I always look at things he says with a certain amount of doubt. I pay extra close attention to his body language, his eyes, and his words themselves. Last night, Bob Arum said that he'd like to put Rios in with Pacquiao in 2013. I have no objection to this decision. I do find it strange how Arum can fix his lips to say that Rios can match Manny's 'speed and ferocity'. Ferocity is fairly accurate but speed, absolutely not! He spits in the faces of the many people who've just witnessed Rios' fight, by making a silly statement like that. I just don't get it. In my eyes, Bob Arum is toxic for the sport.
That's the way to observe right there...closely
The way I see it is if you supposedly LOVE Boxing, you should DESPISE Arum.

Arum's been at the top of his field for 40 years. He's gotta be doing something right.
and then there's "fans" like this...

He's a lying piece of dogshit that is so fucking old the mold done died and too fucking tired to even stink. Motherfucker's going to blow away with the next strong breeze.
Hopefully that will be real soon, before boxing dies with him.
I knew Smarty felt the same way...

Bottom line is bob arum is a billionaire crook that bribes judges and companies to do his will. He has been doing it for years and pays the main press to keep his name sweet. Do your research and find out about this crook. Now he wants to get his own drug squad in to test both fighters..what a joke. He cant grease the olympics palms.

lol. Simply my opinion man. No more, no less. My opinion means nothing to anyone except me and anyone who agrees.
Never defended Arum at all on here. There's a difference between "defending" someone and simply pointing out the illogical nature of wishing death on someone.
And Saint? Ha! I'm far from a saint.
Well...seems to me your opinion is alone...no one else was affected like you.
It would have been alright if you had simply said, "I feel it's illogical to wish death on someone." wherein I would have probably replied, "but we're talking about Bob Arum, and this is a Boxing board."...lol....I know you're familiar with word choice so there must be some kind of problem here...if you don't give a shit about Arum, why would you wanna resort to namecallin'.....
Hmmmm.....I got my eye on you, Big FightHype Fan.
