The thing about the US is that the public will embrace anyone portrayed positively in the media. They don't even have to be talented, just popular.

If Wlad could get onto some mainstream US publicity machine and be a friendly, handsome charming guy...I think he could be popular.

Tyson popular? Michael Jordan popular? Pre-divorce Tiger Woods popular? Probably not, but who knows. Everyone loves Taylor Swift and she can't carry a tune in a bucket.
Thanks for the answers. I think you're spot on about media portrayal.

Do you think roach is enough for Chavez Jr to whoop Mr. Miguel?

probably not, although a surprise upset wouldn't surprise me THAT much. Cotto and pressure fighters are a bad combo. If retardarito could do it, then you never know what will happen.

bad comparison though because benavidez has way more talent and working in wild card will definitely help him progress. the amateurs only mean so much
