De La Hoya: We Won't Beg Bob Arum To Work With Us

By Bill Emes

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya said his company is "willing to work with anyone" to make the right fights happen. De La Hoya is a little frustrated that he can't do a co-promotion with Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank.

In a recent interview on BoxingScene.com, Arum said he was willing to pay Golden Boy a step-aside fee, and have their company logo displayed as a co-promoter, but he doesn't have any interest in doing a straight co-promotion with Golden Boy. De La Hoya is willing to make the right fights happen, but he won't beg to make those fights happen.

"I think Bob has his agendas, Bob has his plans and Golden Boy and the fans' best interests are not involved. He has his company, which Top Rank. He has his fighters. He does his own thing for his own benefit. That's the way he works and that's the way he is. Golden Boy is willing to work with anyone to make the fights. We're obviously not going to beg [for the fights]. 'Hey Bob please work with us.' The bottom line is, he doesn't want to work with us. What can we do?," De La Hoya said.

If the right situation comes along, De La Hoya said Golden Boy would be willing to take a fee for their boxer's services - if the opportunity was beneficial to the fans.

[QUOTE=BoxingGenius27;12704253]If Bob is willing to pay GBP step aside money AND post their banner during the event, I don't see what's the problem. I really don't. It's a win win for GBP. You get paid and you get your company…
