    PAC’s last fight in the UK for a big money grab, how awesome would that be.

    O2 Arena would be insane.

    Arum is the promoter. If boxers need to do everything by themselves then why does Bob exist like a leech?

    He exists to give Pacquiao one big fight in the UK..

    we know Crawford would never go to the UK for a big paycheck.

    Are you new? Pacquiao ducked needless testing because he was afraid of needles? Also was on those secret shakes

    So he wasn't caught then?

    Not taking a needle means no actual proof

    And if the shake is so secret then how do you know about them?

    Promoters make fights and fight posters, fighter make following. Heard of Saul Alvarez? 50 million Latinos did before Clen met Dr. Fishnets. Ryan Garcia's self-handled social activity mean anything to you?

    What "posters" ?
    What do 2 boxers among dozens tell us? Nothing at all.

    The promoter's job is to promote.

    Crawford pays a hall of fame promotor hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to promote his fights. He shouldn't have to do **** himself. The fact that Arum has a pound-for-pound talent, who's a former undisputed champion and is absolutely ruthless when it comes to finishing people off, yet can't market him outside of Omaha is embarrassing. And yet Bob winges about how he's lost money on Crawford, like it isn't his job.

    In terms of mismatches promoted by old father time, this would be the current era's Holmes vs Ali.

    Please. No.

    Arum loves money. If there was an opportunity to turn Crawford into a superstar, he would have done so. It's unfortunate that most fans are drawn to loud trash talkers and big personality types. Crawford has zero personality, unfortunately.

    Also, even well established A-list movie stars do a ton of interviews and media tours to promote their films. Crawford needs to promote himself as well.

    It's crappy, but people love personality more than skills. It's really bad when a soft spoken guy of few words like Spence is more charismatic than you.

    I'd rather pac pass that torch to Tank, Tank is the money fight. He has more followers on twitter and ig than taylor, crawford or Tank would give out a good show by knocking out old pacquao. As pac loves to say, lets give the fans a good fight!

    If this does come around I'd go see it. Not sure how healthy it is for pac! But chance to see a legend fighting.

    I think he does have cos Crawford was ultima in his previous weight class.
    When he had moved up, best boxer he had was Mean Machine lad. No one else better till today.
    While they had talked about Spence Jr and Pacman etc nice surnames usable for big sales.

    Tank should first stop eating chicken tendies, and win an actual belt @ 140 lbs.
    GrandPac would still beat the **** out of Twink.
