Oleg Hermann, the manager of WBA "regular" middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (21-0, 18KOs), would like to see his fighter face WBO champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs), but says the two boxers needs to fight in other markets, especially the United States, to build their names because most fans are not familiar with him and that creates a problem in selling this type of a fight to a major cable network. Almost all of Pirog's fights have been staged in Russia, while Golovkin has been fighting mostly in Germany.

"Pirog is a very interesting opponent for us. But Gennady and Dmitry must first make a name for themselves in America and then try to unify the titles. Because at the moment it appears from a financial point of view, this fight is not going to create interest, neither in Russia or Germany, or anywhere else. If both boxers move forward and build something in a certain market, then it makes it possible to sell this fight, for example, on American channels HBO and Showtime - then this fight can take place," Hermann told Alexander Pavlov.

[QUOTE=2501]Lara is willing to fight him but Pirog is saying the same thing others are saying about Pirog. "Who?"[/QUOTE] Lara isn't even in the same division.

This is why I think it doesn't make sense to make Pirog vs Martinez right now. Pirog has potential to make a great opponent for Martinez, but it would be a shame to waste Pirog on Martinez before he's able to make a bit of a name for himself fist. If Pirog beats Geale on Showtime, Martinez vs Pi...
