PPV Boxing - Bob Arum makes no bones about it

Bob Arum makes no bones about it; if you haven't cultivated your fighter into an attraction or a pay-per-view franchise, it will be difficult for them to make a deal with one of their clients that are. In other words, if you're a guy just fighting on HBO every six or seven months in small, half-empty ballrooms, you're probably going to be stuck there.

"I resent guys who want to be 'free riders.' Y' know, if Richard Schaefer has a guy and he's done pay-per-view with the guy, well, then there's something to talk about because Schaefer's put his ass up to promote the guy on pay-per-view. But guys who don't promote their fights on pay-per-view and then want to put him in a fight where there's no recognizable A-side OR if they go against an A-side pay-per-view attraction, then they start the sh*t, 'Well, he's the ‘champeen’; he knocked out this guy in two rounds and therefore, he's entitled to a 50-50 split.' 

"What the f**k are they talking about?!"
