    It’s easy just do it like the old school fighters did it. Fight 9 absolute bums, no hopers, and 1 or 2 meaningful fights a year. You’ll end up with the inflated 130-12 win-loss record and have historians talking about how you were one of the greatest.

      Itís better for everyone.
      You get to stay busy all year and are always in shape. More people can go watch you live. Youíre not sitting on the bench for 8-16 months like most champions today.
      Training for elite comp is different then fighting a cw with a bum that has no chance of winning.
      Seems like every fighter acts like their the next super star before even doing anything.
      2 fights 12-16 doesnít do anyone any good imo honestly

          That would be ideal, and although I said it jokingly, I do prefer boxers to stay active, even if itís against total no hopers. The issue would be the TV/Stream slot. Every top fighter is going to want to headline also, so you canít bunch them up in 10 cards per year because egos will get in the way. Then thereís money. Even if Danny Garcia or Manny Pacquiao were to fight a no hoper, they would likely want a couple million dollars per fight even against a top 50 opponent. Lastly, you have the interest level. Why did that old style of promoting fighters died? Having them fight 10 times a year. Fans and networks probably got tired of all the tomato cans and it brings us to where we are today. Fighters who are 10-0, 20-0, fans want them to fight the #1 P4P fighter of the world.

            Kovalev had 3 fights in 2019. February, August, and September. He almost got KO'd in August by Yarde, and did get KO'd in November by Canelo.

              Danny should've completed his sentence..."it's not easy, I'd like to keep fighting easy fights"

                Great Post! If anyone disagrees with this, please see Joe Louis' "The Bum of the Month Club." Also check Mike Tyson 1985 (15 fights), 1986 (13 fights). 1986 was much better! I don't think anything that impressive has been done since, especially at HW! It's a great method for young, up-and-comers, but not great for Top 10 fighters. CTE!

                  What precipitated Garcia's arrogance is probably insecurity as much as anything else.

                    Not as blatant a mismatch as this one - a former 2 time high profile champ against a 4-loss b level opponent as a Showtime main event...Showtime supposed to b above this crap....Pbc should put these crap showcase mismatches on Fox.

                      I thought Haymon was going to "save boxing"? He can't get Danny 3 or 4 fights per year? GTFOOH. PBC hoards all the talent at 147/154, you telling me he can't get Danny fights? What he's really saying is that it's difficult to get 3 or 4 cherry picks per year.
