If Bud want the fight, just leave top rank like Manny did. That really is the simplest solution. The longer he stays with Bob, the more I'm thinking he just enjoy the attention and don't really want the fights at all
Not that simple if he has a contract. Could end up missing years of his career like Ward did with GoosenIf Bud want the fight, just leave top rank like Manny did.

That's a lot of speculation there. Wasnt that long ago that he signed a contract extension with Arum either so if there's no release clause then it's not a question of simply dropping dough, especially as he is one of Arum's only high profile stars left. I would actually like it if you were right, but I don't think you areCan't be scared to make money.
Bob sued Floyd for the 8 million left on his contract. By the time he had to actually pay, he already had 3 fights including the one with Oscar making over 100m
The 8 wasn't nothing.
I'm sure haymon will give Bud an advance. And 3 fights with PBC will be way more than anything he gets staying on top rank fighting on ESPN.
At this rate Bud will fight bums for the next 8-10 years until some prospect comes along and put him down
There actually has to be a buyout clause for him to do that. If there isn't a buyout clause then Arum has to agree to letting Crawford buy himself out of his contract.Yeah, he could just buy his way out. Same exact thing Floyd did when Bob got in the way of him and Oscar
You some points.Thing is Bob dirty.
He killed HBO boxing by signing the deal with ESPN.
Then he has his top guys Manny, Loma and Bud fighting on ESPN making scraps instead of HBO making big dollars.
Manny fought Jeff Horn in the middle of the day on regular ass ESPN. Not even ESPN plus. That had to been the final straw, cuz Manny leaves top rank and next thing you know he's fighting back to back ppv's as the main event as he should be.
I don't know how Bud didn't go right along with him.
Now he doing interviews claiming everybody scared of him. Knowing damn well if he came to PBC with Manny he'd have every fighter he wants lined up ready to go.
It's just dishonest business. I'm becoming less and less of a fan of Bud, bcuz he's insulting the intelligence of the fans who have been here before with Bob and his fighters.
It just stings a little more bcuz he's black. Normally it's the foreign fighters with the mislead loyalty. Not our folk. Wtf he ain't come to PBC from the jump. It's clearly the banner for black fighters.
