In this day and age of boxing, it has become easier to push a fighter into the realm of the background, if you have the power to do so, the best fighters are not be showcase correctly, mainly because of inflated contracts and bottom line revenue. Cuban boxer Richar Abril, who has duel citizenship, travel backwards and forward between the two countries and is often asked about why he isn't a big star in the boxing world yet.
Abril just smiles and say the powers in American boxing, don't like the Cuban style of boxing. After an impressive fight against rising superstar at the time Brandon Rios, no one even gave the slick fighter a chance. "We knew that Rios has trouble with movement and that's what I use in the ring, said Abril, it was one of my easiest fights, I was winning every round, without being hit." Rios hasn't shaken that performance off just yet, because it was that fight alone that made Mike Alvarado use that formula in the ring and just as of late Manny Pacquiao.
Abril has suffered some injuries that has sidelined his career some, but he knows that other promoters don't want to risk their champions career and belts against him.
