Full Version: Bob Arum's Choices
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing
Allmenjoi8
Paul Williams just lost (despite what the score cards said) a fight to an unknown fighter. Just a few days ago Arum said that Paul would be Manny's next fight... Does that offer still stand with Paul Williams "win" (he lost)...? I think Bob should first see what a fighter can do before matching his main gun. Arum's choices for Manny are awful. Just awful. If you are saying your guy is the best thing since wheat bread and instant grits he then should fight the best and not guys who look the part, but the best. Arum needs to have better choices for Manny, no one will buy the fight with Paul Williams. And before anyone says Floyd refuses to fight him come up with a new argument....
The CEO
How about we turn this into a Fuck You, Bob Arum thread..?


Fuck YOU, Bob Arum...I hope you die in your sleep tonight.

I'm for real...I want him to have a vision of all his money disappearing right before he gives up the ghost.
D-MARV
He's definitely a bitch!

gravytrain
i want Arum to go out in a blaze of glory. like if he works with GBP and calls DLH out then destroys him before dying of a heart attack. kind of like on that episode of Entourage how that guy was laying it on Ari before he died.
The CEO
I want Arum to go out in a blaze. PERIOD.

I wish a deranged hooker to give him a biter blowy and duct tape him into the bed after he passes out....light that old piece of shit on fire.

I wouldn't say Lara is an unknown, but this was not a good night for Paul.

buncha bitter bitches in this thread, for real.

I am not bitter and I wish death on no one but if you are the CEO of a company you should want your company to be the best company and put out good product. If I want okay Italian food I go to Olive Garden if I want great Italian food I go to Maggio's (San Pedro, CA) best damn Italian food around. Bob Arum would be the Sambarno's Italain food that can be found in any mall food court. It does the job but it ain't satisfying. If your company is Top Rank then show it. Cotto vs. Mr. Cheater and JMM vs,\. Manny three years late? Really? Why not Hollyfield vs. Butter Bean?

Was referring to people who wish death on other people that they don't even know. Bitter hatred infesting their souls and oozing out of their pores.
Hops
WeLl employees shouldnt be accusing other employees of taking PEDs simply because they are performing well. Even when bosses dont implement strict drug testing.

What exactly does that have to do with this thread? Mayweather isn't the only game in town.... and again what does that have to do with this topic?
Hops
I'm telling you what workers should not do. After all, you told us what companies should.

Is that so?

bitter bitches because we've had enough of his garbage?.....unbelievable...I never thought I'd see the day where someone defended Bob Arum...lol

Do you REALLY wanna be that guy?....I don't think so...


and one more thing, Saint...no one said anything about you or yours, so watch the namecalling...or YOUR name will end up being FightHypeRulesMe...

Hows about this one? I hope he falls asleep in the garage with the car running and. I hope he mixes his high blood pressure meds with a gallon of booze and some 36 hour cialis. How about he bites it on some '1,000 ways to die' shit. That would make my day. I really hate that guy.
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.
On another note, what's up with these young fighters acting like they don't know how to call fighters out. I think the sport of boxing is in sad shape when Bob Papa has to prompt someone to get a legit response out of him. We didn't ask you promoter, we asked you. Your promoter's choice may be someone like Barrera. I wanted Rios to personally call Pacquiao out but I guess he's another guy who lets Bob Arum give him his opinion. Bob Arum will take his success and step on it. He'll try to put Rios in a PPV with an old guy like Barrera and drive Rios' worth down. Give him 4 fights, all with top 10 contenders or current champions. Do NOT put him in with Barrera! Rios making noise now. Don't fuck that up.

Arum's been at the top of his field for 40 years. He's gotta be doing something right.

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.
Skillfull
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.

"his own drug squad" lol. Outta your mind.

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.

IMO Bob is hurting Boxing .weve heard about him bribing judges ,FBI raiding Top Rank offices he only makes Top Rank fights fighters with in the company .and now with this Floyd negotiation ever week its something new .
I feel he doesnt want this fight.well not yet the man knows boxing and he knows once Floyd beats Manny then its a wrap for Top Rank i mean ya he will still have fighters but Pac is his cash cow. I say Pac vs Floyd happens after Chavez Jr beats Cotto and msybe a plasterito .therefor Bob has s new cash cow to fall back on .and Yes i said chavez beats them both even though i think chavez sucks .but IMO top rank fights are fixed .

Bitter bitches? Really dude? You must be some kind of boxing fan if you condone the cherry picking. Rios, a world champion and a guy making a ton of noise, need not fight a Marco Antonio Barerra. The best they can offer us is that fight? You know they'll put that on ppv. Bob Arum's killing the sport. The competitive nature has been nullified by what Arum thinks a fighter is ready for. If he's a prizefighter, he should be ready to fight. Golden Boy and DiBella are doing just fine by the sport. I think Bob Arum should have his own little lane for Top Rank fighters. The way they keep everything in house, one would think that they wouldn't be WORLD champions. The world is not limited to the Top Rank stable. Call me bitter but Arum can shoot himself in the fucking head for all I care.

Whilst the Bobfather is a parasite & a cancer on the sport who will be the shining light to lead us out of the darkness? GBP are everything they said they would not be & DLH & co may as well be the Darth Vader to Bobs Palpatine.

nobody is ever going to turn around boxing. the only difference between GBP and Arum is Arum can actually play the game. if anything i just don't like the fact the fight with Mayweather could be another 2 years.

the biggest thing for me has been the fanboys involved in the Mayweather vs Pac soap opera. i don't care if they let the fight marinade if they're talking trash and putting on good fights in the mean time, that hasn't exactly been the case though.

This is the logic that makes me laugh. It's like one time I was discussing hip hop with someone who isn't really that big a fan of hip hop and is one of those dudes who since he doesn't know shit about it or like it, he just assumes nobody that does it has any talent whatsoever.

So we were discussing Kanye and this is right after the whole Taylor Swift fiasco. And I pointed out several times how I thought Kanye was an asshole for what he did and that he had some definite ego issues. I then said that despite all that, the dude definitely has talent and has made some good music.

This guy then starts in on that "oh okay so you don't have a problem with what he did? You don't see anything wrong with him acting like an asshole?"

And that's the logic that so many people (particularly online) tend to have. That if you say ONE good thing about someone, or you take issue with ONE criticism of someone, that you're somehow condoning or excusing everything in that person's life.

So me saying that it makes no sense and reeks of bitterness for people to hate on someone with such intensity that they are openly wishing for the death of that person (and not doing so in a joking matter), that somehow means I'm excusing what Arum does or has done in the past.

I've said REPEATEDLY on here that I do not like Manny, I do not like Arum, I do not like Roach, I do not like Floyd or his family.

Yet because I think it's utterly pathetic for people who are supposedly secure in their own lives, to wish death and harm on someone who they've never even had dealings with, then somehow I am making excuses for him.

That's real funny to me.

Walstan you need to grow up and do some research fella.
Lets all believe bob arum is a great honest lawyer with no criminal past, and james tony and othe top rank fighters have not been caught taking steroids.

That's the way to observe right there...closely.

The way I see it is if you supposedly LOVE Boxing, you should DESPISE Arum.

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.
