I never seen a guy headline a HBO card with only his second professional fight. Hell, I never seen a fighter being showcased with that amount of hype on only his first. This is all new to me, and to me, it would seem since HBO is expanding internationally, that they're putting a lot of bread in the future of the "Shiming dynasty" basket. Economically it seems smart, given the large Chinese population here in the states and around the world, but in the fight game, is it wise being that it's the Flyweight division, the most unpopular division in the sport? Or, unless his opponents share the same win/loss ratio as did Guierllemo Rigondeux's opponents did, how can we take the 31 year olds professional accomplishments seriously, given the unknown competition he faces thus far?

If he fights anyone worth talking about in outside of China, he's probably going to get washed up. I'm not impressed by this cat at all and this is HBO's sad attempt to expand internationally. Cmon, you think taxes are the only reason Manny is fighting in Macau? This is HBO's equivalent of the NFL and the NBA having regular season games in London. And you know what....all of it sucks! lol

Post of the month Hahaha
