Default Pirog beat three mediocre opponents since his win over Jacobs

This guy has been wasting his prime and our time hardly fighting at all and when he stepped in the ring, he couldn't be arsed to fight credible opposition. Granted, Maciel is underrated and gave him some problems, but let's be blunt, there's no name on his resume other than Jacobs with recognition value.
What's it with him? Is he not confident in his abilities? Ishida said, Pirog is an A tier fighter and I'm in inclined to believe him but why exactly did he come to the conclusion that not capitalizing on his spectacular victory over Jacobs is a good idea? I heard he's injury prone (especially his back) but I'm not sure I'm buying it just like that. I for one remain sceptic about him until he fights a Geale/Martinez/Golovkin/Sturm/JCC level MW. Hopefully, the Golovkin fight gets rescheduled. That would solve a lot of questions about either fighter.

Three dire opponents in two and a half years is a poor yield for a boxer who is supposed to be a top 5 MW.

Pirog has the potential to be one of the great hypejobs of this generation, I honestly believe he has what it takes to follow in the footsteps of Lucian Bute and Andre Berto when it comes to wasting his talent.

I remember reading that, yeah. However, I am a little sceptic about Titov - why would he know Martinez's purse? Was it publicly disclosed? And why would Martinez duck a relatively unproven boxer when he has a history of facing the best?

Wouldn't believe anything Team Pirog had to say after the shit they pulled when he was supposed to be fighting Golovkin.

Martinez should fight Arthur Abraham @ 168
Why Martinez boxes at 160 lbs.

Pirog was a one hit wonder break out star for beating Danny ****ing Jacobs

Pirogs best win is a green guy who disappeared

Guys aren't exactly falling over themselves to face very good fighters with little name recognition and an even smaller fan base (in America anyway).

I did lose sympathy with him after the Golovkin debacle though. That would've been a terrific fight.

You sure you ain't biased? Why would you omit Pwill x2, Cintron and Pavlik? Also, JCC entered the ring with a decent resume and was far from "green". Yet, Martinez tooled him all night before he got a little too careless at the end. Macklin was robbed in Germany against Sturm so he's legit as well. Barker ain't too bad either.

He also fought Margarito though at an early stage of both guys' careers.
