Post Arum "Hispanic Fans Say Oscar Quit"

Former Top Rank head Bob Arum stated to writer Dan Rafael of USA Today that most Hispanic fans feel that Oscar De La Hoya quit in his last fight against Bernard Hopkins. He went to further state that the only reason De La Hoya bolted from Top Rank to join up with Hopkins is because Arum wouldn't agree to anymore big money guarantees on De La Hoya's future fights, particularly pointing out the guaranteed $25 million Oscar got for his bout with Hopkins.

Thats bull****, lets see Arum's old ass take a shot like that and get up. Hes just mad because Oscar can promote himself now and does not need top rank.

Hispanic fans are not the only ones saying that, Now that Oscar broke off from Arum he will probably talk all kinds of guff about Oscar to try and destroy his marquee name....

Arum sounds sour, A few months ago heck even days ago Arum wouldnt whisper one negative thing about Oscar because that was his biggest meal ticket...

Arum is just sour.

That's what happens when you cross a big boxing promoter, man: they badmouth and discredit you. Remember that Oscar is now the competition with his own reputable promotions company.

I'm not a big Oscar fan but I respect what he's done outside the ring. Of course those threatened by him are going to lash out.

Default Arum "Hispanic Fans Say Oscar Quit"

Oscar didn't quit because he wanted, he quit because hopkins made him quit, just like a few other fighters whom have got hit with that type of shot to the body....I think that Arum is just trying to shed some bad publicity on the De La Hoya/Hopkins joint venture...

Why shouldnt he????

On paper, Golden Boy will destroy the other big promoters especially since hopkins and de la hoya are more respected inside and outside the community and up and coming fighters can relate to both especially Hopkins while from a business standpoint they can relate to Oscar...Great move on each others behalfs.....

If Golden Boy can sign some heavyweights then that would put an end to the king era, as it seems Oscar is brushing arum away with quickness, Arum promotes a lot of little guys and latinos and thats what oscar is going after...

Arum is a west coast promoter-Oscar De la hoya is as well
King is a east coast promoter-Bernard Hopkins is as well


Who do you think majority will flock to????

because Don King is getting old and many of his events have
Who do you think majority will flock to????
I think that eventually golden boy productions will take over, become uneventful and controversail...And of cours Arum is going to hate because he stands to lose a lot of money due to the teaming up between hopkins and de la hoya
