    Crawford and Mike are not tougher fights. Spence is unpredictable. U not sure if u are going to get a come forward version, boxing version or a brawling version. Crawford can't destroy Spence lol. Spence would beat Crawford and clearly not ducking. Spence told Crawford in 2019 he was going to fight all the fighters on his side of the street (PBC) and get all the belts first, and that's what he has done. Once Spence beats Ugas, Crawford is next! Pac is ducking Spence. Spence called him in the ring after beating Mikey, then challenged him to fight. Pac said he would fight, but never responded to Spence for a fight.

    Crawford is consensus P4P 1-3. I think Pac wanted to take Crawford's belt first before fighting Spence. Spence is a bigger draw than Crawford, so if Pac could beat Crawford first, he'd have an even bigger slice of the A-side pie in a mega fight.

    They're negotiating now.

    BTW, I'd favor Crawford to beat Pac. 70/30.

    Does it not say the funding didn’t come through from the Arabs? What am I missing?

    Right, but how can you sign without knowing what you’ll be paid?

    you cant. just like you shouldnt turn down the fight for the same reason, you dont even know whats gonna get offered. unless youre looking for reasons not to fight, instead of looking for reasons to fight.

    Holy crap, when I first saw people posting this I thought it was a joke.

    He ducked a 40 something guy who's gonna be a whole weight class smaller on fight night? Even if the big Abu Dhabi money didn't come through Pac in the MGM bubble or a high school auditorium is still probably the biggest money fight for him, not to mention it boosts every other purse the rest of his career...

    Is this really a "duck" if the backing was never finalized?

    It's a bad look either way. Given his words over the years, you'd think he would be the one waiting for a signature from Pac.
