Probably not but Arum doesn't need facts especially when he has the media by the nuts and on his payroll~
Yep, for the most part. Anytime Manny's numbers were in question, Arum usually swept it under the rug by either announcing Manny's next opponent, or making up a number. I will admit, TR's last few fights have been fan-friendly, so I wont really give him a hard time if the numbers the he gives us are actually somewhat high.

arum didn't build the careers of marquez or bradley. his numbers mean nothing in this match up imo. it's just a great fight for boxing.
C'mon Professor, we ALL know that that's what it's gonna come down to when these two rival promoters are airing a PPV on the same night. Hell, they compare numbers when they compete on different networks on the same night. It even got so petty last September, that they were trying to see who sold the most tickets at the T & M Center and the MGM.
They said that the T & M Center was sold out, but that was a lie because I was there, and there were several seats left. Then they went on to say that the MGM was sold, that too was a lie.
Neither side will go out quietly after Sept. 14th...inevitable.
