He could have got Selby cheaper and still paid Kambosos the lower amount per the original agreement. Man's a fucking cretin.DiBella said he was surprised that Hearn bid an amount that requires him to pay their side more than the original deal.
“Explain the logic other than Eddie being an ass… He had us for a $150,000 package all in. Then he asks for a big cut. I said f— that, I’ll take it to purse bid and do the fight in Australia.
