... and yes, at that time the fight against Macklin ( who beat Sturm but he got robbed and was in top 5 MWs according to RM ) was a more viable and profitable option than a fight with 3G who was unknown at that time and he didn't have market exposure !
- if somehow HBO would make to happen a fight between Jr / Geale / Macklin vs 3G and the winner of this fight would have to meet Martinez ( and lets say the winner would be 3G ) then yes , a Martinez vs 3G fight would make any sense , especially a financial sense !
you've misread my post. if martinez took on GGG NOW, he would make more money than he did when he took on barker and macklin. he wouldn't make less that's for sure.
