The chances are that, for all of Carmen's protestations about Chicago, he will fight Saxton there again. Boston is another possibility, since Massachusetts also holds that a fighter can sign if his manager is persona non grata. And, after all, who cares what happens to the purse so long as the appearances of decency are preserved? But the Chicago gate was $104,280, far above expectations, and there was a $60,000 fee from television. Result: $42,677 to each fighter. It was balm to Basilio and next day he was saying he would fight Saxton again "anywhere." Even in Chicago.
