Bob Arum has admitted he was ‘completely wrong’ for his explosive outburst at Kate Abdo. 

The veteran boxing promoter delivered an expletive-ridden rant about the British broadcaster after she was told to arrange a face-off between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder during the press conference before their fight.

Arum, who is Fury’s promoter, also claimed that Abdo apparently showed favouritism to the Bronze Bomber during the press conference.

In an interview with iFL TV, Arum said he shouldn’t have directed his anger at Abdo for doing what she was told to do.

He said: ‘As far as Kate is concerned, I was completely wrong. We had made a deal with the producer televising the weigh-in and the deal was made on behalf of Top Rank and PBC and the producer agreed no stare-down.

‘And when she called for a stare-down, particularly after seeing the animosity, verbally, at that press conference, I exploded but it wasn’t her fault.
