Who is Al Haymon?

Who is Al Haymon? Declan Warrington profiled the mysterious but influential figure in boxing

This profile was originally published in Boxing News magazine as we ask who is Al Haymon?

IT perhaps says much about Al Haymon, and the mystery and shadows behind which he works, that Sam Watson is often wrongly believed to be him.

That, as yet, the recently established Haymon Sports has no official function. That in a sport where television and exposure is almost everything – where there is an embedded culture in which unnecessary figures and sycophants shamelessly vie for the briefest role in a ring-walk or appearance in the ring – Haymon is almost always nowhere to be seen.
