It's interesting that Bob Arum gets blamed for ruining boxing by following economic self interest, which he in part has to give to his fighters. Nobody questions Golden Boy's comical decision to put on a show against Martinez-Chavez Jr. full of GBP fighters but when GBP announces that Bob Arum is uninterested in a fight, without evidence ****riders jump to the conclusion that Arum is ruining boxing.
Here's what's ruining boxing: Stupid people. Stop being stupid and boxing will improve, with or without Bob Arum.
Arum has shown no interest in a rigo/donaire fight. And anything can happen. Pac and Rigo could both lose. No one is saying he should or should have accepted the offer but to completely blow it off? What about after Rigo/Donaire and Rios/Pac happen? You think Arum will be considering that trade? NO!!!!! He won't.
Wake the **** up people he completely dismissed the offer and basically told Gbp to **** off. All the people defending Arum all have different logic and reasoning..... ****in hilarious.
