Bob Arum was raised in an Orthodox Jewish household based in the Crown Heights, New York. While studying at high school he was highly interested in music, and sang as a backing vocalist. He was impressed by the abilities of Manny Pacquiao and stated him to be the Filipino Frank Sinatra. However, after graduating from high school he chose to study law, graduating with a degree in law from Harvard University, and then working for several years in the USA Department of Justice before he became interested in boxing in the 1970s. He used his business education to become a boxing promoter in 1979, which subsequently added huge sums to the overall size of Bob Arum’s net worth. Working as a boxing promoter gained him not only wealth but also popularity.

However, the path to fortune and fame was not an easy one, as during the eighties Arum had a great rivalry with fellow promoter Don King, and both promoted big fights in the eighties and nineties as they promoted Sugar Ray Leonard against Marvin Hagler, three fights between Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler, pitting Roberto Duran against Sugar Ray Leonard, two fights between Roberto Duran and Marvin Hagler, fights between Julio Cesar Chavez, Meldrick Taylor and Hector Camacho, as well as between Oscar De La Hoya and Felix Trinidad. He was the promoter of such fights as Evander Holyfield and George Foreman, Oscar De La Hoya and Fernando Vargas, the three fights between Manny Pacquiao and Erik Morales, as well as three fights between Marco A. Barrera and Erik Morales. His company is called promoter Top Rank, and fights are often held in Las Vegas. For his great contribution to boxing, Bob Arum has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Finally, in the personal life of the boxing promoter, he has been married twice. Together with his first wife, whose name is not revealed, Bob Arum had three children: Richard Arum, Elizabeth Arum and John Arum. Unfortunately, the latter died in a hiking accident in 2010. He married his second wife, Lovee Duboef, in 1991, with whom he has two stepchildren, Todd Duboef and Dena Duboef. They are highly involved in the business of boxing promotion, as Todd holds the position of the President, and Dena works as a Vice-President of Top Rank Company.

1In promoting champions like Muhammad Ali, Roberto Durán, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Alexis Arguello, Carlos Monzón, Iran Barkley, Thomas Hearns, Sugar Ray Leonard, 'Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini', James Toney, Terry Norris, Rafael Ruelas, Gabriel Ruelas and Oscar De La Hoya, with superfights such as Hagler-Leonard, Chavez-De La Hoya, Holyfield-Foreman, Foreman-Moorer, Leonard-Hearns, Hagler-Hearns, Ali-Frazier II and both Ali-Spinks fights, he has participated in most of the top-grossing fights in boxing history. Still, he has remained low profile in a highly visible sport.
2He graduated from New York University, where he was student body president, in 1953, and cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1956.
3His rise in the 1970s culminated at the New Orleans Superdome on September 15, 1978, where he promoted a then-record-tying four world title fights (Ali-Spinks II, Victor Galindez-Mike Rossman, Danny Lopez-Juan Malvares and Jorge Lujan-Albert Davila).
4Promoted the first fight he ever attended, Muhammad Ali's title bout with George Chuvalo in March, 1966, through a company he organized, Main Bout, Inc., and also promoted Ali's fights with Henry Cooper, Brian London, Karl Mildenberger, Cleveland Williams and Ernie Terrell prior to Ali's involuntary suspension from boxing.
5He left the Justice Department in 1965 and became a partner in Louis Nizer's law firm. He met football great Jim Brown, who introduced him to Muhammad Ali.
6In 1962, he was given the assignment of securing proceeds from the Floyd Patterson - Sonny Liston heavyweight title fight, which were rumored to be heading out of the country. While handling the resulting litigation, he met many of the biggest names in boxing and immediately became fascinated by the fistic world.
7One of his proudest promotional achievements came to life on April 10, 1980 in Atlantic City, when middleweight Frank "The Animal" Fletcher decisioned Ben Serrano, and ESPN's weekly "Top Rank Boxing" series was born.
8His finest achievement in boxing came on the night of November 5, 1994, when George Foreman shocked the world by knocking out IBF/WBA champion Michael Moorer. After the dramatic knockout, an ecstatic Arum rushed into the ring to embrace the two-time world heavyweight champion.
9World champions now fighting for him include Floyd Mayweather Jr., Erik Morales, Diego Corrales, Andrew Lewis, Jose Luis Castillo, Bones Adams, Paulie Ayala, Antonio Diaz and Eric Morel.
10He has three children, John, Richard and Elizabeth, from his previous marriage.
