Same thing is happening in Toronto, I know a few amazing guys who turn pro, then only fight once a year against some bums because their handlers/"promoters" dont give them any fights. It's a omplete joke some of these people are noted in papers/tv's as "Canada's best Boxing people" but they RUIN everyone.. Only Montreal has something proper going on......the amount of talent we've had and wasted because of these useless promoters/handlers is insane..........
We need a big name promoter in Canada that will put on good fights every month, so much talent, I dont wanna name names, but some of these "Respected" people are jokes, they should stick doing kids/amateur fighters and then once their fighter goes pro they should find him a promoter/trainer/advisor that they trust to advance their career..
