Default Re: Arum turns down Schaefer's Offer for Donaire-Mares and Matthysse-Rios

Again, tit for tat for when Mayweather went behind his back and tried to negotiate with Pac on EXACTLY those terms. Floyd is with GBP. Don't try and make out Floyd is an independent. This would have been a GBP fight because you need a licensed promoter.

See above. Floyd started this one on GBP's behalf. Arum simply turned it around on them and you blame Arum. OK. Sure, why not.

Lets put this all together now.
Floyd, on behalf of GBP, makes offer to Pac. One time payment, no Arum, no co-promotion.
Arum turns around and does EXACTLY the same thing to GBP. Same terms.
GBP makes a demand on Rios they know ahead of time won't happen.

If you don't see it now, you never will because you don't want to. Look at the whole picture.
