    if it was a stay busy leading into a tank fight in december i can understand, would have been three fights for this year with tank to come at the end of the year. i miss that sort of activity

    Yeh totally see that too. I just like quality over quantity. I mean fight prior to Fortuna was literally his stay busy but guess Hearn tends to lean heavy with guys across the pond to come get pounded out.

    Different promotions so another that won't happen but stylistically he and Michel Rivera would be nice imo

    https://www.boxingscene.com/haney-i-...fought--166948

    "Haney: I Don't Really Take Ryan Garcia Too Serious; Was My Mandatory & We Never Fought"

    In fact, Haney doesn’t expect Garcia to follow through on any of the challenges he has issued publicly. The undefeated, fully unified lightweight champion considers Garcia’s talk on social media and elsewhere to be just that – talk.
    “I don’t really take Garcia too serious,” Haney told BoxingScene.com. “He says a lot. The guy said he was fighting Pacquiao, and that never happened. So, I can’t really take him too serious.”



    https://www.boxingscene.com/gervonta...l-done--167830

    "Gervonta Davis: Garcia's Not A Man Of His Word, Fight Is Possible – I’ll Stay Quiet Till Deal Is Done"

    “I haven’t been going back and forth with Ryan because we all know he’s not a man of his word, but I do know it’s a possibility of the fight happening. So I rather stay quiet till the deal is locked. Nothing means anything now,” Davis wrote on social media.
    “Yea, we can make it happen to say the least. It’s already locked in if people do what’s right, ya know.”
    In a more cryptic statement, the Baltimore-bred Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) wrote: “And another thing – tell homie to stop talking for me.”




    Haney, Tank, Teofimo Lopez....

    They all concur. ChickenRy is nothing but an Instagram hype job. He talks a lot of shit... but nothing happens. Ever since he babbled about fighting Pacquaio in an exhibition, I knew this kid was soft and fragile. Fishnets says he's "moving on" from Tank because he doesn't want to see ChickenRy get starched like Santa Cruz was. Fishnets knows as soon as he puts ChickenRy in with any of the above mentioned three... the hype train is over and ChickenRy's gonna have to find himself another line of work. Which shouldn't be too hard, because he's already got a million fawning, casual fan followers on social media.

    king ry fought guys like vergil ortiz, devin haney & shakur in the amateurs, i think if it was purely down to the fighters they would have no issue fighting. unfortunately there is too much business & posturing involved these days, a side b side nonsense, promoter politics, networks. promoters are too scared of their fighters losing their zero & having to rebuild, while some fans are quick to squawk about a fighter being exposed after taking a loss. i don't mind fighters taking a loss if they are attempting to challenge themselves, how they come back is how i tend to assess them

    unfortunately with some fighters fighting once or twice a year it doesn't leave a lot of room for either quality or quantity. if ryan can't get tank this year then i'd like to see his team try to revisit isaac cruz, if a fight of that level can't be made then take a maxi hughes level guy, who is on a little win streak, with the intention of fighting the jo jo v camaron winner in the early part of next year

    While I agree KingRy is a punk declining his mandatory spot against Haney we have to be fair and say that Tank and Loma have also declined to activate their mandatory positions. Just saying the fact

    Yup. And I still believe Garcia is more hype than fight. However, I do realize he has an amazing check-left hook moving backward that is TO DIE FOR!!
    Bigger man George, bigger punch!

    i think ryan & devin were split evenly in the amateurs, i'd like to see them fight as pro's. i remember after the luke campbell fight, with devin in the crowd & ryan bringing up devin & asking the audience who he should fight next & the crowd was yelling we want tank. unfortunately neither fight has emerged. i credit devin for doing everything possible to unify the undisputed title & george who could have milked a voluntary defense or two at home first. since the luke campbell fight ryan has had his mental health issues & is now two fights back in to it, hopefully he can continue his momentum going forward. some people just have tunnel vision for certain fighters & neglect others who have done or are doing the same thing

    Ironically and almost ominously, the big bold letters on the cover say "State of the Game."

    Yeah.

    Somebody shut this little punk up... please.

    I swear I've never seen any fighter get as much mileage out of so few accomplishments as this little twerp.

    But that's how it goes today. Have Instagram, will travel...
