So if you want to be the champ, you have to beat the Klits three consecutive times and fight by their rules, their location and their visionnof how the money is split.
I would say that every single fighter that Wlad fought in the last 3 years received a career high pay day. By very definition a career high pay date can not be a slave contract.
Also if a challenger wants to put himself in a strong position to get a better contract, why don't they actually fight other contenders and build up a name for himself so they are a bigger name? No one apart from Pulev is doing it. If you fight overmatched opponents and then whinge about getting a shit contract for a title shot - you only have yourself to blame.
The fact is - pretty much any heavyweight challenger at the moment can be dismissed as a waste of time fight for Wlad - I think Pulev will be an exception soon.
