Arum is really making a fool of himself and embarrassing the sport of boxing.
Not only has his “handpicked” doctor is giving him an excuse not the make Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, sources tell me that Roth hasn’t even seen Pacquiao since he sticthed him up, so he has no clue how the cut has healed.
This is truly pathetic on Arum’s part.
Jeffrey Roth, the Las Vegas plastic surgeon who stitched up the cut immediately after the fight, has informed Arum that Pacquiao will not be able to spar until April 1, which ironically is also April Fools’ Day. “I’m not on an expert on that and neither are you. Jeffrey Roth is saying he should be good to go on April 1. If he’s fighting on May 5, that’s a problem, because he wouldn’t have the time to spar,” Arum would explain to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports, essentially ruling out the possibility of Pacquiao facing Floyd Mayweather on his planned May 5 return to the ring. It should be noted that, according to Iole, Dr. Roth is currently dating Bob Arum’s stepdaughter.
So we are suppose to believe a doctor that is dating Bob Arum’s stepdaughter?
If Arum is so sure Manny can’t fight on May 5th he shouldn’t have any problems having a doctor who isn’t sleeping with a member of his family look at the cut right?
Bob Arum thinks we are all idiots don’t let him get away with it.
