While everyone is eyeing on the upcoming super fight happening on September 16 and the Canelo vs GGG tickets are going to be sold out, Well-renowned promotor Bob Arum has his thoughts about the Canelo Golovkin and Mayweather McGregor fights.
During several of his press conferences and sideline interviews, he stated that he is more interested in watching the Canelo Golovkin fight than the Mayweather and McGregor bout. He mentioned as well that the Mayweather McGregor mega fight is not even a legitimate boxing match. The middleweight fight on September 16 is more interesting and entertaining for him.
There will always be a guy who is a sucker to fall in and watch the Mayweather McGregor fight and he is not happy with that. They will be paying a premium amount of money just to watch a well-promoted fight but it will not be their worthwhile; they just in for the hype between an MMA fighter and a professional boxer. He, however, encourages fans to rather watch a more exciting and explosive fight and he is referring to the Canelo Golovkin bout. He stands to what he says and stated that he is not biased as well since he is not promoting either of the fights; it his opinion and what he feels about it.
On the brighter side of the page, Bob Arum is impressed with the people behind UFC in doing a crossover fight and reached to a wider audience. It caught the attention of millions and at the same time, they wanted to have a healthy relationship with the MMA industry. McGregor will be the very first professional MMA fighter to fight in the boxing ring and probably it will entice other fighters to step in the boxing scenario as well, who knows, but then again it will be another story to tell once they see this happening in the near future.
