I also doubt they believe Mares beats Donaire so they are just using this as a publicity stunt. My take anyhow. I'll be shocked if either side makes a serious offer. GBP are free to talk now because of the Arce fight. Nothing can even be discussed until after that. I'll bet Mares has another opponent before that with GBP saying TR wouldn't talk to them.
Oscar has shown more desire to put his fighters at risk with the exception of Canelo. Khan and Ortiz were both challenged relatively early in their careers with very tough fights. Broner too is taking a tough challenge directly at LW. I think they are willing to make the Donaire, fight and they believe in his chances. They can not come close to that money with any other fight. Oscar as a fighter didn't duck any body I don't see why he is going to push his fighters duck difficult challenges. A lot of what we say is going to be a speculation as nobody in here know all the details. That's just my feeling. You make some valid point tho and I respect that.
