K2 has to make the reward worth the risk. Do you think Andy Lee or Saunders will fight GGG for the same or less than they would get to fight Jacobs/Quillin?
Underpaid? GGG got 2 million and Lemieux got 1.5. It isn't like GGG got 12 mill.

If anything Jacobs and Quillin are severely overpaid. Don't know how long they can sustain overpaying these guys.
