It's what Top Rank gets for being bad judges of talent, and hyping him up when they know he's flawed. They were grooming him as an opponent so their top guys won't have to fight harder opposition.

TMT is wasting money on legal fees and risking lawsuits trying to get him signed. At best, he'll be an opponent for the other top fighters TMT has signed.

He's got some solid skills, but not sharp enough to fight like he does.
