I'm aware of that. So why isn't he trying to make more of a name for himself? Why the same ****ty 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?
