In the 1970s and ’80s, Top Rank founder and CEO Bob Arum was one of the first promoters to harness the power of closed-circuit and pay-per-view models of selling televised fights. He later parlayed this knowledge into ground-breaking deals with HBO, Showtime, ABC and a host of other networks. Now, Top Rank works with ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports, to bring boxing back to the masses.
