Good opponents are lining up and drooling at the prospect of taking their "0's".
Really? Please name them.

So they tend to go slow so they could pick their shots, which frustrates fan's but fan's have to realize both managers and promoters are protecting their investments.
Any ESB member could have written that, and it makes no sense. First, why would any management company invest even one dollar in a fighter they don't have confidence in?

Re Wilder: GBP is LOSING money on Wilder. I was hoping you might have some insight as to why they have done almost nothing for him, but "protecting him" is clearly not the answer.

Re Boytsov: You DO realize that Universum went bankrupt, yes? And evidently, the guy who now owns Boytsov's contract won't let him fight unless it's in a bout that he controls, which means Boytsov is in limbo. It has nothing to do with the new boss'es confidence, and everything to do with greed.

- but thanks for playing, Jane Merrill has some lovely parting gifts for you on your way out.
