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.
When a fighter lacks marketing power, part of that can be blamed on the promoter. Maidana has an fan-friendly style and has fought multiple times on premium TV, so he isn't a complete unknown like Chaves. Berto was getting great pay-days from HBO, but I doubt he was doing the #'s to justify those pay-days. Mosley is coming back for a pay-day, and since Paulie is the easiest titlist to beat, he went for that. Mosley/Berto makes more sense than Malignaggi vs. either guy.
