Here's the interview where Bob Arum compared Floyd Mayweather to Goebbels
Bob Arum never exaggerates. Never.

A GOOD BOXING promoter will do pretty much anything to sell a fight (just ask Frank Warren and his friends in the Luxembourg Boxing Federation).

But it’s not difficult to see that Bob Arum, chief of fight giant Top Rank Promotions, genuinely does not like Floyd Mayweather.

It’s not just because Mayweather keeps dodging the Fight of All Eternity™ against the golden boy of Arum’s stable, Manny Pacquiao. No, it’s because he keeps trotting out the same tired excuses, namely Pacquiao’s alleged reluctance to agree to certain anti-doping controls.

Camp Pacquiao insist that there’s no such issue and they’re getting a little bit peeved that they keep getting asked about it. It was really only a matter of time before Arum compared Mayweather to… emmm, Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

For two years Pacquiao has said that he will take any drug test — whether it’s USADA or WADA, whoever administers it — so why is that still being talked about by Mayweather?

You see Mayweather is from the school of propaganda that Joseph Goebbels, who was Hitler’s publicist, adopted. The more you say things over and over again the more people believe them. The fact is clear that Pacquiao has agreed to unlimited drug testing so that is not an issue.
