I'd like to see some concrete, big money offers for Dempsey to fight Greb. So far , I never have.
You never will if you keep your eyes closed. This is the same as people saying there were no concrete offers for Dempsey to fight Wills. There were dozens of offers to fight both men. Dempsey ignoring them does not mean they were not serious offers. It means Dempsey was serious about avoiding them.
