AL HAYMON IN CROSSHAIRS OF “ESTABLISHMENT”
San Francisco, CA– It was announced today, as parts of Baltimore still smolder and the new US Attorney General Loretta Lynch doesn’t have enough on her plate, the Dept. of Justice has been asked by Assn. of Boxing Commissions President Tim Lueckenhoff to look into boxing’s premier powerbroker Al Haymon.
A.B.C. ADMITS AGENCY IMPOTENTCY?
Quoting from the letter, Lueckenhoff states, “The ABC has no resources or authority to investigate further or to take action with respect to this. However, we can and do request that there is “reasonable cause to believe” that PBC/Heymon “engaged in a violation of this chapter” [15 U.S.C. 6301 et. seq.] and that 15 U.S.C. 6309 gives express authority to the United States Attorney General’s Office to investigate and to take action. We ask that you do so.”
ABC SAYS HAYMON “FLAUNTING ALI ACT”
Leuckenhoff continues, “Haymon and related companies make no attempt to hide that they operate in the dual capacities of promoter and manager. It was the Vice President of Operations “Haymon Boxing” which sat on the dais and participated in the announcement of the PBC series on NBC. No other promoter was present. Frankly Haymon seems to be ﬂouting this breach of the Firewall provision of the Muhammad Ali Act.”
