Not sure but if he was signed to Matchroom..would be making alot more. Would get more hype. More publicity.So what is Ruiz getting paid?
And would not have to pay a consultation fee to Uncle Al Haymon for doing virtually nothing. The real question is what exactly Al Haymon do? The guy does not promote or hype fighters, does not do media interviews.
Had the greatest opportunity in decades to make Boxing a mainstream sport again by having it on terrestrial tv....had huge financial backing.
Instead put on the most dull shows ever...I think your average tèenage WWE wrestling fan. Could have organised more entertaining events with spectacular ring entrances and the rest to capture the interest of the general public.
The really useless promoter has to be Uncle Al Haymon.
Atleast Hearn does his job as a promoter...by selling and hyping events and fighters.
Ruiz has received more promotion and hype in two days from Eddie Hearns than his entire tenure with Uncle Al Haymon.
I take everything Eddie Hearn says about anything with a pinch if salt...but giving credit where it is due he is a great promoter.
