So I don't really think he should be in any different spot than he is right now. He's no Campillo.

i have not seen the prescott fight in a while, but it was competitive. again, the argument can be made that abril won that, along with all of his other fights.


a W over rios would have changed abril's life. he doesnt even have a fight scheduled, and nobody is calling him out. at the least he would have likely gotten a rematch at 140 with rios for the biggest payday of his career.

you can bet that arum is intentionally trying to keep abril shelved. even if he's not promoting the guy, his influence extends to commissions, sanctioning bodies, venues, networks, etc. if he wants a guy shelved he can use a ton of leverage with these organizations with the threat of cutting them out of top rank fights.

don king used to sign guys to long term contracts for no reason other than to keep them shelved.
