You need to read up on this because you have it completely **** about face.
Jeffries signed up for a lucrative theatrical tour,and 37 years old Fitz was left out in the cold.

I wont say that it did not surprise me, but it seems inescapable that Fitzsimmons was instrumental in the fight being delayed.
