I’d say it’s about the orgs,
I’d say it’s about the orgs, not the fighters. Dana doesn’t do tune-ups for top fighters. He can make more money on them win or lose, against a good opponent.
It’s these outside fighters whose management has the “boxing” mindset of not damaging their marketability. Dana can push any fighter whenever he thinks it’s worth the time & money. Or bury them!!
It’s pure economics for these guys to fight cans if they can get paid a million bucks for it!!
