Ocsar buying the magazine out puts the magazine's good will and credibility at risk.
Will Oscar use Ring Magazine for slanted press for his fighters? Will he use the magazine to get even with rival promoters? I think this is a real concern. While Ocsar won’t blatantly abuse this power, he is a sure bet to bend it to his favor on the less obvious levels.
I agree. While the editors/writers remain the same, their articles will without a doubt be influenced in one way or another by DLH, since writing anything negative about GBP might cost them their jobs. But as with all speculation, we shall see. From my end, though, not a good move for Ring who was an independent "sanctioning body" with their rankings.
