    Why not reschedule this fight when he isn’t rushing to do everything last minute and it gives both men more time to prepare

    Well you see fighters need to earn a living and don't really make enough as it is.

    Probably bored of the hardcore lockdown NZ has and wants to fight.

    Likely to do with how hard it is to get out of his country to fight would be my hunch. He's got a family to feed and need to take his opportunities to fight. Not ideal if it's the case, but it's the hand he's been dealt having to deal with the restrictions in new zealand.

    His last fight was 200k to show and 100k to win. Potentially making 300k sounds good to me.

    He’s broke. And at least now he has an excuse.

    He locked down this specific date weeks ago, including his return flight back home. It's not that easy. Changing the schedule even a week ahead would mean not going home for one year. He explains it in a recent Ariel Helwani interview.

    He probably needs the money; he's only had one fight in 2021.

    It could be bullshit but after looking at a couple sites on Google that's what they tell me. Granted I didn't spend a ton of time looking.
