He did not turn down a 4 fight $30 million contract. First off, no 20 something year old would turn down that kind of money, second HBO would never offer that type of money to Floyd. He had never even headlined a ppv at that point. The deal was around $13 million for 6 fights. That's still a lot of money, but a far cry from $30 million over 4 fights.
