It was not received well. He'd need a blessed load more incentive to fight another in 2013 with guys like Pulev and Fury who are worth more, actually ranked and actually more accomplished waiting for their shots.
Mansour's shot would be 2014 if it ever happened. To get there he's gotta beat some quality fighters in 2013.
