He is in a tough position because he's clearly the most talented boxer at 168 but his name and drawing power is not up to much. Guys like Bute, froch and kessler can make more money in bigger fights amongst each other so they don't need or want anything to do with him.
The middleweights too can make money without him.
His only option is to go up, Hopkins should beat cloud and ward should try fight Hopkins, who has a little name value.
Only problem is Warren is going to try put on cleverly vs Hopkins in Wales in a stadium
Ward is in a tough position
