    Whilst they ignore Light Heavyweight with Beterbiev, Bivol, Joe Smith Jr, Kovalev etc. They ignored cruiserweight when it was the most stacked division I've seen a few years ago.

    Haney and Garcia are good but they aren't that good to be getting this hype like they are the new fab four! Gervonta Davis isnt even a lightweight hes super featherweight.

    Light Middleweight (154lbs) could be getting the same hype as it has very talented young undefeated fighters coming up at the same time...

    Tim Tszyu ( Australia) age 26, 17-0 (13)
    Serhii Bohachuk (Ukraine), age 25, 18-0 (18)
    Israil Madrimov (Uzbekistan), age 25, 6-0 (5)
    Sadriddin Akhmedov (Kazakhstan) age 22, 11-0 (10)
    Magomed Kurbanov (Russia), age 25, 21-0 (13)
    Artem Oganesyan (Russia) age 21, 12-0 (10)

    But of course these fighters don't fit their criteria/agenda!

    I noticed it's a similar pattern to heavyweight. Once Klitschko was vanquished all of sudden the division was "hot" and Wilder's paper belt became legitimate.

    Loma losing has opened up the division to a point but these under 25 guys haven't called out Loma and want nothing to do with him. Only Lopez had the balls to call him out as he could have pulled a Wilder and waited for signs of aging and then called out Loma.

    PS on a side note Garcia and Golden Shower productions have settled their financial differences. I wonder if Oscar is still blocked by Garcia on Grinder in the transexual dating section?

    Yes after Klitschko retired and Fury went off on a bender. They were so quick to hype up Joshua and Wilder.

    Look at these two elite russian lightweights facing each other a year ago in the natonal championships - lya Shakirov is aged 19 here, and and lya Popov was 20. Both have big futures.



    If these two were signed by US promoters and pushed their ceiling would be higher than the hypejobs they are pushing. But of course they won't cause it doesn't fit their agenda.

    white countries like Russia, the talent is there and is always there... it's stacked with talent. If there was an even playing field with who gets signed by promoters, fighters like Haney wouldn't even be relevant. Russians would be beating their ass in every division.
