    It will not be for more money that’s for sure as he was going to make over a million for this fight.

    he has no promoter so it’s crazy on top of this if he wins the fight he gets a fight vs winner of AJ vs Fury or elevated to champ amd his earnings would be life changing.

    only reason he hasn’t taken it is to duck Hrgovic,

    looking at IBF rankings based on what is in place we now get Hrgovic vs Martin or more likely Hrgovic vs Parker which will be interesting

    Well that just sucks. What the hell does it take to make top level HW fights?

    Real shame. Hunter vs. Povetkin was one of my favourite recent fights.

    Yep it’s a duck. Hunter is held in high regard by some on this forum, let’s watch the excuses roll in.

    How was he making over a million for fighting Hrgovic when Hearn won the purse bid with only a bid of $606K. Hunter was going to get 60% for a purse of around $360K. Where are you getting this million plus figure from?

    It is crazy he has no promoter though, he went from fighting Kuzmin in at Madison Sq Garden and Povetkin in Dubai to fighting a nobody in Galveston Texas.

    Hrgovic/Parker would be a good fight and beating Parker would do more for Hrgovic than beating Hunter or Martin. So if Hrgovic/Parker happens this might very well work out in his favour.

    Parker for all his faults will take the fight.

    Hunter is one of the most overrated heavyweights on this board.

    While Usyk is "too small", despite being a bigger man than Hunter, Hunter is "mobile and tricky"...

    Could you be any more stupid?

    I really don't think so.

    I won't call Hunter a ducker unless it's clear he picked an easier opponent without substantial financial recompense or chance to advance his career. His track record of fighting dangerous and highly ranked fighters speaks for itself. Hrgovic, not so much.

    It's a joke it's obvious as hell he's not as skilled as Vitali Klitschko.

    But funny thing i caught you saying you wouldn't favor anybody to beat Vitali even though he lost to Lewis. Could YOU be anymore stupid. o_O:lol:

    Someone raised a very valid point, Hunter missed a drugs test and a few weeks later pulls out with no excuse...suspicious.

    Vitali wasn't that skilled. Throw a few arm punches, lean back, rely on your chin. Sums it all up.

    Obviously not the fighting man he claims to be.
