    What's the deal with Fury and Bob Arum lately?
    A few years back Frank was playing second fiddle to Bob but now it seems to be all Frank with Bob nowhere in sight

    Same answer to the question : What's the deal with Frank and Eddie lately?

    The Saudi connection.

    I was wondering the same thing yesterday. In terms of promotion, 'His Excellency' has just taken over the mantle Bob had, over Fury

    He's still listed as a Top Rank fighter, and they are also broadcasting the fight with ESPN. Then again, who bloody isn't! Dave ja Vu will probably get the repeat!

    Fury can’t get in the USA anymore so Bob’s going to be redundant. Especially when he’s fighting in the afternoon US time

    Fury was/is banned from America so Arum was happy to let Warren do all the work whilst still picking up a %.

    You'd have thought Arum would have wanted to get more involved in the biggest heavyweight fight for decades though.

    Most of the promoters seem to be egomaniacs and love being in the spotlight for big fights

    He’s 92 mate, probably can’t be arsed holding back Fury’s dad pretending he wants to fight.

    I'm guessing age has something to do with it, can't keep jetting around the world forever, especially at bobs age.

    I know one of them died, the black one, though not sure if that was Charles or Eddie!

    Exactly this, plus he’s just back from Australia and probably jet lagged to ****.
