ESPN columnist Brett Okamoto spoke about the possible departure of “pound” American Terence Crawford (37-0-0, 28 KO) from his promoter Bob Arum.
“Look, this is real, and you can talk about it. Crawford and Top Rank are not on the best terms right now. He is clearly unhappy that the promotion was never able to organize big fights for him. Top Rank believes that it is also to blame for this.
If Arum has publicly stated that he is losing money on Crawford, then this clearly indicates that they have problems. Top Rank could still fix this if it gets Crawford a big fight in early 2021. Todd Dubeuf said he re-attracted investors from the Middle East to negotiate with Pacquiao. Pacquiao told Top Rank that he is currently not bound by any contractual obligations.
Although, as for me, their paths will go their separate ways. Even if the fight with Pacquiao does take place, Terence already understands that there are other places for him. And Top Rank will definitely not cling to it, ”said Okamoto.
