Oscar's

    Oscar is the main shareholder of the company and its his company.

    Schaefer been doing sneaky deals with Haymon behind Oscar's back.

    Garcia, Quillin, Broner, Floyd, Adonis all Haymon fighters not GB however GB has been promoting their fights.

    Only two big names GB has under direct contract are Canelo and Mares.

    Oscar was so out of it that he didn't realize something that more or less common knowledge?
