If HBO can "appreciate" Vasyl's boxing acumen then they better have the same admiration for Ward. I swear, if you aren't a knockout artist or a come forward fighter, HBO will shit on you. They didn't even acknowledge Jacobs success against their boxing god GGG. It is actually making hate HBO Boxing even more. Now HBO is butt hurt because Kov didn't look like a killer against Ward, as if Ward were all hype and a slouch. Go figure, I hope Ward has a superior performance just to make JIM and the fraud Kellerman STFU!
That's what I was thinking. I mean, Ward won the freakin' Super 6 for crying out loud. Yeah, aside from the Kovalev fight, he hasn't had any notable fights after the Dawson fight in 2012.
Lomanchenko has a pretty good resume, but the crap that I've been reading over the past couple of days, saying that he's the best boxer in the world, is absurd.
GRJ, Salido (whom he lost to), Martinez, Walters, and Sosa....I can't even say those guys will make you the best fighter in the world....but it's a damn good start.
I just don't get the whole P4P talk, I really don't. For starters, it's way too subjective and it's hardly broken down by weight classes (which it should). Some people (media, commentators, etc) get a little bit ahead of themselves and star saying stupid shit like, "He (insert fighter's name) is the best P4P fight in the world" and it ruffles feathers.
Again, if the whole P4P or ATG talks remained in a particular weight class, it would be more tolerable to discuss, but what can we do?
