In a video interview with talkSPORT, top-ranked promoter Bob Arum talks about next year’s company plans, the return of Tyson Fury, the potential problems posed by the new COVID-19 variant, and finally Terence Crawford. We will also touch on the subject of free agents after he completes the contract with the company. When Arum asked directly about whether to work with Crawford in the future, Arum said:
“I think Terence Crawford is clearly one of the best fighters in the world today. He’s very skilled. Unfortunately, he’s been attracting pay-per-view for some reason. Does not indicate that.
“So we put him in the best possible fight, unfortunately we lost money in every fight he went, and he continues to insist — and I’m his You can understand the view —’I’m the best, I should be rewarded like the best’, so if anyone comes and raises the money Crawford is asking for, he If you’re going to make more money, you should fight for other promoters.
“We’re really at the limit of what we can pay him, maybe someone will pay him more, and we’ll be able to make a profit, it’s obviously a business, and I’m. It’s okay for the contractual free agent fighter (Terrence) to have a better opportunity to fight for other promotional companies and fighter looking for more money. I think it’s perfectly legal, it’s a business. It happens in every sport.
“What I hate in this sport is a contracted fighter who experiences a legal tactic to break the contract. But Terrence doesn’t do that. Terrence keeps the contract with us and I We kept the deal with Terence. If he can make more money from someone else, another company from what we are willing to pay, he should take it. He does. It would be foolish not to do it. “
