But why be greedy at that age? He is not going to be around for much longer.

Enjoy the years you have left and spend it up.

I don't understand this guys obsession with money. He's not a young person anymore. How about you get out of the way of and actually go spend all of that money instead of continuing to be money hungry?

You wont be able to take all of that money with you. Try living a little and stop stalling big time fights.
He enjoys what he is doing so it probably helps him live longer. He might make it to 100. I am sure he does enjoy that 300 million. If he wants to go on a trip he goes first class. If he wants a nice house or a new car he buys it. Making the most possible money on promoting fights is an old habit of his. That's how he got that 300 million.

It's obvious he is enjoying himself doing what he is doing. He might surprise you and live a lot more years. I am sure he buys whatever he wants whenever he wants it. Meanwhile he is making money for his family. Warren Buffet is much older and richer than Arum and he goes to the office 5 days a week and eats his meals at Mc Donald's for 3 bucks a meal. He loves what he does too.

If you want to live a long time, never stop working. Bob loves his job and he's as sharp as he is at such an old age because he sticks to his routine and keeps working.

It's not greed. He's running a business. Even if he won't be around to spend the money, it's a family business and his relatives will continue to run the business when he dies.

Ever thought it's not really about the money? He's competing, and it's fun to compete, isn't it? This is living.

The money is just a way of keeping score.

Bob should use some of his money to build Fury vs. Wilder II into a megafight.

And then pay Pacquiao all the money he stole from him.

And give the rest to retired boxers in need.

Iíd like to see some concrete examples of what you mean by him being greedy.

Heís running a profitable company, Top Rank. That company is a corporate entity with employees and contracts to fulfill (with ESPN especially). That company will continue to exist long after heís gone.

Are you saying because heís old he should run it into the ground and try to start losing money ó or quit trying to make money? Because that wouldnít be responsible to the fighters he has under contract and the employees who work there who will carry on after heís gone. It wouldnít be responsible to his contracted partners like ESPN and the casinos and other venues he works with.

Exactly what would you have him do differently?
