Default Re: K2 and the contracts offered to various fighters......

This is just ridiculous. Povetkin was going to get 4 mill the first time they negotiated. He ran from it. The second time it was 2.5, he still ran from it. Valuev was going to get 2.5, he declined. Adamek got more than 3 mill, so you can remove him from the list. Mormeck is fighting Wlad, remove him from the list. Fury said himself that he wasnt ready.

I think that the slave contract is a new thing to say in HW just to duck the Klitschkos.

Oh wait, Fury is just too lazy and too damn crappy a boxer to even become mandatory anywhere.

Know what. I just called the K brothers. Asked them what they'd offer me for a world title shot. They said $50,000. I said "What are you kidding me??? I decline!"

What a terrible low-ball offer. I think fighting for the world title is worth a little more! Why do the K brothers low-ball me like that?!?!?!?
If somebody is so damn poor, and unworthy of a title shot -

Why are they getting title shots in the first place?

Either K2 are fighting bums, or they are paying below the going rate.

You can't have it both ways, so which is it to be?

As champion Byrd is entitled to 67% of the total purse. So if the pot was 5.5 million Wlad had no option but to pay Byrd 4 million.

These guys aren't asking for 50/50 though are they?

It's really simple, a fighter isn't going to sign a slave contract for little money putting their health on the line.
With Povetkin there's a case that he pulled out because they thought he wasn't ready, or Atlas wasn't happy with Povetkins cut from Sauerland, what about the rest?

It'll take Fury 1-2 years to position himself.

And yet worthy of K2 approaching him for a title shot.

Atleast he is a boxing fan here to give his "mostly reasonable" opinions and talk about boxing. You're just here to start stupid, nonsensical threads to try to get a reaction

Povetkin wasn't about the money, mute point.

No Adamek won't be removed the quote is from Oct 2010, long before they finally fought, same with Mormeck.

Fury did say he wasn't ready, still doesn't discount the terms offered when approached does it?

Yeah you're right, over a dozen fighters are bitching over nothing and just want to avoid K2.

I am white you moron.

If you have nothing of substance to contribute then you're a waste of time.
How about putting your brain into gear and debating the points, or is that beyond you?
