    Damn his nutthugger sure do talk big about who he will face next. Lol

    But look like little JoJo Diaz is who they are seriously after. A guy who isn’t discipline enough to make weight so is fighting at a weight class he doesn’t belong.

    An unproven challenger never deserves a bigger purse.

    That's fair. I kind of feel the same way about Taylor. I thought the decision he got over Prograis could easily have gone the other way and I'm not all that convinced of Prograis' ability. Everybody around here keeps saying Taylor is the goods so I'm watching. We'll see.

    That said, Tank won't fight Josh.

    Doesn't matter what anyone but JT thinks tbh.

    If he wants more, he can quite happily keep more. It depends what JT wants to happen, and how bad Tank wants the fight.

    You can't keep what you never had

    JT wont ever be positioned as the bigger earner

    He totally deserves to be based on achievements

    Taking less would probably still be more than Taylors ever earnt, so its a tough choice

    Anyway its pointless, fight wont happen

    Tank appears to be looking at JoJo which is criminal

    What he has is the belts.

    If JT feels he's worth more, he doesn't have to give Tank the shot.

    Yes, lol and nothing about fighting Dias hints at a boxer looking to fight a bigger man... (not two dots or four, but three)

    Davis is going nowhere near Prograis anytime soon: he doesn't seem to have the bottle to dare to be great.

    Either that, or Floyd and Ellerbe know something we don't. :sisi1

    Big shoutout to myself now that Jojo Diaz is looking like he's next.

    Jojo is coming to win! He's hungry!

    Don't matter, any challenger, turning down a fight based on not getting the lion share is an absolute duck.
