That is why I have called (Leonard) Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, and I tell him not to play with me. I’ve been here much longer than a nanosecond. I’ve been waiting for the phone call. I do not participate in those games. Please give me the contract. Show me the date, show me the money I’m about to put in the bank and you will see my name signed on the line of the contract ”.
