If Floyd gets Mayweather Promotions off the ground when he retires I suspect Arum won't do business with them for the same reason.
1) Mayweather promotions is not going to do as well as Multi platinum selling Philthy Rich Records

2) bob arum likes keeping fights in house so he can rob his fighters.

3) arum is threatened by GBP's rise and position now so he wants to try and destroy the competition

4) why the fcuk is Floyd wearing pink these days,makes him look more gay then he is

Arum a ****ing goon. Heard him proclaim Mayweather was the best fighter he has seen in 30 years, and since the break up, nothing but **** talk.

Bitter, powerful, old ass white man. Grudges in this bidness last a loooooong time.

Keeping things in house. Also the risk factor, if his fighter lost to a golden boy fighter he'd essentially feed his product to a promoters product.

The same reason he dislikes Mayweather, they both went independent and took care of their own promotion. Arum seems to take that personal.

He wants to keep all the money in house and GBP are the next biggest promoters out there. Keeping the money out of their hands is priority number 2.

GREED AND CORRUPTION!

I think Arum is FIXING FIGHTS and he is Robbing his fighters! And if he has to open his books and work together with another Promoter, then he will lose out on a lot of money because he won't privately be able to ROB HIS FIGHTERS like he been doing. So when you work in house you can keep everything PRIVATE and your fighters have no say or can have any type of demands (LIKE DRUG TESTING)...

Also Arum like to deal with Push Over Managers like Michael Koncz, they are probably working together behind the sense and robbing the hell out of Pacquiao

He don't want to do business with someone like Al Haymon or Richard Schaefer...because he knows they are no Push Overs and will be on Top of all the Finance for a Major Fight...sure Top Rank and GBP can come together and do a CHEAP Fight...but for Mega Bouts(Alvarez vs Chavez Jr, Mayweather vs Pacquiao)...I don't see them working together anytime soon for a HUGE EVENT!

GBP blatantly, vehemently, and disturbingly tried to taint the image of Top Rank's biggest money maker in Pacquiao back 2010 with the steroid allegations. Have ya'll forgot about that? Oscar even alleged Pacquiao beating him to steroids, as he referenced Pacquiao's punching power to that of Mosley, and Vargas shortly after having been vehement in making people believe that Pacquiao couldn't punch 4 sh1t. Even Schaeffer was in on the campaign, as he questioned Pac's legitimacy in the sport. Ya'll forgot this sh1t? Arum, subsequently proclaimed that he would no longer do bussiness with GBP. However, a little later after the Mayweather fight fell through Arum tried to make the 3rd fight with Marquez, yet Schaeffer was vehement that Pacquiao take OST against any GBP fighter he faced; as schaeffer wanted to please Mayweather. That killed the Marquez fight, as well as pissing Arum off.

I also remember Oscar saying that he wanted to get rid of all the promoters in boxing and dominate boxing like Dana White of the UfC. Evidently, that also pissed Arum off....

Don't expect sh1t to get better
