Manny is popular in the US, but that doesn't mean any foreign champion will be as popular as an American champion. Manny has selected Las Vegas as his homebase for his fights, the Klitschkos have selected Germany because that's where they were since their amateur career and where they had their first achievements both amateur and professional, we don't know what would've happened if they had signed with Don King instead of Universum. And correct me if I'm wrong, doesn't Epix show all of their fights in the US? So you can't say they're not televised in the US. And even HBO is interested if a good opponent is available (Haye, Adamek, etc.).
