Boxing advisor extraordinaire Al Haymon has recently added six members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic boxing team to his already impressive stable of fighters, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN

Floyd Mayweather Jr., Andre Berto, Adrien Broner, Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander and Austin Trout are just a few of the world-class fighters who are already managed by the influential Haymon. 

By signing with Haymon, Dominic Breazeale, Marcus Browne, Terrell Gausha, Errol Spence Jr., Jamel Herring and Rau'shee Warren should be offered the opportunity to fight on the undercards of some of the biggest cards in boxing. With the backing of one of the most powerful men in the sport, they will most likely be featured on both HBO and Showtime before more seasoned and maybe more deserving fighters.

Earlier this month when Haymon client Devon Alexander had his fight postponed due to an injury suffered by IBF welterweight champion Randall Bailey, J’Leon Love, a middleweight prospect, was put into the co-feature on Showtime Championship Boxing in a matchup that was ESPN Friday Night Fights worthy at best.

Even more telling of Haymon’s influence was his ability to get featherweight Gary Russell Jr. on HBO in an eight-round matchup, which is almost unheard of on the network.

Haymon’s close relationship with Golden Boy Promotions makes it very plausible that the powerful promotional company will sign his newly added clients.

Golden Boy Promotions has promoted the last six fights of Haymon’s biggest client, Floyd Mayweather Jr. With the recent demise of TMT Promotions it seems likely they will promote his next foray in the ring if and when he does choose to fight again.

With Mayweather in his stable, the mysterious Haymon seems to be able to play puppeteer at both pay-cable networks and will no doubt use that influence to further the careers of his newly signed clients.
