Bob Arum and Oscar De La Hoya Mum Is the Word is Brilliant Promoting for Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather, JR Mega Fight

By “Bad” Brad Berkwitt

Recently RSR has been breaking news that Floyd Mayweather, JR. and Manny Pacquiao is a “Done Deal” with signatures only needed on the finalized contract from our “inside source” close to Team Mayweather.  Well, what a difference a week makes in the promotional lives of Bob Arum Head of Top Rank, INC and Oscar De La Hoya Head of Golden Boy Productions.  The Golden Boy has recanted his original statements, but has not directly come out and said this instead he has chosen Chief Executive Richard Schaefer to be his mouth piece.  On the other hand, Bob Arum has not directly said the fight is a “Done Deal”, but has funneled out just enough information that says the fight is almost a “Done Deal” raising the hopes of the boxing public. 

How big is this fight to boxing?  Put it like this, message boards everywhere have been discussing RSR articles and many others written by various websites on the net.  With heated discussions, this is a good thing for boxing, but make no mistake about it, it is exceptionally good for the fighter’s purses and the promoters pockets.  The internet boxing websites are a blaze with many very well written articles to include opinionated ones as well which are very interesting to read.  You even have the occasional groupie who is inspiring to be a journalist writing their thoughts as well on blogs and even those, are funny to read and generate publicity for what will be the biggest fight in boxing history come this November.

Great job for sure by Bob Arum and Oscar De La Hoya….
