Nope, Bradley was bragging about signing with TR and saying that he was going to get the biggest payday of his career in his first TR fight (against Casamayor), but the fool actually opted not to take his signing bonus upon signing.
Instead, he got it in his first fight purse, which was a little over $1M...$600k of it being his fight purse. Now that I think about it, he made $800k against Devon earlier that same year, so NO, his TR debut WASN'T his biggest payday. Over half of it was his fight purse, while the rest of it was his bonus...one of which Manny paid (since he was the "co-promoter of the card).
Arum is a straight up Thug! talk about Thug Life, Arum is it!

So did Oscar. Isn't it funny that 2 of the biggest money makers of all time in the sport made their money WITHOUT Arum? Pacquiao needs to listen to his lawyer and the other few around him trying to tell him the truth. It's almost too late
His fans would argue that he is such a loyal and kind heart guy that he won't leave Arum. However he did not have an issue with firing Ariza. Either Bob has something on Manny, Manny owes Bob money that he advanced to him or he doesn't care. You are right Chi, the best 30 for 30, ever. Didn't Roach even say he had to give Manny money? Shit

Cotto ran back but he didn't sign his life over to Bob. The Bernie Maddoff of boxing.
