No he wasn't offered the fight, HBO just wanted to stage the double header because they liked DM's shorts!
Also Brad Jacobs met HBO for lunch and tried to get Kohll on the phone to ask him his thoughts on Germany's chances of winning the World Cup the following year.
It was just that you said DM was offered a Jones fight. Now that we have established that he didn't let's move on.
Two important questions are raised by this:
1: How much was DM offered for this undercard slot?
2: Was there a guaranteed shot at Jones after this fight? Knowing that Jones was near impossible to negotiate, that would be a key-point if I was manager.
