Greatness is earned, not manufactured.
Golden Boy are shite promoters who are ****ing Jonty's career up big time and he needs to leave them ASAP if they don't make big strides in furthering his career by the end of this year. This might sound like a truism but they simply don't have his best intentions at heart.
Well said, both points.
As I've said before, I think GBP has to be willing to throw some money into this, to actually LOSE money on a few fights in order to get Wilder the opposition he needs. Right now, the only way to get a decent fighters to face him is to give those fighters a huge payday, guaranteed. (think of it as a retirement bonus.)
Evidently, they aren't willing to do this.
