Blame his manager. During his prime, he was a P4p talent. At thi point, the top guys would beat him, plus he's a draw in a country that doesn't know the difference between Gamboa and Mtagwa, so I don't expect him to fight anyone decent anytime soon.

His name is Chris John, one of the most generic names you can come up with. It is surprising he has no marketability?

He's a good fighter though. He does have a win over JMM...and even if you think he lost that fight, he showed his class. It's a shame he's not being matched up better.

He got a home town decision vs Marquez.
I found my scorecard for the fight :

JMM-CJ
9-10 (could go either way)
10-9
9-10
9-10
10-9
9-10
9-10
10-9
10-9 (could go either way)
9-9
9-9
9-10

112-114

I scored it for John, but it was a really close fight. I think that JMM shouldn't have been deducted the second point in the 11th round. John did some good counterpunching in this fight, but Marquez was really the better fighter in the second half of the fight, if you forget the points deducted. In the first half of the fight, there are a few moments where Marquez looks like he did against Mayweather : reaching with his shots and missing wildly.

Hes a good fighter. Not as good as his record, but still a legit top fighter. Hes somewhere between Juanma and Gamboa as far as how good he is imo.

He is fighting a Bum because he has been brought into AUS to pump up a Danny Green show, risk must equal the reward, John gets paid 500k min to fight the top brass in his own country so they give him a bum to fight in AUS and pump up a card and pay him a fraction of the price as there is no risk for John what so ever, easy pay day and publicity in AUS. they are prob not even paying John and mearly giving him the PPV rights for his own country.

The show is on a Danny Green card, the same guy who ducked Tarver for a rematch and claimed he wanted to fight in USA because there was to much pressure doing his own promo against Tarver in AUS so instead he gets out the POLE who just tried to commit suicide and fights him in AUS on his own promo, pumping it up with John and TOmilson claiming 3 world title fights, best card in AUS and no ones EVER going to top it.

biggest wanker in AUS boxing and this matchup is a result of Danny Green Machine Promotions, owned and run by None other than Danny Booshay Green himself.

Injuries, sickness, broken promises..fights falling over at the last minute..a poor decision in his American debut.

Plus he is in a difficult position of being a legit title holder who can earn good money at home but can't see that matched abroad...having to really take a risk for less reward because of his lack of profile.

It's gotten to the point now where it's just taking the piss however...They might always love him in Indonesia but his reputation overseas is deteriorating rapidly.
Thing his last defense was a really good fight against a decent opponent...but his management seem unwilling or unable to capitlise on that.
He might not even get to the point Navarez is at, where at least Omar is having a last throw of the dice because he knows his days are numbered. John is just going to see his prime wasted.
Hey Rock doesnt John live in Perth in Australia. Im pretty sure he is one of those fighters thats a bit like a Klitschko or a Ottke makes more money at home like you said and his happy living in Perth shit i would be too.
