[QUOTE=Puppet Master;10081389]Coldwell will back out of the deal. I am sure, then Booth gets it for £325K. My name is Charles Sexton aka Asterix aka Asstricks. Aka THE LAW Aka Gizmo![/QUOTE] Are you allowed to get out of the bid?

That is not purses. The bids are to host the fight as the main promoter guys. Since Frank and Haye share each other, one will be the main promoter who has the venue etc...
