Guys like Nishioka and John have proven that eastern fighters can handle themselves in the US whilst top US guys don't seem to be happy to prove themselves internationally.

Historically, sure the US was the boss, no arguments about it, but they aren't any more, they have what, 3 or 4 of the top 10 p4p fights (well..Ring Magazine's top 10) they used to have 5 or 6. The US don't have a noteworthy heavyweight (the sports "premier division"), their cruiserweights are running off to Europe for fights, they keep flopping in the Olympics...basically what was once a boxing strong hold has weakened BECAUSE other countries (think former soviet countries) have started to see their fighters turning professional en masse. Ukraine for example has seen guys like the Klitschko's, Kotelnik, Senchenko, Dzinziruk, Nuzhnenko and Sydorenko all win titles since the fall of the Soviet empire as the sport has become more global


Yeah I went off topic and rambled but my point is that the US is not longer the only place to make your name.
lol you better not let Skullsplitter see this post, he will start a 'downfall of Germany boxing thread'

I agree though, boxing's stars are coming from all over the globe now, US boxing's once pre-eminent position is coming, or has come, to an end.

For some fights sure.

Not all. I think Klitschko's and Sturm as well as Abraham and Kessler made more in Europe than they ever did in the U.S

Like Kessler-Froch made a ton more than Kessler-Ward, and Abraham-Miranda or anyone surely did better than Abraham-Dirrell.

I am sure Klitschko made more fighting Adamek in Poland than Chris Arreola or even Corrie Sanders in L.A.


The point is there is lots of money for guys in Europe. I think more in total than in the U.S to be honest.

Part of me likes the I am the champ, come to me attitude.

I feel like that's how it should be but it's not gonna be.

Zavec made 2-3 times as much fighting Berto as he did defending his titles back home, I'm assuming.

I understand why he would fight in the Ukraine. Same reason why Hozumi fought in Japan. He'd make more money there than going to a place where not many even know who he is.

Believing in someone being robbed because they aren't american or Ukrainian is dumb. If you believe that, you don't believe in the skill of the fighter in question. I believe Senchenko would win either way. I'd like him to be respected on a grander scale. So it goes hand in hand for me.
So he should fight in the US because he would be more exposed? Thats up to him to decide how exposed he wants to be. Point is there are different countries and it is in his best interest to fight in Ukraine and Paulie's to fight in the US

But Senchenko is the champ, and Paulie is trying to call shots after having 1 WW fight?

Slovenia is pretty small though.

And Berto despite HBO overpaying him, is no cash cow.

Makes sense.

Like I said. I understand why he rather fight in the Ukraine and Senchenko should be the one to choose. He is the champ.

I guess it is up to him how much exposure he wants. But as a fan, I think it would be cool for him to get that mention like Canelo and others get. I've been talking about Senchenko on this site for 2 years now. And Malignaggi is a winnable fight that could get him the extra boost so guys like Ortiz or Berto would look at him as a potential fight.
