    As expected. Smoke and mirrors, try and get the fans excited and then let them down. Where do you think Crawford goes from here. Predictably, I think it will be Pacquiao vs Mikey which doesn't interest me at all.

    Maybe Crawford can actually go fight someone not in their 40s coming off a 2 year layoff.

    Crawford should fight Spence Jr, Garcia or Porter, not the ancient Pacquiao.

    Honestly I don’t think anyone with a brain who understands boxing thinks this fight was going to happen. There might have been a remote outside chance Pacquiao fights Spence but immediately he chose not to defend his WBA Super belt and Ugas was elevated to Super Champion the game was up.

    Great news.

    Crawford and Spence need to fight each other. Literally nothing else matters.

    Pacquaio needs to retire. I think people will be shocked by how poor he looks in his next fight, assuming he has one. Too long a layoff at that age.

    Yeah he's been out too long, regardless of how extraordinary his career has been. He may even have another big win in him however if he keeps going inevitably Pacman will get ko'd and hurt by a young hungry fighter coming through. Pacman like any fighter can't beat the clock.

    Call me a sucker. Ever since the idea of Crawford v Pacquiao was brought up years ago I couldn't wait to see it. At this point in 2021, I just don't care anymore. Pac man is a legend, but my passion for the fight is gone now frfr.

    Apparently, a contract was sent to both to agree to fight. Pac signed it, Bud didn't, and the investment fell through.

    So Bud ducked Pacquiao. What a *****.

    Earlier Spence most likely was not enough old for him to fight with, now Pac too appeared not enough old ?
