Caribe is not a part of the negotiations and cannot speak for Rigo's availability or lack of availability - Caribe ONLY has a contract for revenue sharing, that is all. Top Rank is the dictator for both Donaire and Rigo. THINK ABOUT IT!!! If Caribe had any real information, he would not be stuck in Tweets talking Heresay, he would be right there with members of Top Rank bringing out REAL information!! All he is is a guy who gets revenue IF those two fight......he cannot promote a fight that does not exist yet. Top Rank makes money if Donaire fights Rigo, Mares, or someone else, Caribe does not.
Caribe only makes money on Rigo so Caribe is circling around in his own Swill like he is in a washing machine and detached from the negotiations. He cannot speak on Arum's behalf and say that Rigo is or is not available because ARUM controls who Rigo fights, when and where, not Caribe. If Arum signals that the fight is on, Caribe can step into action and co-promote. Till then, he is like a little bird waiting for mommy bird to feed him a worm.
