By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum now seems to be coming to terms with the Manny Pacquiao vs. Tim Bradley III fight not bringing in big numbers on HBO pay-per-view last Saturday night. Arum was initially talking about the Pacquiao vs. Bradley III fight bringing in between 700,000 and 800,000 pay-per-view buys on HBO. Arum is now talking about the fight bringing in 400,000 and 500,000, and he’s not happy with those numbers, according to Dan Rafael. What a disappointment.
If Arum had taken a poll or asked yours truly whether it was a good idea for him to trot out Bradley for yet another fight against Pacquiao, I think the 84-year-old Top Rank promoter would have found out that it was horrible idea.
