so I just read an article referencing K2 guy Oleg where he states "Schaefer and Quillin accepted the offer they produced to face GGG"... next day Schaefer told K2 he wanted to arrange a bidding war between HBO-SHO for the right to broadcast

Oleg then says "NO" and that wasn't acceptable because HBO has been always loyal to them

these handlers are the reason fights don't get made, what the hell is wrong with GGG and Kovalev making as much money as they possible can for whoever they fight?

also, HBO sure was loyal to them in Monte Carlo... straight dumbasses at K2 and Main Events

on who's behalf?... GGG's HBO contract isn't greater or more important than Quillin's SHO and if Schaefer was able to get K2 more money what's wrong?

nah, 2 even 3 (ESPN) is ok... the handlers just need to go fight by fight or 2 fight deals at a time at the most

If you eliminate the exclusive contracts of fighters (i.e. GGG, Kovalev, etc) and of the promoters (HBO-TR, SHO-GB) that alone would shakeup the industry for the better. A fight by fight basis will create an open market and that would be a good thing for boxing

I don't think its a network issue. I think its a promoter issue. Since Boxer A gets locked into a 5 fight deal, he's stuck if another fighter gets the hot hand under another promoter and the two promoters refuse to do business together. Thats not in the fighter's, the fans or the sports best interests. Promoters have to go, period.

Fighters should have rivalries, not promoters or networks.
