This is a prime example of how promoters maneuver their fighters like pawns on a chess board. Maidana and Matthysse are being coerced to fight one another to protect Malignaggi and Garcia. Chaves will just go unnoticed even-though he's the mandatory.
I feel Schaefer wants the title to go to the more marketable Berto or Mosley if Paulie loses, not Maidana.
Matthysse and Maidana are fighting at two different weights with no titles and don't appear to want to fight each other.
Malignaggi and Maidana want to fight each other for the title - and Schaefer won't let it happen.
