TR has been planning to stage fights in Macau, if they can get a site fee and hbo money and it's also tax free...Donaire maybe fighting there with or without Mares. TR already is promoting a fight there in April with Viloria and Zou Shiming.
that's cool, as long as that in house fight is Rigo which we all know it won't be. then what will ur excuse be?

I thought the 3 mil offer was the purse to be divided, not just donaire's purse

No the 3 million was Donaire's purse + the fee for Top Rank for his services, to be divided as Donaire, Dunkin, and Arum decide.

Well looking at that figure and arum, the offer doesn't say who will promote the fight, which also means ticket sales and ppv buys. That offer is not really all that high, donaire probably gets around 1 mil plus, its how it is when there are 2 promoters. They only talk about 3 mil this and 1 mil that while not talking about the other important details that would generate the most money.

Donaire's highest purse to date is 1.1. Golden Boy would promote; the 3 million is precisely for Top Rank not to promote, just like TR's offer of 1 was similarly Mares purse + the cost for GB to step aside.

1 million to be split between everybody. When Schaefer offered 3 million to Donaire, he said that Doanire would be getting at least 1.5 million himself depending on his deal with Arum. The other part of the money is to tell Arum to back off

then this is simply a battle between two promoters, the most important deciding factor is whoever promotes that fight, because he would be the winner in the end.

This is always split between the fighter, promoter, manager, trainer and then expenses come out. You make it sound like this is something new?

The counter proposal? For a time period when Donaire said he isn't fighting? Right.... knew there would be a catch.

A lot of us has questioned the legitimacy of the offer. Even Cameron Dunking is suspicious:

"I'll know more when I see an offer from Top Rank and get their take on it," Dunkin said. "Is (the offer) true and straight forward? We'll find out."

Do you brush your teeth with Arum's jizz?

Another thing being left out here. Arum as negotiating with Schaefer through Mares' promoter. Schaefer has made a 'take it or leave it, no negotiating' offer. In other words, SCHAEFER ENDED NEGOTIATIONS. No other way to see that. Gotta ask yourself that question.
