I haven't been on in a min but ice u just gonna slander me lol. bro I'm born in da Bronx and grew up in Bama Tuskegee at that I know and have experienced racism. Bob executive had that interview about NBF no black fighters. Oscar had his racist emails. u got black fighters being denied opportunities and having to lawyer up. it's all cuz they don't want no more Floyd mayweathers..Mayweathers.Mayweather.. it's easy to see the shit. it's hilarious how Shakur now gets the Valdez fight after buds lawsuit... Bob think he slick.

i think its a far reach to imply that Bob scrambled to make Shakur/Valdez in order to prove he's not racist against blacks. this isnt exactly a blockbuster fight that screams "you see, he does like blacks!" tbe fight has been mentioned for quite a while now.

Shakur been calling Valdez out for a while. bod kept talking bout making Valdez novelette. Shakur been calling lo a out as well. add in bud and Shakur are real close it isn't as far fetched

Im with Aneed here. I doubt that Arum and them were caught off guard, there were probably rumblings in their circles of the lawsuit coming and in such a situation with bud being as close to Stevenson and as great of a talent he is, its not far fetched that Bob pushed hard to get that fight locked to get insurrection out of Shakurs mind. But Austin is right in the sense that this isnt some blockbuster as a whole, but it definitely is for Shakur and thats all Bob would need really.

I still dont think he's racist. No scratch that, I think he is racist lol, but I dont think his racism has any influence on his promoting practices.

while its not a blockbuster, it is a significant fight. ya really think this significant a fight was just put together over night?? fights like these are usually a process in terms of putting together i would think. i doubt Bob is at all threatened by this lawsuit, thus i doubt this Shakur fight was rapidly put together as any type of response to the lawsuit.

and Shakur has his own career and money to worry about and has to be pleased thus far with his time at TR. i doubt he'd be down with any type of mutiny against Bob lol.

Well that I agree, I dont think Shakur is going to ditch bob given whats on the exhibit table. But stay tuned, we'll see what this lawsuit leads to lol. Bob is a good place to be for young talent, but when you get up there if you are that good and wanna make the biggest bank, you're a fool to stay. Thats been the pattern of Arum fighters. I think its too soon for Shakur to rock the boat. He need to worry about training and self promotion.

I dated a black girl for almost 2 years and I learned a lottt. It opened my eyes to subtle racism that I never perceived before.

My other observation is that I really think the victim mentality that has pervaded that culure has grown to a level that regularly defies the most basic of logic. This is one of those instances.
