Bob Arum is a boxing realist, so he had no problem revealing that the numbers for Pacquiao vs Bradley III were underwhelming to say the least.
If Manny Pacquiao truly is retiring, he’s walking away at the right time.
The finale in a controversial trilogy, it did no better than Mayweather’s win over Andre Berto which had 550,000 buys. Add in the comments on gay marriage, and it was probably Manny’s last $20 million plus purse anyway, short of a rematch with Floyd.
