Fraudley was crap, is crap and if he is stupid enough not to retire will remain crap. Excellent amateurs do not always good pros make.
Wtf are you talking about?
I'm not arguing that Harrison wasn't worthless (clearly, he is) or that Chisora is a worthy opponent (unknown as of yet)....but who the f are you talking about when you say there are others who are far more worthy and have done far more to earn a title shot?
The heavyweight division is fairly barren. And the ones who do/did have any sort of talent AND wanted to get in the ring with the champion/s (Klitschkos) have already been wiped out. And well...the second part of that is important because a few of the others (namely Povetkin and Adamek)...their handlers want no part in putting their fighter in to possibly get ruined as of yet.
The problem isn't with talent mismatches being purposely put together...it's that there's just nobody out there right now with the proper combination of bravery, talent, and toughness to put on highly competitive matches with the Klitsckos. David Haye has that talent potential (as much as I hate him) to at least give the idea of a threat to the Klitschko's, but it's obvious to anyone with half a brain that he's cashing in beating on fraud contenders he knows he can beat while he can before setting himself up to at least get paid a **** ton when he does get in the ring with a Klitschko so that in the event that he does lose (highly probable), at least he got to cash out.
