    Porter is a tough guy. I don't deny that. He has a granite chin and an aggressive fighting style but I prefer to watch Crawford vs Spence or Pacquiao.

    same here, but porter would make Crawford dig deep and show what hes really made out of.

    I don't recall Garcia beating him but I do remember Sheffield's finest, the Chocolate Brownie Merchant, The Special One... Kell Brook getting one over on him :)

    I would approve either fight. Either fight would be a huge step up in competition for Crawford!

    Absolutely, the eye test looks good but at some point you got to go out there and prove it

    Agreed , I think Crawford would bust Porter up and he'd have a hard time making the distance

    I don't think Haymon will allow and will continue to freeze out Bud.

    I disagree with your fight assessment but obviously respect it. I think Shawn takes Bud the distance and gives Terence fits

    Agreed, I'd still pick Bud to win. But only just. Shawn Porter is an acid test for ANYONE. He's as physical a fighter as I can think of in quite some time. I personally had him beating Thurman and he makes for a miserable night for anyone. A big part of dealing with him is strength and size. Thurman, Brook and Spence are all massive welterweights. Crawford is not... I think it's an extremely interesting fight and I'd be beyond impressed if Bud somehow stopped the little bowling ball.

    Crawford is probably my favourite fighter and I would love to see him fight any of the fighters listed above, he is so comfortable in fight and I just love the micro adjustments he makes in fight and his versatility is awesome, he will probably never get the fights to make him an atg and iam not even implying that he’s one of the best right now I just love to watch him fight
    If he can’t get spence then pac or Porter would be fine with me
    I just wanna see him fight

    Broner would be a good matchup for him aswell imo, not because he’s relevant but because he’s so relentless and he would bring out the best in bud.

    Yea it would be quite a feat, for anyone, let alone Bud, to stop Shawn. He's as tough as they come. I always said that 5 yrs ago a Maidana vs Porter fight would have been legit

    This would make for an interesting fight. I don't see Porter giving bud any distance or time to be tactical. He would make Crawford fight on instinct. It has the makings of a highly competitive fight.
