When they said ok, but lets trade him for Rios for one fight, he then killed the offer and sent an insult with it.
Again, nowhere does Arum say they were offering him bad numbers.
Given his statements, he declined on the principle, before any number negotiations took place.
Not sure what's hard to understand about this.. Trying to say it's about numbers is grasping at straws that don't even exist, as nothing at all was said by anybody about any numbers.
