I fought the principle occasion on Showtime six instances, bought out arenas for Showtime, and nonetheless would get the ‘We don’t assume you’re sufficiently big to struggle on pay-per-view.’ Get out of right here. It’s crap. That’s why I might by no means struggle on the undercard of him or no person else who haven’t earned it. In the event that they’re not a world champion, Errol Spence, Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather, Terence Crawford, even Shakur Stevenson, in the event that they not below them I’m not combating on no undercard of no different males.”
