Even if you were to beat Wlad, you must rematch him and and his brother and even though you're the champ, you submit yourself to K2 Promotions in all three fights - you fight under their conditions and you earn the smaller portion of the purse. That's unprecedented. Also, in case of not attending a press conference, you have to pay a 100.000 fee which is significantly more than any other promoter ever asked for.
They have all the negotiation power. Why should they give power away to opponents who can't draw flies to ****? In your first job, did you demand the same salary as the CEO? You had no negotiation power, just like most of his opponents don't. Wlad brings in the $$$, not them.
