It’s simply a part of what he does, pay attention, like I at all times say. I owe guys three fights a yr. Proper. So if I don’t get them the fights, I’ve to pay them. I owe you three fights a yr by contract. If I don’t get you three fights a yr then I’ve to pay you to not struggle. If I’m not dwelling as much as my finish of the duty, then clearly I owe him some cash. And clearly, that’s not the case.”
