While this public bickering is just making things worse, it is offering the fans some clarity (or confirmation as to what we already thought).
Schaefer basically exposed Arum's lie that the fight can't be made cos Mares is tied up with Showtime.
The fight can't be made cos Arum won't promote with GBP. He vowed not to after Oscar insinuated Pac was on roids, and he hasn't since then. That was 3 years ago.
F-ck all this nonsense about being tied into contracts or business models that Arum/DeBouef keep talking about, they just refuse to make fights with GBP.
The problem is, the balance of power from 140-147 has shifted to GBP. How long are Bradley and Rios going to be happy missing out on all these great fights cos of one old man's vendetta?
