I'm very impressed that Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports organization is showing that they are interested in Dusty. I now understand the moves his dad (Buddy) is making. I hope Buddy still will have total control over how often Dusty fights and who Dusty's opponents will be. With Dusty being 20 years old yes it's time to shift gears just a little from the fights he's had when he was 17. Looking back on his career I see the progression. Yes the title fight will put Dusty on the radar, but I think Buddy still will know the right fights to take to keep them on track. I did my homework on Rainone and I think as long as Dusty does what he's trained to do he will have no problem leaving the ring with a victory. Personally I think All-In Entertainment wanted to move Dusty faster than what TEAM DUSTY was ready for. I also think that it was more about business (money) than moving Dusty the right way and the right time to get him to the championship level. To shorten it up,I think it was too fast for TEAM DUSTY. I do understand both sides but that's just my opinion. I have no facts. The question is why is All-In Entertainment willing to let another promotion be interested in their fighter that is doing so well? Also why not just shut that down from the start?
