I understand the politics of boxing and promotion and all the other bullshit that goes with the sport, however, it seems unjust that Martinez made only $ 1.4 million (before Pay-Per-View Sales %) to Chavez's guaranteed $ 3 million.
I guess you chalk it up to Arum > DiBella. It was Mexican Indepencence Day weekend and Bob knew going in that 80% of the gate was going to be Mexican. Not to mention, their fan base in Vegas. But is Jr. really that much more marketable than Sergio? I respect Martinez even more now, knowing that he took the fight just to shut Chavez up.
IMO, Bob will be a stumbling block if there is to be a rematch (He's too greedy)....no way Martinez settles for less (nor should he) the next go around.
