SBOBET An oversized photo of superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is festooned on the side of the MGM Grand and has for several years greeted visitors who are heading East on Tropicana Ave. toward Las Vegas Blvd.
SBO But it is not that smiling visage of boxing’s pound-for-pound king which has made Top Rank CEO Bob Arum so irate. That photo is there as a result of a contract, and Arum said he is not bothered by it.
He is, however, extraordinarily irate by the prominent advertising in and around the casino for the May 3 Mayweather fight at the MGM against Marcos Maidana. During Wednesday’s news conference to promote Saturday’s rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, and later in a lengthy and explosive interview with Yahoo Sports, Arum unloaded on Richard Sturm, the president and chief operating officer of MGM Resorts Entertainment and Sports, for being responsible for so much Mayweather advertising.
ผลบอลสด Boxer Manny Pacquiao made his regular pre-fight appearance Wednesday on ABC’s late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” but this time around, the Pacman was upstaged a bit.
Pacquiao regularly appears on Kimmel’s show to help promote his next fight, in this case his April 12 pay-per-view rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the WBO welterweight title against unbeaten Timothy Bradley.
ผลบอล SBOBET Usually, Pacquiao is the biggest star, but this time around, that was not the case. The first guest on the show was former President Bill Clinton, whose segment went long and forced Pacquiao’s to be cut a bit short.
Clinton, though, heartily endorsed Pacquiao, who is a congressman in the Philippines. Clinton said he hoped that Pacquiao would one day be elected the country’s president.
He didn’t say it in so many words, but the impact was obvious. Now, Clinton was elected as a liberal, and Pacquiao has very conservative views, particularly on social issues. But Clinton, who has met Pacquiao several times, is clearly impressed by him personally.
