GGG should be marketed as an HBO star with a potential to shine in the Game of Thrones:

I wonder if Golovkin is aware of the fact that he's standing next to an ex-porn star there? I'm referring to the second pic of course.

Type O Negative the late singer Peter Steele had Russian parents does he count, to the Rammstein critics.

A good idea by the OP and A-mericans would lap it up. I mean, they love up the pantomime that is WWE and some people think it's real!

Kovalev on the other hand...
Yeah Kovalev could easily fit into that role as he is a KILLER
HBO could make millions, at least prior to the BHOP fight, if they start now

Probably would be seen in bad taste to call Kovalev a killing machine being he has a ring fatality....I'm pretty sure theyt are marketing themselves with their sensational KO.

HBO should play that up now, many Americans still feel that way deep down, a fear and a respect at the same time. GGG and Kovalev are being marketed as sweet nice guys which they are unfortunately, even though their actions in the ring speaks volumes in them getting over with the fans, if they were sold as big scary Red Monsters I think that would appeal to many casual fans even more than the way they are being sold now.
Big scary intros would go a long way as well.
Imagine how badass it would be seeing Kovalev come out cloaked in red and yellow light to a song like this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Hang in there for the chorus and then the bridge at 3:45.

Or GGG coming out to this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
I think it would be quite effective.
Don't take this thread too seriously, have a little bit of a sense of humor.

Well I'll be damned as always you saw it coming long before everyone else. Good ****

Kovalev really isn't a sweet, nice guy. He has a sadistic side.

Default Re: HBO should market GGG and Kovalev as Soviet Killing Machines.

Yeah spot on CST. Been saying the same a for a while. This is Exactly how they should market Kovalev (or Beterbiev)

Fans would definitely respond to that. Seems to get ahead in todays game you need to be more than an amazing fighter. Presentation is massive

Hate to say it, but baaxing really needs to borrow from the pro wrestling world
