You realise they were countering an already unfair offer, right? With Arum basically saying give me Mares if you want to make Mares/Donire
So given the context they were asking for Rios, I dont see the problem. That it was a deal killer is on Top Rank, not GBP.
Oscar said fine, and called Arum out on his shit. Had Arum compromised and met GBP halfway after hes the one that started with the unrealistic demands, we would have had two awesome fights to look forward to.
Fact remains, the reason why these two great fights arent happening is at Arums feet.
Nothing posted in this thread changes that. Arum killed these fights from happening before they ever got to the negotiating table, period.
