“You [have to] understand that whatever is said, it has nothing to do with ‘they won’t do business with us’ or ‘we don’t’ do business with them’. That’s all bullsh*t. I mean I lived with [Don] King for so many years where we were competitors and we did business together. The problem is Showtime. Showtime won’t deal with any promoter except Golden Boy! So why should I take a fighter and give them to Showtime when they won’t deal with Top Rank or any other promoter other than Golden Boy,”

they offered you Doniare vs mares and showed you the money dont use that one.

“Showtime is the one that’s at fault and CBS has allowed them to get away with this kind of thing. It’s never happened before in the sport of boxing where one entity only deals with one promoter. When is the last time another promoter – forget Top Rank – any other promoter has put a fight on for Showtime?”

is there truth to this?



“ they take a fight a Canelo-Angulo which belongs on Showtime and they put it on pay per view. What is that?”

ill give that one to him that is not a ppv fight.



“They have a guy [Stephen Espinoza] in charge of Showtime Sports, he signed Mayweather; if you’re a subscriber for Showtime, what the hell difference does it mean to you? Mayweather isn’t on Showtime, he’s on pay-per-view. If you have a subscription, you can’t see a Mayweather fight on Showtime. It’s ridiculous”.

100% truth ...i hate to say it but bob has a very valid point!

Rob Arum, said on FNF on ESPN, the reason why Floyd won't fight Pac is because he is afraid to fight a Southpaw. He even compared Floyd to fucking Hitler. I was speechless. Why do they let him get away with this shit? Question, why do people say "when will Floyd fight Pacquiao?" Why won't people ever phrase the question "when will Pac fight Floyd? " Media bias is a bitch.

think alot of the bias has to do with how floyd played the villain role throughout most of his career. he's calmed down quite a bit, but people still see him as a money flaunting arrogant dude. meanwhile, manny plays the act of being a devout Catholic and respectful congressman who serves the people.

arum understands how easy it is to prey on the casual fan who really doesnt take the time to study the sport or the fighters. it's a shame bc it's causing alot of pure hatred among floyd/manny fans who cant see both sides of the issue. instead, they fall into the trap of following whatever bullshit propaganda is laid out in front of them. i think, in a way, arum's helping floyd gain attention and controversy, both of which add to his cash flow. dont know why he has to stoop so low with the hitler comment...guess he's that butt hurt over all his best fighters ditching him for bigger and better.

Sad part is he was never a villain till the de la hoya fight...that's when all this shit started.
