Thrilla in Manila: UNFORGETTABLE…. Bob Arum


PhilBoxing.com




Las Vegas, April 9, 2014 -- "It was after the 'Thrilla'. One of the greatest fights I’ve ever seen. Leaving the Araneta Coliseum and it was around noon. And looking up, I’ve never seen a sun so bright…. blinded everybody. I’ll never forget that moment as long as I live.” --Bob Arum, April 9, 2014

Top Rank chief Bob Arum strikes again---ranting against everyone but himself at the Hollywood Theater.

LA Times’ Bill Dwyer summed it up best, ”There are axioms in life. One of them is never mess with the IRS. Another is never miss an Arum press conference.”

“Res Ipsa Loquituras,” an old but apt Latin phrase, popular with lawyers, is more like it.

Translation: “THE THING SPEAKS FOR ITSELF”
