AL HAYMON BIG NBC WIN, NFL & FIGHT NOTES

PREMIER BOXING CHAMPIONS & NBC SCORE RATINGS VICTORIES

“Big Al” Haymon Method Of Paying Fighters


San Francisco, CA– Seeing that opening bout on NBC was a drama drought between Adrien Broner and John Molina, in other words not even remotely Hagler-Hearns, the numbers weren’t bad and the ratings got better as the program proceeded. The Keith Thurman-Robert Guerrero fight peaked at 4.2 million NBC homes.

NBC AIRS FIRST PRIMETIME BOXING IN 30 YEARS

Going prime time for the first time since 1985 and Larry Holmes vs. the late Carl “The Truth” Williams, Haymon had to be all smiles in his confines today which is a bigger secret than ex-VP Dick Cheney’s “Undisclosed Location” on Monday afternoon when he learned that the NBC Network Network numbers were #1 in the 18-49 demographic as well. Premier Boxing Champions gets premier numbers first time out!

UFC FIGHTER ROBBED AT GYM, CATCHES CROOKS AT WALMART

Omaha, Nebraska– Former UFC fighter Ryan Jensen (20-8) had his vehicle broken into by a couple who were caught on videotape outside the gym where he was inside teaching MMA. The crooks, their car, license plate, video of them both were viewed as they cleaned out the car. Anyway Jensen tracks his credit card online and find it’s being used at a nearby Walmart. Jensen drove to the store, found the pair and had to chase the male on foot.

NOT A PUNCH THROWN BY MMA TEACHERScreen Shot 2015-03-09 at 11.50.11 PM Jensen, 37, (20-8) last active with a Bellator 1st round stoppage win in April 2014, didn’t lump the guy up even slightly. Then again, I know as a fighter, the last thing you want to do is clip somebody like that, especially if you can’t get away with it clean! Did I really just say that? Truth be told, this was in Walmart. In closing, see that “Nobody’s Home” look in the female’s eyes, that speaks volumes about her condition. Jensen got his stuff back and the duo were jailed.

HERNANDEZ SHARED JOINT WITH VICTIM AT MURDER SCENE

Having followed the murder trial of ex-New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, I can tell you the only hope the 25 year old has is that his attorneys can get one person to hang the jury. Of course, there would be a second trial, but Hernandez would have pushed the eventual conviction date down the road like a can or be put in a position where the Prosecutor might offer him a plea bargain. It appears Hernandez killed Odin Lloyd because he felt, get this, disrespected by the victim who was the boyfriend of Hernandez’s fiances sister.

FINGERPRINTS OF VICTIM & HERNANDEZ ON CAR & WEED!

A marijuana cigarette or mini cigar (a Blunt) was found at the scene of the murder with Hernandez’s DNA as well as that of the victim Odin Lloyd. The odds of the DNA not being Hernandez’s on the joint is 1,000,000,000,000,000 to 1. That is a quadrillion to one. Although the Defense is yet to put forth a case, the game will be like 56-0 and late the 4th quarter by then and any rally they mount can never overcome a Conviction.

AL HAYMON BIG NBC WIN

  • The night had to avoid a stinker fight, a fixed decision, or a serious injury. Went two-and-a-half for three. Even the New York Times ran a piece about it before the card happened, and they rarely write anything that isn’t about a boxing scandal or a fatality. So it looks like lift-off. For now.

    I remember the Holmes-Williams fight back in Spring of ’85 like it was yesterday. Holmes was really starting to show some wear and tear. This was nearly 3 years after he stopped Cooney. Williams actually outjabbed the greatest jabber in heavyweight history. I thought Holmes edged it but barely. Car Williams was a beautiful stand-up boxer, but his chin wasn’t too strong. His venerable New Jersey trainer, Carmen Graziano, said the following about William’s chin: “I wouldn’t say he has a glass jaw . . . It’ s just sensitive.” This is no disrespect whatsoever to “The Truth” as I really admired his skills, style and heart. It’s amazing that Holmes continued to fight as long as he did and actually remained competitive against top heavyweights such Holyfield and McCall.

    Back to last Saturday’s fights. Broner has a tremendous skill set, and hopefully, he’ll continue to tone-down his obnoxious antics. I thought that he was reasonably gracious in victory. Hopefully, he is managing his money and planning for his future somewhat. Molina is limited but game. Ring wars might be catching up with him as he seemed reluctant to “pull the trigger,” or maybe, his reflexes are diminishing somewhat.

    Thurman is a good boxer-puncher (more of a puncher with decent hand speed). It would benefit him to follow his devastating right hand with a fast left hook and to punch more in combination in general. Also, he could really improve his infighting game as Guerrero’s was able to bother him with inside pressure even after the knockdown. I think it depends upon who is head trainer is and if Thurman is willing to improve.

  • You know Hayman and the suits at NBC had to be wanting to kill themselves after the first round, in which John John Molina is credited with throwing ONE punch. They must have seen their careers rebound.
    The Thurman-Guererro fight looked like a repeat of Rahman-Holyfield, and NBC can credit Thurman’s corner with being able to ensure their fighter could continue, as well as not kill the ratings.
