    Default Why Bob Arum IS WAY *CRAPPIER* Than Every Promoter That Ever Lived!!!!!





    Look at who Floyd fought & how much he got under Arum.

    Then Look at who Pac fought under Arum-why did Pac leave Arum?
    If Arum is such a great promoter, why leave manny?
    Where are the great fight cards Arum put together?


    pacman- Pre Arum had Murad and that was how we heard of him- he got Ledwaba title shot for pac. he didnt haggle- he got Morales, Barerra & JMM.
    Post Murad- with Arum--- he fed his own stable to pac. So no matter who won- Arum got paid.


    Clottey lost title shot to Cotto- so he was awarded his next fight- Pacman. So Pac fought him after he lost.
    Thanks Arum

    After Shane beat down of Rito- Rito wins some international title and for that he & Pac earned the right to fight for a legit 154 title? That's B.S. how were these two worthy without a single legit win at the weight? The B.S. of Arum!

    I'd waiger that Not a single one of us can legitimize Pac fighting Bradley 3x - other than - he was on Team Arum who got paid 3x2 for that.

    Under Arum, Brandon Rios loses to Mike Alvarado- for losing- he gets to fight Pacman...who wannted to see Brandon fight Pac as a loser?

    Under Arum, Chris Algerie wasnt my choice for Pac to fight- Yeah he won, so, too did Khan beat Algerie & Spence stopped him.
    Was that the fight any of you expected to see in 2014?


    Under Arum, Jesse Vargas loses to Bradley- so for losing- he gets Pacman!!


    Under Arum, Jeff Horn feasted on has-beens like Randall Bailey to Ali Funeka who went on a 5 or 6 losing streak? So for that he gets Pacman.
    Who in 2017 wanted to see that?

    Lucas Matthysse was a big puncher- but to see this fight 14 years into his career? he lost every bid for a major trinket.. Winning instead those international titles as Postol went POSTAL on Matthysse and stopped him. Finally wins a major title...against who Tewa Kiram? Whose he? After that fight he got Pac.
    (Iv'e stated Pac only won WBOs...I stand corrected this was the WBA)

    Under Arum- Adrian Broner loses to Garcia, gets a draw with Vargas. So for his reward- he gets to fight Pac.

    Those are way too many B.S. fights -Pac with Murad would have never took those fights.
    Under Arum- his taxes are all fucked up, He doesnt know how much is owed in his homeland versus America.


    Under Arum- Bud Crawford just withered. So he called Arum out. Next day...not at the conference- NEXT day he stated Bud never asked for Errol.

    Who would believe in that? So it was Bud's joB to tell him what the people want?


    Under Arum-PBF fought undercards and nobodies.


    And without Arum...





    THANK YOU BUD FOR CALLING OUT ARUM!!!!

    I like how they can talk, cheap shot each other a bit - but never turns into that Charlo type convo...acting all tough.


    Bud & Errol act tough in the ring. Outside, they seem like 2 cool ass dudes.

    Promoters are horrible people and the worse they are the more richer and powerful they become.

    I never believe a word they say, Arum said as much about himself, everything he said yesterday was a lie.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    That was rough Bud straight knee capped him but that needed to happen and be said. Arum looked like he was about to burst. Still though it's all about the action going forward for Crawford now. Stay away from Hearn or he'll end up crushing cans advertised on the back of random Milk cartons. Promoters are akin to your local politicians and with enough white envelopes under the table they find their sway to really screw things up and screw people over. Recent times maybe that one 'promoter' Rick Elvis Parker beats Arum out as crappier but Bob has always been shrewd.

    Promoters in general are crap because all they do is keep great fighters from fighting each other until the expiration date has come and gone.... if ever.

    There are two differing reports on how many buys this ESPN+ exclusive card did. Yahoo’s Kevin Iole tweeted that the estimated buyrate was 190,000, but RingTV’s Joseph Santoliquito says it’s even lower than that at 135,000, while BoxingScene’s Keith Idec also said it didn’t reach the break-even point of 150,000.


    Most if not all falls on the promoter. Didn't see too much promo at all. Just an occasional billboard. Money-May does talk shows, radio, hell not stating Bud needed to contact Vince McMahon WWWE- rather when was the last time Arum sold a major PPV?

    Pacman is sellable on his own.


    Spence-Porter does 350k
    Crawford-Porter does 190k

    Not sure how that happened. Other than Spence does quite a few rounds from social platforms, hangs around rappers.
    Arum should be ashamed to lump all the blame on a kick ass fighter.

    The video spans a few topics & not just Mayweather wanting Crawford.

    Side note- saw Ellerbe talking trash about Hearn- this video puts it in perspective for me. Didnt know Haney's low crowd attendance may have been due to a concert same night- comedian Martin Lawrence raising the question; why schedule a fight the same night as a cultural comedic icon? Unless Hearn doesnt know or care for the fanbase possibly attending.


    Back on subject- Floyd has a chance to prove Bud can sale. My question is - will he continue to do like he does with Tank? 1/2 way through promoting, turns the convo toward himself?

    Can Floyd nab Bud? Should he & if so, would it benefit him and the fans?

    My take is- stay a free agent. Dont let himself get caught up with a promoter that has other promoters saying -naw thats ok.
