ALthough this has some factual basis, they are much more willing to travel than the other asian boxing powerhouses in Japan and Korea. I mean you all know of Wonjongkam's suspect travel record but you should look at how often Japanese and Korean fighters fight overseas.
All three have good boxing traditions but their lack of willingness to travel to gain exposure has really hurt them.
The willingnesss to travel is not always the best.
