Bob Arum is 81 years old and a crusty old man. Dude should be sitting on his millions in Palm Beach, Florida, just playing shuffleboard and beating the crowds to the early-bird special every night. But no, the old man is still grinding it out, raking in dough promoting his fighters while stunting the growth of the sport.
He was even asked by Nestor Gibbs recently about the possibility of having some of his Top Rank guys face Golden Boy Promotions fighters. He was so opposed to the idea, he hilariously dropped some unexpected f-bombs.
The first one comes at the :25 mark, and then another one flies when he talks about Lucas Matthysse a minute later:
So, to recap, Bob Arum is not interested in cross-promoting with Golden Boy even though it would make the sport of boxing better, and he says nobody knows who the f— Lucas Matthysse is. Awesomesauce.Google+
