Pirog,..they call him the Russian Mayweather.... the most feared middleweight in boxing,.. and he doesn't have to advertise because his opponents do it for him..... for instance Even Sergio Martinez has a ton of excuses why he's not fighting this guy(google it for yourself). Pirog is just the first salvo of a multi-pronged attack on the middleweight division that will change the face of the middleweight division as we know it.....Following Pirog, Several more dynamic EasternBlok and Euro middleweights are about to complete the kidnapping the whole MW division where it will he held in European Lock-down for at least a little while. (and I'm not talking about Zbik, Sturm, or Giovanni)

@brownsugar. Now, now. You know every LEGIT (A.K.A. Ring Magazine) world champion is entitled to a softer touch in his first title defense if he so chooses and I still have no complaints with the way Sergio Martinez has been going. Sergio isn't really taking on a soft touch even now after Kelly Pavlik and Paul Williams. Some people would say that Sergio is ACTUALLY the pound for pound #1 boxer in the world. I'm almost inclined to agree. Trust me. Pirog will get his shot. I just hope Pirog isn't too much like DUCKweather, whoops, I mean Mayweather. If that's true, pretty soon you'd see Pirog start calling out Luis Collazo or maybe even Felix Trinidad out of retirement at junior middleweight.

brownsugar says:

I patiently await that day Isaiah.... Pirog has already politely asked Martinez for a shot. Which Sergio graciously declined. We'll talk later on the subject.. If Martinez can get past his next challenger(who is no slouch either),.. Perhaps he'll develop the courage to at least pronounce the first syllable in Pirogs name.. The Thing is,... there are even greater challengers than Pirog on the horizon, and these guy should finally be gaining national attention this year. I hear that N'Dam N'Jikam is getting an HBO shot, he's probably not the strongest of the group... but they're coming.

FighterforJC says:

Actually, Pirog will be the one doing all the ducking and dodging outside of the ring if he truly was the "russian mayweather." I hate bringing up the same old things, but Margarito, Cotto, Paul Williams, Mosley and even Winky Wright all called out Mayweather. Nobody's calling out Pirog.
