HBO ruins fighters from other countries by putting them in bad matchups. The had Ricky Hatton move up a weight division to fight a southpaw Collazo, Sergey Dzinziruk move up to fight Sergio,
and talented up-and-comer Gregorsk Proksa fight Golovkin instead of a beatable opponent.
All those guys want to be on HBO in the US, so they'll agree to it.
Golovkin should fight a top middleweight. Oosthuizen should get another year's experience at 168 and then take a lucrative fight with some of the names in that weight division.
Same thing happened to Martinez. He fought margarito on HBO. Good ol marg beat the crap out of Martinez. But look now, Martinez is at the top.
