De la Hoya and Schaefer at odds on future Golden Boy relations with Top Rank

Earlier this week, Golden Boy President Oscar de la Hoya told the LA Times that “If anyone with Golden Boy has any differences with Bob (Arum), it’s on them. I have nothing against Bob and I feel making fights with Bob is beneficial to the fans and the market.” Oscar also commented that his reportedly turbulent relationship with Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer is now “peaches and cream.”

However, today the Times reports that Schaefer has expressed “no interest” in working with Top Rank. “Last I checked, I was CEO,” Schaefer told The Times. “Unless Oscar wants to change that…I’ve been running Golden Boy since the beginning. If he wants to change that, since he’s the majority shareholder, and decides he wants to fire me, I can’t stop that.”
