Dana White Hopes Boxing Does Great, But Blasts Bob Arum | UFC NEWS


“I’m happy for them. Whenever boxing does good things and they pull killer pay-per-view (numbers), I’m always watching to see what they do on pay-per-view. And I’m not like those (expletives), they did this much, I’m happy for them. I want to see combat sports do better. I want to see boxing pull bigger numbers. I’m not Bob Arum that crusty (expletive). I’m not out there smashing everything we do, and saying negative things about boxing. Boxing is (expletive) great it’s an incredible sport. I wouldn’t be sitting here right now if it wasn’t for the sport of boxing. I’m not going to play Bob Arum’s little (expletive) game… That’s what they do, they went head to head the same night on TV. They’re crazy. Bob (Arum) is a (expletive). For some reason he hates the fact that this sport is doing well, other guys are able to make money, other athletes are able to perform and do great things. For some reason that bothers that old bastard.”

  1. Bitch ass Greg J says:

    Bob Arum is just like Don King. Manny Pacquiao needs to break free from this guy. That ridiculous split decision Bradley got over Pacquiao had Bob Arum written all over it. Even the controversial Pacquiao win over Marquez left us all wondering what happened. Now he gets to stage a more lucrative fight with Paquiao-Marquez 4. This was the plan all along. Once Pacquiao retires boxing is headed downhill.

  2. Dee says:

    No Dana don’t retract. You started this entire beef. You came out blasting the entire boxing industry for quite some time, bragging about your numbers and all that and now Boxing is kicking your @$$. Let it go. I love boxing and will always be a fan. Dana’s emotion is constantly getting the best of him.

  3. Noah says:

    Mr White, you need to shut your fucking mouth up!

  4. Wsheets says:

    Uh, get your shit straight. Boxing numbers shit on MMA once a year, maybe twice. Without mayweather or pacqiou boxing would be dead. No one wants to watch guys go 30 minutes without knocking each other out, and that’s all that boxing is now.
