Earlier this week, boxing promoter Bob Arum spoke to the media (Kevin Iole, Yahoo.com) in a bit of a rant over certain things such as allotted tickets, hotel accommodations and such. These were obligations Arum said that MGM Grand needed to fulfill. Arum stated to the media publication that he needed to have the boxing tickets (for Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao) and hotel rooms secured for the numerous commitments that Pacman had made to people from the Philippines.
Arum wanted to know
where the tickets were and hotel accommodations.
Speaking to the publication, Arum stated:
“They (the MGM) are going around saying, ‘The fight, the fight, blah, blah, blah,’ but they got nothing. They have no contract. Nothing. We haven’t even seen a draft."
“What is happening now is absolutely intolerable. For the MGM to think that everything is resolved and so forth, when nobody has even discussed terms, is the most insane thing ever.”
Since this became public, CEO of Mayweather promotions Leonard Ellerbe told the Las Vegas Sun that everything was basically ok and that the tickets were being delivered.
