According to the front page news, Pacquiao renewed his contract with Top Rank. Which made me wonder if Bob really did screw Pacquiao with the Bradley fight because his contract was almost up after that fight. I'm sure he was worried that Pacquiao would pull a Cotto after his contract expires. A loss to his new undefeated pet (Bradley) from Pacquiao was not something he was going to do since he was uncertain if Pacquiao's loyalty to stay or not. It's like you wanna leave? Take a loss before I let you go.

It's just interesting how this man governs boxing as a whole. Now he has Pac by the balls till 2014, promising him a Mayweather fight and even using 50 cent to truly bait Pacquiao to believing false promises.


This man has the biggest boxing promotional company. Gives out the best fights really... (Martinez/Chavez vs Canelo/Lopez lol). As a boxing fan you probably wish you'd catch him walking alone on a street and just beat the shit out of him. But from a business perspective this man knows his shit inside and out.


Interesting to see when this guy croaks and how will boxing as a whole change...


Just a thought.

This is ironic because I'm in the proces of writing an article on the promotional landscape in general. Just wanted to clarify that I didn't bite your post and have had the idea for a while. Nice one nonetheless.

Someone else will just replace him when he dies..

But its funny you mention pacs new extension because it sounds like Bradley is gonna be put on the shelf. I hope not though, I think the winner of the rios fight against Bradley might be good.

bob arum controls pac and toprank. he DOES NOT control boxing. life will go on without him.
