  • Comments Thread For: Bob Arum: ESPN Stepped Up To Keep Lomachenko-Lopez Off Pay-Per-View

    Bob Arum remained confident, even as negotiations annoyingly became public knowledge, that his promotional company could finalize contracts for Vasiliy Lomachenko to fight Teofimo Lopez.

    I am glad that both ESPN and Arum stepped up! Kudos to them. Now if only DAZN would get its act together we could watch some interesting fights.

          This kid *****ed up a would be career high payday and on regular espn with millions watching and blew it.

          Arum is already plotting ways in his head to railroad his career now.


          Good thing Teofimo didn’t take this guys advice.

(I think what he says is pretty accurate that even if Teo delays the fight it might end up making him more in the long run.(obviously it would be a smarter choice to settle for a few hundred k more & make it now)(no different than Wilder with Dazn deal which allows him to stay with his crew while he made the same as he would've by signing with Dazn,even though everyone wanted AJ)
          Let this be a lesson folks. Ask for what you feel you deserve. Believe in your worth. Don’t just accept the scraps that someone gives you. It’ll take much longer to get ahead that way. Have some damn confidence and balls. Good luck !

                  I think how you people are trying to spin this is hilarious.

                  Both fighters agreed to no interm fights.

                  ESPN gave Bob 4.7 million for the fighters.

                  Original split was 3.5 and 1.2.

                  Lomachenko took a reduced purse to relieved the company and make this fight. His contractual guarantee is more than 3.5 million.

                  Teo complained and does not have such guarantee.

                  Bob said Teo needs to understand that this is not pre-covid and could not meet their financial demands which Teo Sr was on record saying 3M+

                  Team Teo threatened to kill the fight and fight their mandatory.

                  Team Lomachenko said if Lopez doesn't want the fight they would look elsewhere too.

                  Team Lomachenko gifted Teo 250k to make his purse an even 1.5 in an attempt to save the fight

                  Team Lopez accepted.

                  Lopez is a nobody and he got cornered. "Hold out for your worth"

                  Might as well get as much when your career is going to be ended Oct 17th right?

                    Lopez lost almost all neutral fan base support which if he looses will be crucial and all that for extra 250k. Yeah... a lesson, but nope... not the one you try to shovel here.
