I love fighters like Matthysse but to be a star in boxing you have to do more than just handle business in the ring. You have to make people want to pay to see you fight and Judah has done that for over a decade.
People complain about Judah but how many Lucas Matthysse fights have you been too? What are you doing on your end to make sure he gets bigger opportunities? If Richard Schaefer doesn't believe Matthysse can fill stadiums in Brooklyn, he's not going to get opportunities.
We do know which Zab will turn up though & that is the problem, people buy into his sh1t talk & his hype. You know he will beat C level guys and you know deep down when its time to step up & hit the big time, the guy will fold! People always convince themselves ''Super Judah is coming this time'' & it ends in tears for them and they're like ''Should of listened to my head'' I see it everytime. Hes good at selling himself; I've gotta give him that.
I think he believes he can do it but when things don't go as planned he looks for a way out.
It shouldn't be about personalities though. Lucas is never ever in a bad fight & I would love to go out and watch him fight live but admittedly, I can't afford the luxury. It would literally cost me £2000/$3200 probably at a minimum to go see the guy fight live.
