    Top Rank signed Taylor so they could have him fighting in the US on ESPN.

    He's not well known in the US right now, so they obviously wouldn't have been looking at this fight as a money maker, which made them vulnerable to being outbid by another promoter who wanted to stage it in the UK, where it would make money.

    Looks to me like Arum, or whoever was in control of the bid for Top Rank, just got outflanked and outsmarted by Sampson.

        The Godfather Bob Arum

        Ultimately, the Godfather Arum is making multiple power moves recruiting good fighters, but also losing purse bids, this is not the first one.

                    Yeah. He left Cyclone Boxing to sign with Bobfather a few weeks ago.
