Is Bob Arum Finally Telling the Truth?!? 

Top Rank boss Bob Arum certainly deserves a citation in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations for his oft-quoted confession, "Yesterday I was lying. Today I'm telling the truth."

For the world of boxing, that is considered candor.

When Arum speaks, it is sometimes hard to decipher whether he thinks it is yesterday or today. But even Arum can come up with some truthful remarks once in a while, especially when it comes to critiquing his rivals.

In a piece by Kevin Iole on Dec. 4 on the online edition of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Arum stated why he did not want to let executives at HBO choose opponents for undefeated junior welterweight Miguel Cotto and why he will have Top Rank do the matchmaking and then try to sell the fights to a TV network:

"If you take their money, then they have the right to make the fights, and they have morons making the fights," Arum said.

Now, what sport could even hope to provide better quotes than boxing?

That story is chockablock with interesting stuff, including a paraphrase from Ross Greenburg where he expresses bewilderment that fighters won't take less money to appear on HBO.

Read the whole thing.
