"That's not in the cards," Arum said. "He wants $20 million for the De La Hoya fight? It's not there. Sometimes, my man, you gotta know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. We'll talk about things down the road."

Can you read kid?? Mayweather had no problem with the bum Marg, but Arum wanted to lock him into a long contract with low guarantees and even told him that 20million for DLH was ridiculous. We all know how that turned out. He made 32 mill guranteed for Cotto. Do you see know how wrong you are and how Arum and his shady business practices screw up fights??
You have it there in black and white but someone will come with more bullshit .
