You don't do good business by saying what will LIKELY happen. You do good business by presenting what could happen, which creates the intrigue.
The biggest liar of them all is Bob Arum. "Rios will be a tough test for Manny." Ummmm, no he won't. Not if Manny is even 50% of what he was. He's made to order, tailor made and RIPE like a sweet, sweet mango, just hanging from the tree.
In the management consulting biz, we call that "plucking the low-hanging fruit."
It's just showbiz. If someone tries to sell you the fountain of youth, do you believe him or do you buy?
And if you do decide to buy, who's really on the wrong side of things?
And disregard Oscar's sentiments, anyway. He's not all that....you know....he kinda lacks in the cognitive department.
