    I thought the big money wasn't put up by the wallets in Abi Dabai or where ever the fight was going to take place.

    Guy, do you really need it spelled out?

    :lol:

    Of course the contract and fight are CONTINGENT on the site fee being secured. It's in the contract. Pac signing tells me both received the final, everything-agreed-upon-version. And the contract would become official once the second the site funds are signed. The negotiations have been going on forever.

    Which is exactly why it's so utterly ridiculous to make any silly accusations about "ducks" when the most important prerequisite failed to materialize.

    They've been negotiating forever. And time was running out. Pac obviously didn't want to waste precious time waiting for the funds. He wanted everything in place so that the contracts would be executed as soon as the dotted line for the site fee is signed.

    If anybody thinks that Crawford is ducking Pac then it's just something that they wanna believe. You definitely can't get anyone who knows boxing to believe that crap.

    Young man begs for fight. Old man signs contract, but the young man doesn't.

    Just process that in steps. You'll get it.

    It seems to me like there has to be more to this story.

    I'm a huge PAC fan, could take or leave Crawford, but it doesn't make sense for Crawford to turn down a huge pay day (even if it's a smaller purse because of covid). Did PAC offer Crawford an unreasonable split? Fighters kill to get a fight with PAC.

    Crawford is deserving of criticism for not fighting top guys in the past, but I think theres something more to this than him just ducking Manny and missing out on a huge payday.

    I favor Crawford to beat Pac too, but I knew that fight wasn't going to happen. Bob Arum not going to pay Pac 40 mil. Even if that fight had happened and Pac beat Crawford, Spence will still be the A side cause he's the number 1 welterweight, and would have 3 of the belts after beating Ugas, plus he's P4P #3.

    It's not the man that he is weary about but the contract. Did you get that. Pac prematurely signed the contract and is probably very thankful that Crawford's people had the presence of mind to see the errors in it.

    This wasn't on Crawford. Blame Bob Arum. Pac even said the money promised wasn't there. He also said wouldn't have matter if Crawford sign now. No money, no fight. Pac team just offered Spence a fight in July! Spence no cause he already signed for a fight unification match with Ugas.

    Clearly there were outstanding items, the money seems like a pretty important “outstanding item”.

    Yes, u are correct. The money wasn't there, so Pac was like no fight. I knew this fight wasn't going to fall threw. Bob Arum cheap ass ain't giving Pac 40mil.
