    Pretty sorry from Bobs end
    Khan is not a ppv worthy opponent
    We all know he’s getting stopped again
    Crawford is losing his best years fighting gimmies

    Man these guys today just have unending, protracted careers fighting no hopers.

    40 years ago you would of had Thurman, Garcia, Porter, Crawford, Spence, etc. All fight each other multiple times and they would all be shot by 31.

    Today they just hold their **** and fight bums until they're 38 and say hey "I'm undefeated p4p, too slick, too much defense"...

    At least Porter has a good resume man
    Crawford has been terribly spoon fed
    I’m a big fan too but it’s getting boring

    It looks like Golden Boy Promotions is the only promotional outfit matching their fighters fair.

    Nah, they do it as well. But not as bad as PBC. No one right now does it as bad as PBC.

    Not as bad as anyone else. Their top fighters always get matched hard. As a boxing fan Its a great philosophy.

    But I was very wrong with my Spence-Garcia prediction, I don’t know much promotion this fight gets.

    If Crawford can't land Khan's got a chance.

    Like post 10x over. couldn't have offered a better statement on the state of boxing and WW in particular.

    And as @GK BOX said, props to Shawn Porter for actually going out there and gunning for the best and putting together an actually very good and diverse resume. I was just back in the Teddy Atlas podcast thread re-listening to Teddy on the Rogan podcast and Teddy almost tearing up talking about Bobby Chacon and the tough-as-nails MF'er he was and sadly is all but forgotten about. Chacon was practically in a war with someone every other day, yet noewadays nobody fights anyone who poses them a threat and are so risk averse its sickening. And the worst part -- the casuals will remember these spoon-fed champions who may end up undefeated in the end and praise them forever, but any mention of Bobby Chacon to them and their response is: "Bobby who?" I gotta step back for a minute and relax, I'm getting so mad over all this im almost seeing red and on the verge of getting emotional over internet forum ****. Pathetic, I know.

    For all you out there that truly appreciate fighters and warriors -- not necessarily the best boxers, but fighters/warriors and have yet to see Bobby Chacon in action, I beg you, please take some time out of your lives and watch some of the many displays of toughness and intestinal fortitude Bobby displayed during his career -- on the regular. He's really suffering from the after affects of such wars, the least us fans can do for him is go back and watch his displays and give him his due respect. Please.

    Thurman has fought Danny Garcia and Porter (won both). Danny Garcia as fought Thurman and Porter (Lost both). Porter has fought Thurman, Brooke, Broner and Danny Garcia (beat Garcia and Broner). Broner has fought Pacquiao, Porter and Mikey Garcia (lost all). Spence has fought Brooke and Mikey Garcia (won both). Porter and Spence are fighting next.

    Crawford is the guy who isn't fighting anyone at welter. Danny Garcia knocked out Khan so long ago people don't even talk about it anymore.

    But would they get into the ring with Crawford or Spence. Nobody besides Porter really wants them. Because right now they're the 2 baddest 147 pounders. And nobody wants to chance it.

    Of course we can blame Arum for matching Crawford so softly. But at some point Bud has to take responsibility for his OWN career. He knew that all the top welterweight are on the other side of the network. I’m sure he’s comfortable fighting dudes he knows he can beat while making a cool million each time. But what about legacy man. He literally had one of the easiest paths to undisputed in a long time. Pistol then that Namibian Indongo who got obliterated by Prograis soon after.

    I love Bud and I know he can fight like the best of them. This network BS is just LAME

    Crawford would be fighting all those guys, but he's aligned with Bob Arum, who hates Al Haymon.

    Nobody is ducking Crawford. He knew what he was getting into when he recently resigned with Arum. All the welterweights fight elsewhere. Spence, Porter, Thurman, both Garcias, Pac, Broner and they all fight each other at some point. (I didn't even include guys like Devon Alexander and Andre Berto and the others who don't have belts.)

    Crawford is on the wrong team. That's it.
