Thanks for that.
I like Todd, and I sincerely hope when he takes over fully, he'll run it without the pettiness and bitterness of Arum (but this is boxing, and since when do things ever get better?).
However, whilst he's right about GBP's media posturing being the wrong way to do business - it's obvious Arum has been preventing fights made with GBP. Bob came out and said he wouldn't make fights with GBP after the insinuations Oscar made about Pac being on PEDs in support of Floyd. Since then, we've had no f-cking fights between these two companies.
He also tried to destroy GBP by cherry-picking their fighters, luring them with a fight against Pac (JMM, Shane).
So Bob and Todd can talk about business models and GBP being tied up with Showtime or whatever the fook but the truth is, TR don't want to do business with GBP. They made a conscious decision to go this way.
So Todd can talk about catching the NBA and NFL - but how can we take any of that seriously when his company is stunting the growth of the sport by obstructing so many match-ups?
