He hates Oscar De La Hoya who was his golden goose. Cause oscar decided to leave him and start his own promotional company, and then his next golden goose mayweather followed in Oscar De La Hoya foot prints, and manny tried to leave Bob Arum to go to GBP, Nonito Tried to Leave to go to GBP, so Basically anyone who is actually generating money for Bob Arum at one point wanted to leave him to go with Oscar De La Hoya.

Oscar He La Hoya is the reason Bob Arum wont do buisness with GBP. Oscar is boxing.

He's a scumbag greedy old bitter man...

He won't do business cause he knows his promotion company is on the ropes right now.. They couldn't even get Bradley a fight cause instead of doing business with them they rather let their fighter sit on the shelf

All of the above

He also wants to save face for not making a Mayweather fight

And if a fighter from another promotional company beats his fighter, they get all the spotlight why would he want that

And finally, he probably thinks that having that kind of ultimatum will result in a bunch of fighters signing to his company so they can get the good fights... He pretty much proved this with his Mares comments

I guess to summarize it... SELFISHNESS

Boxing will be a better place when he's gone

Where is the option for voting all of the above? Because all of those choices fit the bill of why Arum won't do business with GBP.

Bob Arum is worth 200 million.

He is 80 years old.

Being very conservative, lets assume he died at 90 and didnt make a single dime from today on or from interest.

He could spend $55,000 A DAY for the rest of his life and STILL not go bankrupt.

Arum won't do business with anyone unless he knows 100% his fighter will win, otherwise the other fighter would have to sign on to toprank.

Arum's been promoting boxing since before Oscar was even born.

Last year just the 2 fight involving Pacquiao sold more than all of GBP's PPV's combined.

Top Rank is in a league of their own. GBP doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence let alone co-promote on a Top Rank card.

And this ain't about greed. Arum has more money than anyone in the sport right now and Cotto, Marquez, Mosley, Bradley, Martinez etc all got career high paydays when they fought on Top Rank cards. If he was greedy he would be paying those guys peanuts like GBP does like when Ortiz got 2.5 mill to fight floyd when Bradley who is a even smaller draw got 5 mill to fight Pac
