Default Re: Examples of boxers who disgraced they're fans and looked for a way out during fig

"We have to get Joe to America and the right fight is Bernard Hopkins," said Showtime boxing chief Jay Larkin.

"Hopkins turned down a lot of money from us to fight Calzaghe last year, but after what Joe did to Mitchell we can up the ante and offer more."

The TV boss was impressed by the way Calzaghe climbed off the floor after being dropped for the first time in his life, saying he showed the instincts of a true champion.

Larkin is determined to push for the Hopkins fight, but acknowledges that the man known as 'The Executioner,' is not the easiest fighter to negotiate with.
