    Gary Shaw Fires Back, Unloads on Top Rank/Golden Boy - Boxing News



    Sorry for just posting another news story, but after last night fight between Bradly and Abregu Max Kellerman said almost the same thing about GBp nd Top rank. That they were only wanting their fighters to fight fighters in thier Promotions. He went on to say that is why why haven't had some of the fights we have wanted to see. Like Bradley vs Khan or a tournament at 140 lbs.



    I don't like the fact that GBP and Top rank have become so big now that if you not signed with them that you almost get no TV coverage from the big networks like HBO or Showtime. What do you guys think are GBP and Top Rank to big for the sport or they moving the sport in the right direction.

    Seems it's the 90's again, with certain promotions protecting their guys.
    I agree with Shaw.

    This is basically moving towards ultimate fightin'.

    I am glad Max called them out.

    If Arum puts together Pac vs Cotto or Margacheato, it will just vindicate his statement.

    Because he has no tact whatsoever, anything that Gary Shaw ever says sounds like a spoiled kid crying because he didn't get his way.

    As long as boxings about the fighters, not the promotions, this type of system can not and will not work.

    Period.

    Yeah, thats why I was glad when Max brought it up last night. Cause when Shaw says something it does sound like hes crying. Hell did you see after the fight, the whole time Max was talking about it, he as trying jump in and say something. they had to turn the camera away.

    This is one of the few times that I like and agree with what Shaw has to say.

    The article doesn't due Shaw justice because whithout seeing it we can't witness all the slobbering and spit that was projected during his rant.
