The UFC President said, “You’re mad because this kid goes out and does what he does, the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, and he doesn’t sell himself. No! That’s your job, Bob. Listen, Bob Arum is done. He is done. I heard his son… Todd, the big guy usually keeps his mouth shut. But he’s been talking smack lately too. These guys are freaking out because, it’s over man!” 

Terence Crawford reigns as the WBO welterweight champion of the world and is currently the pound-for-pound best boxer. However, the American boxer has failed to find huge footfalls in his fights. This has seen the boxer vs promoter war come to the fore yet again.
