Hmm....maybe GBP allowed TR to buy up Lara/Vanes in the hope that if Lara pulls it off, it would automatically be an in-house fight. Oscar has not name-dropped any TR fighters, so Lara could still be a potential possibility, he just has to win to get his foot in the door. And remember that Lara has Haymon now too.
It's hard to predict because you have to take into account the politics. They already set a precedent with Josesito, so they could just as easily offer a fight to Maidana, and he would be crazy enough to take it. Oh lawd, the uncertainty of this sport.
