In 1998 a fight with Quartey WAS made but Whitaker tested positive for drugs and went to rehab. Surely you're not suggesting he used rehab as a way to duck Quartey? Especially since a win over Ike would have catapulted him to a rematch with Oscar.
He was lined up to fight Tito when Tito was trying to leave DKP. Tito lost in court, had to stay with Don and it fell apart. Go back and watch their twinbill featuring Tito-Barnes; it was happening. DK never let one of his guys fight Pea again until Pea got older after he clowned Chavez.
