Mosley was to make $1 million, and was in Sydney at the time he pulled out after the deadline had passed for him receive the remaining amount due. According to reports, Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions, stated Mosley had no other option after the remaining $700,000 was not paid as required under the terms of the contract. Mosley, accompanied by his sparring partner, Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora then boarded a plane heading back to Los Angeles.
According to the Herald Sun Newspaper, fifteen-hundred tickets had been sold by Sunday, after promoters budgeted for nine-thousand, and eighty-thousand in pay-per-view sales.
For Mosley, he will fight another day, he has had a great career and is one of the greatest fighters of our time, but he is without a doubt passed his prime. One can't blame him for not fighting Mundine, through no fault of either fighter, boxing fans are the one's who have lost.
