I want to say that GBP takes the cake here, but who knows? Has Arum's numbers ever been real?


arum didn't build the careers of marquez or bradley. his numbers mean nothing in this match up imo. it's just a great fight for boxing.

Bradley marquez is on ppv? That's more surprising



I'm buying. Wanted to see this one for about 2 years now.

True, if Mayweather goes on that date even Duboef said they'll move Bradley-Marquez. Don't really matter who he fights, but if he goes in again on Sept 14th, it won't be a need to worry about dueling cards

This could be a fairly clever move on Arums part, see they say there fighting on Floyds date which Floyd clearly won't be happy about but he knows if he fights Arum will have to move, but it could really be Arum forcing his hand into actually fighting on September. Either way Arum gets what he wants, either he gets his card and gets to say "I told you so" or Floyd fights twice a year and we see if there's any wear and tear

I stopped buying TR events a long time ago. I'll watch tho as I said it floyds next opponent is any of the guys he's been listing, cause if Floyd is in top form the only person i would want to see him against is probably Bradley that is if Bradley shows he isn't damaged goods (which I don't think he will be, the guy has balls of steel).

I agree with you, bet money that if Floyd moves arum stacks that card and goes head to head with canelo. I mean why not? He won the last time canelo fought on the same date

Probably not but Arum doesn't need facts especially when he has the media by the nuts and on his payroll~

Yep, for the most part. Anytime Manny's numbers were in question, Arum usually swept it under the rug by either announcing Manny's next opponent, or making up a number. I will admit, TR's last few fights have been fan-friendly, so I wont really give him a hard time if the numbers the he gives us are actually somewhat high.

C'mon Professor, we ALL know that that's what it's gonna come down to when these two rival promoters are airing a PPV on the same night. Hell, they compare numbers when they compete on different networks on the same night. It even got so petty last September, that they were trying to see who sold the most tickets at the T & M Center and the MGM.

They said that the T & M Center was sold out, but that was a lie because I was there, and there were several seats left. Then they went on to say that the MGM was sold, that too was a lie. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Neither side will go out quietly after Sept. 14th...inevitable.

If Floyd fights Canelo, Bob is moving that date. I promise you. By the way he moved Pac's fight to November and to Macau. He is looking for that money and whoever Pac fights is a guaranteed victory. Mike or Brandon will have to kill Manny in the ring if they have a shot to win.

I know I'm probably in the minority but I think that Bradleu/Marquez fight is going to be awful to watch. The fact that it's going to be on PPV just makes it even worse lol. I'd sooner rewatch Mosley vs More than buy that fight on PPV.

I've a feeling it'll be worse than Dawson/Hopkins I if that didn't end abruptly as that fight had no real business being a PPV
