So true. Everywhere Arum, DuBoef, De La Hoya, Schaefer et al. go they should be hit with this question. What the fu*k is their excuse for what they're doing?
I suppose boxing can be a tough gig for journalists, because there are a much smaller number of big players compared to other sports, and if they have an issue with you then you're going to have a bad time.
