I disagree with taking the tune-up fight.This a dangerous fight for Spence coming off that car accident, Danny hit hard as fuck..
I think Spence should’ve took a tune up fight..
You talking about from Bob's stand point?What exactly do people expect of Crawford when they say "promote himself"?
An unapologetic Arum doubled down on his controversial Crawford comments and blamed Crawford’s team for fueling their drama in a BoxingScene.com story posted Monday.
“I don’t give a sh-t,” Arum told BoxingScene.com. “I don’t care because what (Crawford’s team) did was reprehensible. The lawyer (Kinney) sent a letter to us. OK, that’s fine. That’s what lawyers do. But you don’t release it to the press. All of this should have been behind closed doors, like what men do. I’m not going to take this sh-t. I’m just not going to do it because the truth is, I’ve lost money with this guy.”
Arum informed BoxingScene.com that he believes McIntyre leaked details of Crawford’s contract to The Athletic for a story posted to that website November 13, the day before the Crawford-Brook bout. The 88-year-old promoter was especially bothered by the revelation that he had promised to pay Crawford $1 million if Top Rank didn’t make an offer in 2020 to Spence for a welterweight title unification fight with Crawford.
Arum also told BoxingScene.com that he has removed himself from future dealings with Crawford and his team. He said his stepson, Top Rank president Todd duBoef, will handle all Crawford-related interactions moving forward.
It doesn't have to be that extreme. It never has to be that extreme. But you gotta work.They want Crawford to act an Ass....cause that's what they want to see from a Black man... It's bullshit.. Like somebody else said, EU fighters don't have to do all that. Loma barely speak English and they tried to create the great White Hype with him... You see these Black and Latino fighters on PBC getting promo and big fights without having to 'promote themselves'. TR did a poor job promoting Crawford, but I think he allowed it.
