yeah...i saw that on eurosport.

roman's handlers must know he hasn't got much potential as he still hasn't stepped up. maybe they want to get him up to 40-0 or something so that some paper HW champ tries to use him as a respectable challenger and they get one decent payday out of his career.

Roman is a lazy waster.The guy has some talent but his been hyped way too much by his handlers, protected way too much by his handlers and isnt anywhere near world class.His terrifyingly boring to watch.Thinks his really cute on offense (even though he does have fairly fast hands and a decent dig) but is just too cautious to even want to get involved in a fight.Im sure he only boxes because it something to do.

If he were to get to 25-0 or 30-0 he'd probably get a title shot and a million dollars...

He can go 100-0.Greenberg is a relative unknown.Isnt making any noise on a global scene.And certainly isnt worthy of commanding a million for a fight.

Anyone remember Hyland calling Mathew Ellis 'The First Billion dollar Athlete'...

His handlers have been promising to move him up in standard for several years now. And it still hasn't happened. There was a mooted match with Mercer(I think) but that fell through. They clearly aren't very confident in him as they continue to match him against weak oppo. He has good skills and apparently looks 'mustard' in the gym, but then again, so does Danny Williams!!

Amir Khan isn't hype - ROMAN GREENBERG IS HYPE!!!

The kid has fought NO ONE and not looked that good fighting NO ONE and yet he is supposed to be a SOMEONE.

He'll it's been about 4 years since he was being stupidly hyped on BBC and he still ain't going nowhere.

I'm not hating, I'm just stating!
