What kills me about boxing nowadays is, great fighters get labeled as "scared" when they don't go up and fight these guys but nobody asks who the fuck they're fighting lol I've heard on numerous occasions that Floyd, Andre, Peter, Sergio and even Chad Dawson were "afraid to fight GGG." If ANY of those fighters fought a guy named Osumanu Adama (I had to copy and paste it)
, said fighter would be further proof they were "ducking"
So how exactly does fuel continually get added to this hype train (as CShel said) when the guys you're fighting would be other guys "easy way out"?
The media picks their heroes. GGG is the fan favorite, the great white hope (see the nut hugging of Johnnie Manziel). GGG is everything they want in a boxer. he looks the part. He can go on and fight bums for the next three years and no one will say a word. Mayweather ducked Margarito, P Williams (there is an argument with that) a prime Cotto, and of course Manny Pac. But, on the same coin, Manny Pac never avoided fighting stiff competition, see Brandon Rios! he is a hard puncher.
GGG reminds me of Mattyhsse, a knock out master against those who he should knock out (wasn't expecting him to beat Lamont Peterson) the people he fights, the same with GGG. HBO loves him and that will be all he needs. Look what the HBO hype did for Donaire.
