I hear you, but that's not really how the sport works.
You don't get a guy a lot of fans haven't heard of who might beat you and fly him in for St.Paddy's weekend.
You get an Irishman you are pretty sure you can beat but who won't fall over at the first sign of trouble.
If Pirog want's to force a champion's hand he needs to get to the states and start beating up his own Macklins, make a fight with him impossible to avoid.
We had the same thing with Calzaghe not a few years ago...
