I'm aware of that. So why isn't he trying to make more of a name for himself? Why the same shitty level of competition time after time for, presumably, very little money? He wouldn't even have to fight anyone particularly dangerous to get the HBO hype train in gear. Mitchell had a similar lack of experience and was being touted for a title shot after beating Ibragimov and Witherspoon. The US is crying out for a heavyweight prospect. The time is ripe. So why the f*ck isn't he stepping up to the plate?
