    I'd love to see it, but I can't imagine Arum would allow it. He wants Crawford vs Taylor.

    Hold on

    The article just seems to be Teddy Long answering a question with the expected answer


    Nothing about the fight being possible

    Remember when it happens I called it. People thought I was mad when I said Fury would stop Wilder in the 2nd fight, use his weight on him , push him back and rag doll him amongst other picks.

    I think these intents are casual tales.
    Arum ofc might want to get Crawford vs Taylor at 147 lbs in US to get Crawford next win vs 140 lbs division champ.
    If Taylor will have brains, he should insist on fight vs Crawford in U.K and at 140 lbs weight in limits and with rehydration clause.
    If he wish to sell 0 then might agree with old smart Bob.

    Floyd Jr does knows that Tank did not had beated up any top fighter at 135 lbs not alone 140 lbs division.
    While Tank is enough athletic for 140 lbs division, he did not had beated any 135 lbs division elite guy, not alone 140 lbs division lad.
    He even heavily struggled with old Gamboa version_________

    Tanks fans might post crybaby and insults, I'm not sure that he is able to beat even Campbell, not alone Linares, Nakatani, Loma, Lopez, Garcia.
    Maybe cos lad is very athletic and still. Will see.
    Talks in pro boxing is stuff to get fans attention, induce posts in forums etc.

    If some fight ol Bob wants to get, it most likely is Crawford vs Taylor or Lopez vs Taylor.

    Arum does not care about JT as he is prepared to sacrifice him to Crawford.

    I know

    Thats what I referenced

    No other comments in regards to the fight being on the radar

    More a promotional interview and answer in my view

    You are wrong. Tank has TNT power but his boxing ability, speed and athleticism is top notch as well as is his ring generalship. More than enough dog in Tank to beat JT.

    Didn't say he was going to try make the fight did he? I will concur it's 'highly likely' when offers are made rather than trash talked.

    As long as Tank accepts he's the B Side and doesn't price himself out, this fight could well happen.
