Don may have screwed alota folks but he made big fights happen in every era of boxing he's been apart of!


True, he would still be on top if he wasn't such a greedy little bastard. Arum is and always will be a main event guy, Don King was the first promoter EVER to stack a card from top to bottom. His cards were always more enjoyable then Arum's and so was many of his main events too

Pacquiao doesn't fight on HBO if that is the case. If I remember HBO said that would stop doing business with GB fighters. Didn't Pacman fight in a showtime PPV? If Rob is so ready to end this shit, have Rigondeaux fight Leo Santa Cruz and give GRJ Mike Garcia. it is all talk. Now fans are fighting over damn networks

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.

Man you got pacman fanatics preaching this stuff like Gospel to people who don't know no better and then you got the people who just hate the dude using it to enforce the propaganda.




But Manny opponents are never questioned



They never look or acknowledge the fact that golden boy and top rank never do business.

You can break it down for em unbiasedly and you'll realize who's been misinformationed and who wants to be ignorant about just for dislikes sake

the only positive thing i will say about those in the pac fan club is that they are absolutely relentless and will never quit. it's like talking to a brick wall sometimes...nothing gets through not even the most basic facts. after each debate ends and the dust clears, one side just gives up and the pactards are still there spewing their shit to anyone who listens. it's ruining it for me cuz i used to respect pacquiao and enjoy watching his fights, but now its like an evil part of me just wants him to get KO'd cold into retirement to shut up all his followers.

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