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.
1. They never got that far, because it was instantly dismissed.
2. Why else would they have wanted the double header?
It's safe to assume that they'd have discussed details of the fight, before they went through with the double header.
If DM wanted Roy, and the double header would have promoted the fight, then why would Kohl have turned it down? He was a successful businessman. There was only one reason for turning it down, and it's obvious what that reason was.
