 HAYMON: GOLDEN BOY CAN'T SUE ME; I HAVE A RELEASE!
By Scott Shaffer

Boxing's most powerful manager/advisor, Al Haymon has filed his first response to a $300 million lawsuit by Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions. Haymon claims that Golden Boy has already given him a release of all claims and therefore has no case. Haymon told the California federal court that an arbitrator is poised to decide this very issue, so the court should stay the litigation until the arbitrator issues a ruling.  Haymon says Golden Boy issued the release to him as part of a settlement reached over the departure of Richard Schaefer from Golden Boy.  The settlement agreement contains an arbitration clause, and Haymon brought the issue before the arbitrator in April.  Golden Boy filed suit in May.  The arbitrator, according to Haymon's court filing, will hold a hearing on July 29th to determine whether the release Golden Boy's bars current claims.
