What better way to grab the public's interest by getting the two largest promotion companies to do a boxing tournament or a Davis Cup type of matches.

In Davis Cup countries from around the world pick three of their best tennis players and have them compete against other countries. What if Golden boy and Top Rank put their top fighters in each weight class against each other? They could co promote and Showtime and HBO have to compete for the purse...

You could have Gary Russel Jr. vs. Mikey Garcia Mares vs. Donaire, Swift vs. Crawford, Rios vs. Judah (Al Haymon fighter) Thurman vs. Bradley or Marquez and Sergio vs. Canelo, Mayweather vs. Whoever... The possibilities would be endless and the money would be out of this world. You can have a PPV with a stacked undercard and the main event would the cherry on top. What do yawl think? It would never happen but come on a Golden Boy vs. Top Rank tournament would be amazing!

This may be a bit off point, but let's face it, Arum has a lucky horseshoe up his ass.

He's successfully created some lucrative and fan-friendly rematches, which can lead to other fights. He now has Manny, JMM, Alvarado, Rios, Bradley, and Provodnikov, in the holster. He'll ultimately make a killing off of these fights alone, regardless of how he mixes them.

GBP has some young stars on their roster, but a number of things can happen:

1. We can get those highly anticipated matchups, and they'll end in a sour fashion
2. Someone can test positive for PEDs and ruin everything (Let's face it, most of those of those dudes who came up hot from last year to present, were or are now GBP fighters).
3. They can continue to build their "stars" up by putting them in showcase bouts, only for them to stink it up and get upset. It happens.
4. We can have another series of postponed/cancelled GBP fights, which will turn viewer's attention to these TR cards until the GB fights actually happen.

With all of these factors in mind, when was the last Top Rank disaster? Manny getting knocked out? Cool, but what good has happened since then? This past month of action-packed fights, have pretty much patched up that big boo-boo. Let's not forget, Manny is STILL a draw, regardless.

TR deals with issues waaaay better than GBP. What's happened to GB as of late?

1. They just signed a PED user (Berto), who got busted up by a LW.
2. They signed another guy accused of PEDs (Peterson), who could very well lose to Matthysse, though I give Peterson a strong chance to win.
3. Alexander/Brook has been postponed twice already
4. Khan got knocked by Garcia last July
5. Morales got popped for PEDs
6. Seth Mitchell got whacked by Banks, and the rematch got cancelled
7. Guerrero just got busted with a firearm in the worst state to ever get busted
8. Garcia/Judah got postponed
9. Victor Ortiz is still on the shelf after getting upset by Lopez
10. They put Lopez in a shitty fight against Canelo, smh
11. Trout upset Miguel Cotto, whom was ultimately going to be Golden Boy's 2nd lucrative free agent (like Floyd is), but he got upset and now has to play the waiting game.
12. HBO no longer wants to do business with them
13. They have a loose, but money generating screw in Broner, whose contract is up next month. Even he resigns, who needs that type of liability on their hands?

I know that some of these situations can be made into a good situation, but the damage control that they've had to do over the past year, has been crazy. They've given us some great fights though (after the wound was patched up), but TR's mess usually gets swept under the rug, and they're able to bounce back.
