    Network fanboys
    Promoter fanboys

    GTFO out with this crap
    That's such a narrow minded view. I want to see the best fights but I would be a hypocrite to sit on the internet and tell a fighter to not make a smart business decision when he's getting punched in the face for a living. I'm not a fan of what Haymon is doing but from a fighter's perspective, I completely understand.

    No speech, no action, just follow him around at a 20 ft distance.
    Someone should hire the Westboro Baptist Church and tell them the only way Stevenson can be cured of his ****sexuality is by fighting Kovalev. They'd follow him everywhere.

    I'm pretty sure the Haymon apologist will also find a way of blaming Bob Arum for this..what's weird is this is the third person in 12 months to take shots at GBP and Haymon about their refusal to work with other promoters for their bigger stars..yet people will make excuse upon excuse...don't see duva, dibella and arum having any issues facing their fighters against each other.

Then HBO will put more money on the table for his fights and he will be able to get the top names in the division.

    My first reply was to make people realize the Stevenson-Kovalev fight still wasn't off the table. We're still 6 months away from the planned moment for that fight. Call me an optimist, but I still think the fight will happen.
    This kind of reasoning may exist only because there are many alphabet belts to date... Remember when there was only one world title...

    I do hope Stevenson will fight him, on Showtime or HBO. But to say he is ducking before the agreed moment of the fight (in the fall) is premature. If Stevenson beats Fonfara and then signs for a fight in the fall against another nobody, then I'll agree it's a duck, but it isn't abnormal at this point that the Stevenson-Kovalev deal isn't signed. The fall is still a long way ahead.
    No its not too early to call it a duck. We all saw this coming a mile away. If Stevenson goes to showtime for this fight, he will fight Hopkins next guarenteed its not even a discussion really. Its the fight he wanted all along anyway and there's no way showtime would over pay for this fonfora fight without some goal.

    Stevenson is literally running to another network to duck
    A kovalev fight. The only reason it almost happened before was cause they were both hbo fighters. At the earliest we might see the fight sometime in 2015.
