Default HBO/SHOWTIME Need to make stars out of........

The P4P quality fighters that aren't getting P4P fights, HBO and Showtime have the power to make them stars to make big fights in the future. The following need building up:

Guzman - the best 130lber imo - but no one knows him so cant get big fights

Williams - maybe the best 147lber, maybe not but cant get big fights because no on knows him

Chad Dawson - The best 175lber with the P4P level skills/ability. Can't get a big fight because........

Haye - do many people know him stateside? The best Cruser and may become the best HW

Witter - best 140lber but no one knows him

Linares - best 126lber but no one knows him

HBO and Showtime need to grab hold of the biggest talents and promote them because it will make them more money in the future and it will save the sport

And? There is more to being a star than beating everybody in the division

Haye has everything to bring some much needed excitement to the heavyweight division, win or lose. He has skills, power, charisma and the courage to take on anybody

Even the yanks are going to like him

Having only been here for a few days you must not have noticed that alot of americans see the european style as boring, where as haye is all action a style that everyone can enjoy.

yeah, but "alot" of people doesn't constitute an entire country.
