    Even if he won a world title in the US, the chances are 0 UK TV would pick it up. So it would still make him a harder sell to the general public.

    Be better having the big domestic fights as a co-main and build a following that way

    Wonder if the IBO belt might tempt him

    Shows the mockery of these rankings titles. Sharp has done nothing domestically other than beating area level fighters. Then boxed unknown imports for this wbo ranking title. Believing his own hype, that his world level when fights with cacace and barrett who imo ay world level their selves have been turned down its a joke.

    I agree but at least barrett had won the European title. Which I know the opposition wasn't great but is a recognised title by all governing bodies. Sharpe has been very local saying his being avoided but his had chances for domestic fights to prove his level. Cacace Sharpe barrett were all with fw at the same time.

    The WBO route under Frank is to avoid any legitimate domestic challenges whilst very slowly upping the quality of the nobody or has been you face and wait for the shot at the WBO title to either win or have as your cash out fight. Trouble is that this only works if you stay under Frank, he's the lubricant that keeps those dodgy cogs turning.

    I thought this too but to be fair to Barrett he gave a great account of himself

    No chance high risk low reward. He won't want to risk his undeserved high ranking and possible world title shot.

    He may do. But he won't take any risky fights like cacace.

    Twitter suggesting Anthony Cacace vs Jono Carroll is a done deal for Belfast. Good main event that.
