THE ART OF MAKING BIG FIGHTS

Promoter Bob Arum tells John Dennen what he’s learned and how he will bridge the promotional divide to make the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematch

Highlighting the best of the week’s stories WWW.BOXINGNEWSONLINE.NET

WHEN Bob Arum talks, you listen. The veteran promoter has worked with Muhammad Ali amongst other luminaries in the sport. Currently as head of promotional behemoth Top Rank he represents some of the best fighters of the present day, including Vasyl Lomachenko and Terence Crawford. He is also guiding Tyson Fury, whom he co-promotes with Frank Warren, as the former heavyweight champion sets out to conquer America.

On Saturday (September 14) Fury will have his second bout in Las Vegas when he fights Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena. “He became a huge entertainer,” Arum said of Fury. “There’s nobody like him in boxing. People can’t get enough of him on television. He says the most outlandish things but in a clever, intelligent way. He’s a dream to promote. And he’s a good fighter. He’s a really good fighter. [His previous opponent, Tom] Schwarz isn’t bad. Nobody’s beaten him. Nobody beat him, until Fury made him look silly. This Swedish guy that he’s fighting, Wallin, nobody’s beaten him. And he’s a big six foot six Swede. It’s the kind of fight that he should take, that he should have.”
