But DLH was the cash cow for all of his fights, so fighters had no choice but to bend down to him. Remember this guy came in with a decorated Olympic background, heartbreaking story of his mother, and was already popular with the women. So he was always like the A-Side of his fights.
Mosley refused $12 million for the rematch saying that since he had beaten Oscar (and he beat him clearly) he deserved a 50-50 split, or at least a lot more thn $12 mill. Mosley, still unbeaten and having won over Oscar, had a huge reputation.

Why do i think it was the second fight? My recollection is that they were going to have the return shortly after the first fight, and it fell through because Mosley refused the offer. And this was why the return didn't take place for 3 years instead of within the year. I could be wrong.

When Oscar was asked, on camera, ( of which I have the video) if he would fight Trinidad in a return, he refused it. Money was not mentioned. Of course it may have been, during the real negotiarions. Not too long after this Papa Trinidad announced to Don King that their future price for any fight was $10 mill minimum.
