    Tim Bradley. "This is one of the reasons why I got out. Terrence Crawford, they wont even speak his name. Haymon takes care of his fighters and that's all fine, but he has created his own world. He has all the fighters."

    "This is the world of boxing. You cant create your world and leave everybody else out, you cant do that man. The fans want to see the fights, I'm a fan".

    This guy pretty much nails it. I'm not even a fan of Crawford. But hes been TOTALLY FREEZED out by Haymon. This is a travesty.

    Crawford should have never resigned with arum when he knew he was going to ww. He already knew that haymon had all the fighters at 147 and he really has no options at 147 with arum. Dumb move by Crawford.

    Tim Bradley is an announcer for Top Rank Boxing. He works for Bob Arum. Bob Arum's big contribution to boxing so far in 2019 was cancelling the Wilder-Fury rematch - after Warren asked the WBC for a couple more days to iron out the final details of the rematch.

    I don't want to hear any Bob Arum employee talking about how Al Haymon is trying to "control" things.

    Bradley is Arum's lap dog. As a black man, I'd tell you what I really think he is, but l might get banned again.

    Arum is the single biggest liar in boxing history. I say that because at least King never really tried to hide being a conman.

    But he's great at spinning the narrative, so of course it's easy to believe that this is Haymon's fault.

    Dumb move? He just got paid more than any PBC Welterweight except Pac (10 million) by a large margin. Khan got 5 million and Crawford got 5.5 million before PPV money.

    I guarantee you that Bud doesn't regret it. And it took FOREVER for PBC Welterweights to start fighting each other. Crawford wouldn't have gotten Danny, Porter, or Spence for a long ass time even if he had signed with PBC.

    The biggest difference between Crawford signing with Haymon and him renewing with Arum is that--

    with PBC, the network divide would not be the first and foremost obstacle in Bud facing off against the likes of Spence, Thurman, Porter, Garcia and Pacquiao.

    Of course Crawford being with PBC by itself would not guarantee automatic fights with those welters, like in the case of Errol being avoided by his PBC stablemates...but at the very least the difficulty of cross-promoter/cross-network negotiations would be non-existent. The fights, while not automatic, are within the realm of realistic possibility.

    There would be no Al Haymon advising these welterweights against making a fight with Bud, because Bud would be one of them. Their respective camps may advise their fighters to avoid Crawford like what they previously did to Spence, but that would already be beyond anybody else's control.

    Crawford simply chose to stay with Top Rank, because of the money or whatever reason he had. By doing so, he chose to have a big obstacle in front of him that definitely needs to be overcome before he can face off with the top welterweights he claims he wants to fight.

    It is that simple.

    Crawford gets paid well and fights regularly. Why would he want to move to PBC and sit on the shelf.

    Spence is in his prime and is lucky to get 1 fight per year

    Meh. I dont like it but its kinda a 'dont hate the player hate the game' thing. Al just semi succeeded at doing what everyone else wish they would have been able to do.

    Sucks for boxing but boxing has been deeply fractured long before PBC.

    Can’t say that when Bob just signed promotional/co-promotional deals with the whole 175 division and anybody outside that deal has to fight on ESPN to get a shot..

    Same thing DAZN did with the 160 division and clearly the message is if you want a shot you have to come to DAZN..

    PBC just happen to have majority of the credible147 division.. So what makes this different other than Bob is on the outside looking in..

    I have a hard time sympathizing with Old Bob when if had all the PBC WWs and Bud was on the outside he would exhaust all in-house fights before he considers matching anybody with Bud..

    With that being said this division of leagues sucks for us boxing fans as we are probably not getting enough of the fights we crave..

    This. I like Bradley, but he’s delusional.
