We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Richard Schaefer is associated, including Floyd Mayweather, Galen Center, and fight. Most recently, Richard Schaefer has been quoted saying: “You have the Dirrells at super-middleweight, but that's it. If you go down the top 30 cruiserweights in the world you probably won't have a single American. Are we going to invite somebody in just because he's American? No, we want the best and that's it.” in the article Why there is only one American in the World Boxing Super Series.

Since I left Golden Boy [Promotions] in the summer of 2014 the sport has become much more global. The US, which was always the dominant market, is not as dominant now and I think the UK is more dominant. We see that on the pay-per-view numbers, the [...]
Nonito is one of the modern day legends of our sport. One of these rare fighters that always delivers and always knows how to entertain! I am convinced that he will again become one of the pound for pound best fighters in the world. No doubt about i[...]
I cannot go anywhere without somebody asking me about this fight. The world is talking and that is promoting. It evokes emotion. In this case, a lot of people hate it, a lot of people love it and a lot of people are going to buy it.
Some call it a circus act, it's not a circus act. You never know in a boxing ring. Is Mayweather favourite? Of course he is. Can you totally count McGregor out? No. Do we really know what McGregor will bring? I don't know. Is Mayweather a big punche[...]
Kalle and I will have our work cut out promoting these fights. We have to move quickly to secure dates and venues and get things going.
The thing is, this is a new concept. As much credibility as Kalle [Sauerland], me, the other organisers bring to the table, ultimately TV networks want to know what fight they are buying. They want to know who is going to fight who. In boxing, netwo[...]
We'll work with Kalle to put together good undercards with local fighters and there are also reserve fighters for the tournament, and they'll fight on these undercards. We'll have to see, but we'll be putting together attractive and entertaining und[...]
When you look at Anthony Joshua in the London Olympics he was much less experienced than Joe Joyce is now so I actually believe, and I mentioned this to Joe last night, if you look at the Top 15 ranked heavyweights [in the world] there's really only[...]
To do a long term deal with us shows there's a statement of intent from them. We [already] have fighters who have different storylines, but the important thing for us is quality. Will we sign another seven or eight fighters in the next 12 months? Pr[...]
We had a round of meetings. We came to London and in less than a week we spoke to many stations who had expressed an interest to work with us. Some were more advanced discussions than with others, but there was a lot of interest. The ones that showe[...]
Bellator are one of the top two MMA promoters and for them to allow him to enter into a promotional agreement with boxing is ground-breaking.
We're delighted to be working alongside UKTV, taking the sport back to the masses where it belongs. I enjoy building prospects and champions into superstars that transcend the sport of boxing and become global household names, just like I have done [...]
Fans here in California and watching on FS1 and FOX Deportes will get to see the former world champion against the always tough Saul Corral as he works his way back towards the top of the welterweight division. This great show will also feature a st[...]
Every time Victor Ortiz gets into the ring, you know that it is going to be an electric night and I expect another action-packed show on July 30.
The Saint is not only the WBA Super-Middleweight Champion but also definitely the hottest name in the division right now. There is never a dull moment in his fights and that is what makes him a stand-out participant of the inaugural season of the Wo[...]
We promised you the biggest names and champions in the divisions and here we are delivering. More names will follow shortly. We simply can't wait to get the action started!
The cruiserweights and super-middleweight have time and time again thrown up thrilling contests – but nobody has ever pitted the top fighters against each other in a fan-friendly, easy-to-understand way within a short period of time. Our revolutiona[...]
"It is a great pleasure for me to welcome our first Olympic gold medallist, Tony Yoka, to Ringstar,". "Tony's skills in the ring speak for themselves and combined with his tremendous charisma, he will transcend boxing and become a global superstar a[...]
I've seen that in the UK suddenly you have a lot of pay-per-views and you have to be careful that you don't oversupply the market with pay-per-views because people could turn very quickly on pay-per-view. So it's a good thing that more providers are[...]
"I think it's great the Sky pay-per-view monopoly was sort of broken. Other platforms can offer pay-per-view in the UK as well. That's the good news. The bad news is you have to be really careful what events you put on pay-per-view and what is reall[...]
"I've been very selective,". "I really want to focus on quality and not quantity and not just fighters who can fight in the ring, but really fighters who can transcend the sport and have an impact outside of the ring as well.".
I've wanted to set up in the UK for a long time, but it was important to partner with a team who knows the market. I couldn't ask for a better partner than David – we're both incredibly passionate about the sport, we both want to put fighters first,[...]
"I'm delighted to be partnering with David to form Hayemaker Ringstar. The UK is a great market for boxing, with exciting fighters and passionate fans, and we're determined to work with the most talented boxers to give people the fights they want to[...]
"Whenever I come here I can feel the passion that you fans bring to the sport & I really appreciate that. I don't think that there are any better fans than you guys."
"It's a thrill to promote another fantastic night of boxing featuring two evenly matched world championship showdowns,"
"I can't give one interview where I'm not asked if Floyd Mayweather is coming back, "
"Floyd is my friend, and the first time we did the Mayweather-De La Hoya fight, Floyd and I had our run in but from then on we established a tremendous relationship,"
But unfortunately boxing greats are only really, really appreciated many years after they're gone. I think if Floyd a 50th fight, it should be an appreciation. Everyone come together to cherish Floyd Mayweather one more time, basically a thank you f[...]
"When we had him, I don't think many media people and fans appreciated what we had. Forget fighters, he was one of the greatest athletes of our time performing at such a high level. He made Juan Manuel Marquez look ordinary, he probably didn't win a[...]
"To do my first event from Galen Center is very meaningful because while I've been out, I've sent my two boys to USC, and these are the kinds of events I like to put together – two 50/50 fights in which the best fight the best,"
"It's the love for the sport,". "I believe in boxing, I believe in Golden Boy, and I still believe in my vision. My vision was derailed along the way for several years without me knowing, but I have the bull by the horns and I'm not letting go.".
