This. It's the right of passage. Again, he could fight a thousand more of these scrub fights and build a record of 1,026-0 and he still won't be a PPV headliner until he takes on (and defeats) someone who is. Like Floyd & Manny did with Oscar.
Right now beyond hardcore boxing fans, nobody knows or gives a sh*t who he is.
I'm not saying he won't one day be a PPV draw -- because he is on his way, but there's no way around it. He must get in with either a past headliner or be paired with another pretty sizable name to justify a $69.95 PPV bill.
