Golden Boy requests trial against Haymon pushed to March 2017

July 30, 2016

The lawyers for Golden Boy have requested a continuance in the antitrust trial against Al Haymon.  The date, originally set for the end of January 2017, is going to be pushed to March if the court agrees with the unopposed motion.

A declaration by Golden Boy’s lead counsel, Bertram Fields, requests that the trial date set for January 31, 2017 is continued until March 13, 2017.  The reason being is that Fields is teaching a class at Stanford Law School during winter quarter.  He advised the court that it would include the need for Fields, who practices law in Los Angeles, to fly to Palo Alto each week to teach.

Notably, Fields states in his declaration that the court had advised that the entire case should take just 4 court days to complete while Golden Boy believes that the case is a complex antitrust case that would take at least 10 court days to complete.  He states in his declaration that even his original estimate of 10 days may have been conservative.

Payout Perspective:

The motion went unopposed according to Golden Boy’s court filing and if this is correct, it pushes the date to at least March 2017.  This probably give Haymon some extra time and something in their pocket to use if they need to request something from Golden Boy or the court.  Fields, the savvy lawyer that he is, includes some argument in his own declaration to contend the need for extra time.

    Golden Boy has become irrelevant. There whole game now is appealing only to Mexicans living in the USA and Mexican Americans with their shows on spanish only stations. DLH is looking like the worst promoter ever with how he is having Canelo avoid any tough opponents his own size. I hope Liam Smith beats him.

    Wil ever since Shaeffer left golden boy has struggled. I agree though de la hoya only pushes for the hispanic demographic and his latest stunt with Chumpnelo has left a really bad taste in fans mouths.
