I'd hope the cold war ends and these super fights can be made
TR needs GBP a lot more than GBP needs them.
Super Fights? Let's name some of the better TR fighters:
Manny- ok he is one of the few fighters who has "super fight" potential with GBP. His contract is up in 2014 He will rcv a 1 million dollar bonus if he fights twice in 2014. Who knows what 2015 holds for him.
Chavez? According to fight hype his contact Is almost over? But even if it wasn't no "super fight" to be made with GBP. Who would be his Gbp option? Kid chocolate? Not a super fight
Rigondeaux- no super fight at super bantamweight with a GBP fighter, But if he moves to 122 - a Leo Santa Cruz fight. Good fight but not "super"
Bradley- he would have a lot of options with GBP fighters but he's not a draw and no "super fight" but good fights for fight fans
Also TR has nonito and Mikey Garcia. Some great matchups at featherweight. - Chris John, Gary Russell,mares and potential Santa Cruz all great fights. But super? Not yet.
The Cold War will end with TR calling Soon. Bob just turned 82, I'm sure his son in law knows he needs gbp for the future.
