Video: Arum Reacts To Murata's Big Loss, Pacquiao-Haymon Pact

Japan's Ryota Murata failed to defend his WBA middleweight world title on Saturday, losing to mandatory challenger Rob Brant of the United States by unanimous decision.

He claimed the title last October after a rematch against France's Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam, whose previous decision over Murata was called into question due to controversial scoring.

Kudos to Top Rank for keeping their girls properly dressed, unlike Tecate.

In the background, Joe Cortez looks like older than Bob Arum. True Pac has a tax problem in US.:sad6::fu2:

Japanese hardcore fans expected it, and it happened. Another example of Olympic gold not translating into a great pro career. If he fought Charlotte he’d get knocked out.
