    I dont like throwing the word racist out there because it can be proven wrong and it no matter what, Arum will always be considered racist now.

    idk what is true but it seems more like a frustration with the politics of Boxing and his age when all the other top welterweights are with PBC

    And maybe he is. POC constantly get confronted with racist assholes, with micro-aggressions usually they either don’t have the voice to speak out or they just let it go. Dismissing it is what has always happened and it should stop especially from (and I say this because I am one) a parent of a child of color.

    And maybe he is not. For someone thats been in the industry for years and have dealt with many African American boxers and not once has been called a racist. He might be a gigantic piece of shit, which im sure is accurate, but I am not a fan of putting this out in the public.

    if recent history has taught us anything is that there are plenty of examples of people being POS flying in the radar. I guess my issue with your post was the flippant way you dismissed it by saying “good ole race card” like here we go again.

    I'm always going to side with the fighter. They're the ones putting their health and safety on the line. A lot (maybe all) of these promoters are leeches imo
