Regardless of what Jim Lamply says, B-Hop and Ward are obviously the most logical next steps for Stevenson. Clearly, Lamply and HBO have an agenda and that's why he shot down the B-Hop and Ward fights immediately. Him not wanting Stevenson to fight B-Hop is obvious. HBO is no longer doing business with GBP. Therefore if Stevenson-Hopkins happen, it would be on Showtime. As for Ward, HBO is hoping to eventually build him into a PPV fighter. And right now, they are giving Froch and GGG major pushes in order to build them into big time dance partners for future PPV events with Ward. Stevenson is still green to the public, and they wanna let that fight marinate. Either way, I hope Stevenson goes after and gets one of these guys. Forget HBO and whatever way they try and steer him.
