It annoys me that people try linking Floyd or Manny to every single boxing event that has little/nothing to do with them. That being said.
Pascal doesn't want to do a Mayweather and be branded as a phussy. He didn't let the OSDT be an obstacle for the fight NOT to be made.
Pascal had already put pen to paper so he was in no position to bargain. It the equivalent of me selling my house to someone then trying to get them to agree to restrictive covenants after the transfer has been made.
