Arum on Fury: “He makes me smile – that’s the main thing”


WBC World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury’s impulsiveness and unpredictability can sometimes make him difficult to work with, but his co-promoter Bob Arum finds it “hilarious” and “fun”.

“Call it eccentric and annoying, but I call it funny. It’s fun, said the 91-year-old aksakal
talkSPORT. Fury is a very smart guy, I like talking to him. This is an amazing personality, just like [Мухаммеда] Ali. I love being with people like that, so I would always prefer Tyson to remain Tyson than some monosyllabic tambourine.”

“This issue is settled.” Bob Arum about Usyk-Fury fight

Therefore, added the head of Top Rank, he “really likes everything related to Tyson”

“He makes me smile and I think that’s important,” summed up Robert.

This wasn’t the first time Arum compared Fury to Ali.
