You said that Arum doesn't like black fighters. You said that Arum doesn't like a certain group of fighters based on the color of their skin. I interpret that as racism. If a co-worker told me that he didn't like so or so because he was black, I would consider him a racist. If you don't agree with me then that is fine but I will continue to label those that don't like people based on the color of their skin as racists.

Arum is a tool. I don't like him. He is bad for boxing and he puts up trash PPV events. I think GBP is FARRRRRR ahead of TR at this point. There is no part of me that thinks Arum is racist. I give him the same benefit of the doubt that I give anyone. I assume someone isn't racist until they give me a reason to believe otherwise.

I believe he's shown racial tendencies,like the interview posted. Those were very insensitive and ignorant remarks he made. He does show a tendency to go hard for certain fighters, like Nonito, Like Manny, and like Cotto and Mikey Garcia. But why doesn't he go hard for Tim or for Rigo. He loved Crawford but made a stern warning to him about his last fight and the consequences of fighting like that again. It's funny how Mayweather Jr wasn't boring when he was under his them. But when he leaves it's a problem. I always go back to the meeting where Floyd wanted to cater to his OWN people and Bob told him these disparaging things like how blacks don't do this and they don't do that. Now I know the Hispanic population makes up a big market in boxing but the best fighters are black and they are being under -marketed, under-catered to

Now does this make him racist, maybe or maybe not. But he is a sketchy character. I don't like homosexuality but that doesn't mes. I hate those who are gay or that I discriminate against them. It's all in the context in which it's used.

“Here is what bothers me, the lack of respect from Top Rank and Bob Arum, who makes jokes in bad taste – like the one where he says that in order to become a superstar Fidel Castro has to come down and promote me or how the people at HBO vomit when they hear my name,” Rigondeaux told George Ebro. “HBO recently paid homage to all of the champions and Top Rank/HBO did not invite me. They say they’re going to give me exposure on this card and that card and then forget those promises. Everything is a lack of respect. Either they promote me or give me back the contract, but I will not accept any more disrespect. I’ve won my titles with great effort and I will not let anything or anyone come and disrespect me. Arum does not treat everyone equally, I have no doubt about that.


Fidel Castro? Really, he's an ass we all know it. But Rigo said something g here that really stuck, Arum makes jokes and comments in bad taste, and in turn they make him look a certain way. And I agree GB is putting on better cards but TR has had some nice ones, though I still refuse to purchase their PPV's
