Pacquiao vs Bradley II: Bob Arum slams MGM Grand for Mayweather posters, Golden Boy, Floyd, and everyone else

Bob Arum was peeved today, and you know what happens when Bob Arum gets peeved: he starts taking major league shots at rivals.

As we mentioned earlier today, Bob Arum got going on one of his trademark tangents today at the Pacquiao-Bradley final press conference, taking shots at Golden Boy, Showtime, Floyd Mayweather, Adrien Broner, maybe Amir Khan, and especially the MGM Grand, which is hosting this fight on Saturday night.

Here's the full rundown of what Arum had to say:

"I'm not gonna say it. I know that, yeah, fff -- hell with it. I know that in the Venetian, they wouldn't make a mistake like this. They knew what fight they were scheduled, three or four days, and they wouldn't have a 12-to-1 fight all over the building, that's going to take place three weeks from next Saturday. But that's why one company makes a billion dollars a quarter, and the other hustles to pay its debt. There it is! There it is! Say it like it is.

"OK, uh... the, uh, we're gonna have a press conference for the undercard, televised undercard -- what time tomorrow? 11 am in the press room. They are three really good fights. All fights, maybe not the biggest name in the world, but all fights that are even money or 2-to-1, unlike 15-to-1 fights with a big guy who oughta be locked up for the way he tweets. But again, you pay your money, you take your choice!

"Also, none of the fighters on the card had to pay anybody off to get on the card, unlike how some other people operate on some other networks. Right? That was an old tactic that Frankie Carbo used. It doesn't go with HBO or with Top Rank. So thank you all for coming, we're gonna pose the fighters now, and if whatever I said was incendiary, I'm an old guy, and I apologize."
