    Interesting- youíd think Hearn etc would be all over him now, chucking contracts at him?
    Hearn was all over him and texting him galore to sign, they get on well but JT chose top rank as it was the easiest way to get the undisputed fight made and there would be no boxing politics involved

    Just read an article in the Guardian where JT is talking about legacy and belts being more important than fame and recognition which is a good attitude.

    I'm not sure if I believe him though - based on his tweet about SPOTY not recognising him.

    Of course the titles and legacy are more important. It doesnít mean recognition isnít important at all though as that all builds towards legacy. Josh has shown the choices he has made that legacy is his ultimate end goal. He could have went with Matchroom and been a huge name with a huge bank balance. Instead he went with Top rank so he could get his Ramirez fight and at the time the Crawford fight.

    Itís a good attitude and has served him well. I just took from the interview that although he says that he regrets it a bit due to the kicking recognition he gets.
