POV[edit]

There seems to be way too much editorializing in the article - it needs a fresh pair of eyes for improvement. B.Wind (talk) 01:15, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Don't agree. Give me an example. The controversy section is a fair representation of his public persona.Mwinog2777 (talk) 06:41, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Shoah Business?[edit]

Guys, do you even read your own sources?

http://www.doghouseboxing.com/Benz/J_Benz040409.htm in this article it pretty much says that dana white speaks badly about homosexuals, not bob arum. There's also no sign whatsoever of bob arum ever calling the holocaust a business and an inside joke, or that he feels "innately inclined to benefit as much as possible in terms of monetary value off his fighters".

You people need to delete the last paragraph entirely, its libel. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 148.201.129.254 (talk) 18:03, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Mayweather Saga? - NOPV???[edit]

Wow, seriously. This is the most absurd section I've ever read on Wikipedia. And why in God's name is the article locked??

I was going to select quotes, but the whole things is so absurd I will repaste it verbatim:

"He has come up with a plethora of excuses in recent years to prevent Floyd Mayweather from fighting Pacquiao. Despite public demand for a Mayweather-Pacquiao bout, Arum continues to match Pacquiao with washed up opponents coming off of loses and mediocre performances. Pacquiao, who appears to fear Mayweather, does whatever Arum tells him to do and gladly ducks a Mayweather fight even though he could make upwards of $50 million. Instead, Arum matches his cash cow with the likes of Josh Clottey and a mummified Shane Mosley.

The saga continues." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.223.176.156 (talk) 02:04, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
