It didn’t take long for the other shoe to drop. Only hours after Richard Schaefer announced Monday he was resigning as CEO of Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, Floyd Mayweather Jr. declared through the CEO of Mayweather Promotions – Leonard Ellerbe – that he will no longer use Golden Boy to help promote his fights, according to a report on
