Next fight of Bob Arum is not determined yet.
Top Rank promotion has received permission from the Nevada State Athletic Commission to host their first series of boxing events in Las Vegas. Soon, Bob Arum's company will begin testing for coronavirus all participants of their events scheduled for June 9 and 11.
Bob Arum announced that he was awaiting the official approval of the Las Vegas authorities and athletic commission to organize boxing events without spectators in June and July. This should only be a formality, because such permission has already been obtained by UFC, which will return in Vegas on May 30.
Bob Arum, the promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) expressed serious doubts that the third fight of the “Gypsy King” with Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) will take place before October. The head of Top Rank explained that it is impossible to organize a duel of this level without the participation of spectators, and this will happen only when the ban on organizing public events is lifted.
On December 8th Bob Arum will turn 88 years young, and he is full of strength and energy. Recently, the famous promoter commented on skills and talents of Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs), the leader of the majority P4P ratings, against the virtuosos of Top Rank promotional organization, who are battling with the Mexican for the title of the best fighter in the world.
Boxing promoter Bob Arum believes that the leading MMA organization UFC does not have any more stars and at the moment is in for a very bad future, and its president, Dana White, is in despair. And this state of affairs forces White, according to Arum, to meet various parties in the boxing industry in the near future to try to enter a new, more promising market.
