Try to come up with a new excuse for Arum's behavior; maybe the third time will be the charm.
OK. Again. Who would have promoted Pac/May under May's proposal. No one wants to answer this one because we know the truth. It would have been a GBP. They have a license and promote his fights. But go ahead. Please answer so we are on the same page.
Floyd flat out denied the negotiations happened for the second round after Arum had been in negotiations. This is why Arum said he didn't know who to negotiate with. Floyd said there were NO negotiations. HBO basically had to step in and back Arum that there were negotiations. So, you lose here. Arum was right to say he didn't know who to negotiate with because of this. Floyd denied the people negotiating for him had the right to do so. Not nearly the same as calling Pac direct and telling him Top Rank could not be involved in the promotion if they fought.
