Yup. A thing i forgot to mention in my post.
I don't care how promissing he is, but someone should tell him how it works. He has a record of 10-0 with wins over....nobodys: cans, boxers that box for those extra 2k a night in order to make some extra money and make sure that others like Omar have a nice record.
Why isn't he fighting contenders yet?! If not TOP 5-10 boxers, then at least TOP 20 fighters.
Because that's the way boxing is working. And that is the main reason boxing is going down like a massive rock down the mountain.
In MMA if you are good you get your chance to fight against contenders right away. An MMA fighter's record is something that usually tells the truth about how good he is, with some exceptions of course.
Someone should tell Omar that his record = zero so far. I don't care how promissing he is right now or how succesfull he will be in the future. Firstly he should beat a big name in boxing and maybe become a champ, and after that he could talk about MMA.
I believe he wouldn't last one minute in the octagon against any of the UFC, SF or WEC fighters.
