  • Comments Thread For: Spence: Arum Is Doing Crawford Dirty; Promotes Lomachenko More

    LAS VEGAS Errol Spence Jr. couldn't help himself. The unbeaten IBF welterweight champion chastised promoter Bob Arum once Spence learned that the Terence Crawford-Amir Khan fight likely drew less than half the pay-per-view buys as his win against Mikey Garcia produced last month. A satisfied Spence smiled as he discussed that situation with BoxingScene.com on Friday following a weigh-in for the Robert Easter Jr.-Rances Barthelemy fight Saturday night at The Cosmopolitan.

    Lomachenko is better fighter and Arum also has/had better inhouse fights for him.

    Lomachenko has bigger potential than Crawford.

      People will attempt to discredit Spence's words here but he's absolutely right about Top Rank's failures.

      The PPV sales, viewership and attendance numbers show this clearly.

      PBC has 76% of boxing viewing audience to date in 2019.

      That doesn't include their share of the PPV market (closer to 90%)

      And their attendance numbers are more consistent.

      These are facts. Despite what writers say.

        LOL Spence trying to stir up the TR pot...but idk that he's wrong in anything he said.

        I still don't f#cking get the Loma push & these random guys with 40 letters in their names that are NEVER gonna be THAT popular in the US. All these cats are talented obviously, but good mfing luck making a foreign guy who's not Latino popular in the US. Bud is the guy you should be pushing the most cuz he's got the most upside if he's pushed correctly.

        Not that Bud is doing himself any favors cuz he's not, but all the same TR should use what Bud gives them. Push him as the surly mfer who doesn't wanna talk to the media, but is an amazing talent who only wants to be the #1 guy in every division he's fought in (& so far he's done that in 2 of them).

          What was racial about his comments? Everything he said was true lol They didn't promote the fight until about 6 days before it took place.

                Believe it or not, having a little bit of charm and personality means alot in Boxing and Crawford doesnt have it. None. He isnt promotable.

                With guys like Crawford, in-ring performance and level of competition should speak for itself but he cant even do that.. if he was with PBC and got to mix it up, hed be better off.

                  Why try and spin race or racism into this. His points were reasonable even if you disagree.

                  It's almost like you're saying "ignore what he said" he is a racist.

                    I wonder how this will go over with fans. A fighter who was built up as the boogeyman now talking about 50-50 ain't really good...

                    Also you can poke holes in what he said as well Easter Jr. fight got zero promotion. He said Porter couldn't sell out a family dinner, the same Porter that fought on Fox. Only fight Fox went all out for was his frfr.
