The Gypsy King recently signed with the promoter and ESPN and collaboration with Frank Warren and BT Sport.
Shortly after it was announced by WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman that he’d been informed Tyson Fury did not want to take up the rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Instead he will go head-to-head with Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas on June 15 as he bids to build his profile across the globe.
Fury has had to face his fair share of criticism following the announcement, with some claiming that he is dodging both Wilder and Anthony Joshua.
Arum was recently asked when the next super-fight would take place for his new client, and his response was slightly worrying for British boxing fans.
“Who cares? As long as the fight is in the United States,” he said.
The two biggest UK boxing stars fighting in America would not sit well with many, but Arum claims it would generate huge revenue across the pond which is what should take precedent.
“Oh definitely [it would do well] in England, but the money is in the United States,” the 87-year-old added.
“In England, they’re gonna do well – what does ‘well’ mean? They’ll do a million homes, but they only get $13 a home.
“And there’s no pay-per-view in the United States if it’s in England because it’s in the afternoon [in America].
“So you do it in the United States and you do two million homes, which is then $70million into the promotion.
“And you can still do pay-per-view in England at 4am. Maybe you won’t do a million homes, you’ll do 600,000, but it’s a no-brainer.
“It’s all about the Benjamins… or the pounds. Wherever it makes the most financial sense, that’s where the fight should happen.”
Joshua will make his American debut on June 1 when he takes on the undefeated Jarrell Miller in his own back yard at Madison Square Garden.
Wilder fights two weeks prior to the bout against Dominic Breazeale, should both fighters triumph they will get another shot at negotiating the fight that everyone wants to see.
