Instead of fighting rated guys, he fights unrated cab drivers, or wastes everybody's time calling out Juan Manuel fuc**ng Marquez at a catch weight of 135lbs in 2013! He DESERVES to be skipped.
People say he gets paid well to fight at home. I dont give a sh** if he fights at home, but atleast import some real fighters over there to face. You couldnt get Billy Dib over there? Caballero when he was at that weight? If the money is so good share the wealth and get some real damn fighters in the ring with you. What has he done outside of Rocky Juarez and JMM?
Skip him. and keep skipping him til he fights someone, drops out of the top 10, or retires.
I don't entirely disagree. It's a matter of the who here. John's comp has been much less than it could be. It hasn't been as awful as some would allege. Yordan is currently in the top ten at Ring and John beat him soundly and recently. Garcia has ZERO wins against their top ten. There's no excuse for Salido-Garcia being for their vacant title.
