Bob Arum Talks To TBC – People like to call him “octogenarian” promoter Bob Arum, but few of any age could keep the type of schedule the veteran Hall of Fame promoter maintains. In this latest segment, our roving cameraman Marcelino Castillo catches up with “Uncle” Bob in Los Angeles. He was there with his latest charge from the Philippines Jerwin Ancajas as they hosted an open workout. Ancajas (28-1-1) holds the IBF world title in the crowded super flyweight division and he is slated to defend it against Israel Gonzalez (21-1) in the main event of Top Rank on ESPN”s offering for February 3rd.
From there, the conversation turned to several other fighters on the Top Rank roster, namely Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez and Vasyl Lomachenko. Arum guides both fighters and Lomachenko is perhaps the glossiest jewel on the TR roster and it is always interesting to hear Arum’s mind at work. Ramirez is also slated to defend his 168-pound WBO world title against late replacement Habib Ahmed on the same card as Ancajas vs Gonzalez.
