Undefeated light heavyweight prospect Ryan "The Irish Outlaw" Coyne (19-0, 8KOs) reached out to BoxingScene.com to issue a challenge to WBA light heayweight champion Beibut Shumenov (12-1, 8KOs). Coyne has seen Beibut's unsuccessful attempts at unifying his title and feels that he is the champion's best option at this point in time.
 
"Ryan, I'm a bit of a boxing headline junky and I stay on top of what's going on in the news, in the gym, and behind the scenes. I keep seeing Beibut Shemunov is frustrated that the big fights keep alluding him," stated Coyne.  "I feel your frustration bro. That sucks but that's the world we live in. Showtime and HBO aren't beating down your door. I think they go to the wrong house more than they should, but that's the politics of the game," he continued.
 
Shumenov has seen potenial fights against the likes of WBO champion Nathan Cleverly, former WBC champion Jean Pascal and IBF champion Tavoris Cloud fall through the cracks.  Coyne feels that Shumenov would be better off fighting and up and coming fighter rather than just sitting on the sidelines waiting for a fight to materialize.
 
"Let's just say it like it is, you're not getting that unification fight. Cleverly isn't leaving Wales to fight you stateside and Pascal doesn't fly south of the border. Hopkins and Dawson are gonna do their thing again. You're without a dance partner guy," Coyne told Boxingscene.com
 
"You've got an undefeated hungry Irish kid here stateside who's ready to go tomorrow. I'm 19-0 and I've been begging and pleading for a title clash. That big fight hasn't materialized yet for me either, so I've been staying busy since I have the patience of a toddler. Is my resume a little thin? Sure, that is the story of my life. I'm rated #4 with the World Boxing Association and I've been pressing for a title shot for two years now."
 
Coyne finished our conversation by mentioning his failed title shot against WBA cruiserweight champion Guillermo Jones.  The Panamanian fighter pulled out of their fight less than a week before the title fight was scheduled to take place.  Coyne, who was an undersized cruiserweight, has gradually moved down to light heavyweight since that fight fell through.  The Irish Outlaw said that Shumenov just needs to have his represtentivie talk to Don King and the fight can easily be made.
 
"I had a title shot signed and sealed and the champ backed out 6 days before the fight. I held up my end of the deal. Now I'm in the division where I belong and I'm a tank at 175. So have Don (Chargin) call Don (King) and let's do it.  If you don't fight me now, in 6 months I'll be your mandatory anyway and then I'll solve all your problems.  Bullshit and smack talk isn't really my thing but this is a business and most of the time it is a business before a sport unfortunately.  You don't have many options at this point. I'm ready for this fight and in position to do so. Do what you have to do man, but I'm ready now and it's only a matter of time," Coyne concluded.

Coyne...lol. What a stupid press release. Nobody knows who the hell Coyne is. He isn't even on Shumenov's radar. [QUOTE=BIGPOPPAPUMP]Undefeated light heavyweight prospect Ryan "The Irish Outlaw" Coyne (19-0, 8KOs) reached out to BoxingScene.com to issue a challenge to WBA light heayweight cha...

It'd be nice to see Coyne in an actual fight as he strikes me as a guy who will get beaten when he steps up...funny he's calling out a guy fighting at 175 though, whatever happened to his date/s with Guillermo Jones...
