Exclusive: Top Rank President Bob Arum explains the MGM Grand actions

By Kevin Davis


Karceno: never in the history of myself watching boxing have I seen such a mistake happen. Then to find out that it's not a mistake, makes it even worse. Undefeated WBO welterweight Champion Timothy 'Desert Storm' Bradley is clashing again in a rematch with megastar Manny Pacquiao, that is a close fight to call, but today at the final presser bout camps and promotional company Top Rank was greeted with posters of rival promotional companies posters of Mayweather vs Maidana. A very classless act on the MGM's part Richard Sturm the president of the company spoke with Arum after the event and tried to explain his actions. TRP President Bob Arum spoke directly to us about this display of disrespect.

Arum: "Well Richard was thinking hey, maybe some of these Filipinos can help sell that fight, because he told me that fight need help selling, so that's why he put the posters up, three weeks before the fight. what do you expect, he's fighting a 12-1 underdog, This is a slap in the face, but it's a sign of desperation on there part, Richard said hey we're having trouble selling tickets to that fight and we thought this would be a great way to sell some tickets."
