Sucks. Don King apparently is getting in the way.
Diaz signed with King-you get what you deserve-and part of that was that King had to give permission for Diaz to fight if another promoter made the purse bid for one of his fights. Which Oscar did, making a real high offer apparently cause he wants Diaz when his contract with King ends sometime early next year I think.
King apparently is not budging, won't give Diaz permission.
HBO's already scrapped the Feb 9 date, apparently there's a chance it could still happen March 8 if they somehow worked out an agreement in the next week but this doesn't seem likely.
Its an article on another site. can't put a link.
