i think regardless of nationality they should get hbo shots if they are skilled, highly ranked, and not fighting bums.
I don't know, are Floyd fights shown in eastern Europe? I wouldn't show them unless they got ratings. And Rigondeaux has mad skills and is exciting to watch, so there is a difference. You seem to be ignoring that HBO is a business. If the American public is not entertained than they will not watch. If they don't watch than business ceasts to exist. It's not about nationality, its about what you can sell to the people who keep you in business.
