He has to speak out loud.
The boxing world is still waiting for a firm word about the status of the expected triple bantamweight world championship between the sensational Japanese Naoya Inoue and the hard-beating Filipino world warrior John Riel Casimero.
The big fight, originally scheduled for April 25 in Las Vegas, has been postponed.
Experienced promoter Bob Arum said, however, that he would stage it either in September or in October.
————————— Casimero, who was already in the Las Vegas area where he was caught by the coronavirus pandemic, had decided to stay with his team.
Inoue stayed in his hometown of Japan, but Arum assured the dealers vowed to take the Japanese superstar to the United States for the Unification Championship.
Anyway, without a clear signal from Arum in which direction the Inoue-Casimero fight would go, Team Casimero has started to disintegrate.
Trainer Nonoy Neri was well reported on his way home to the Philippines. Partners like the famous conditioning guru Memo Heredia were stranded indefinitely in a training facility in Las Vegas.
————————— Casimero himself is said to have packed himself, and homecoming rites and protocols are being prepared in Ormoc City.
There is an urgent need for a clear instruction from Mr. Arum, who, as things stand today, was apparently strictly isolated.
As a sponsor, it is imperative that he give order and direction after a party involved begins to fall apart.
—————————- So far no word from Sean Gibbons, President of MP (Manny Pacquiao) Promotions dealing with Casimero.
Not even a word from the Inoue team in Japan.
It's a hot spot that Mr. Arum got into.
But whether he likes it or not, he has to say something clear at this moment of great uncertainty.
Stuttering, pardon, cannot be the name of the game. INQ
