I'd love to see it, but I can't imagine Arum would allow it. He wants Crawford vs Taylor.
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.
Leonard Ellerbe has been giving interviews.
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.
Im 99 per cent sure he wont win however
The 1 per cent is Tank can punch hard
Arum does not care about JT as he is prepared to sacrifice him to Crawford.
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.
I think im right and you are wrong
That’s your prerogative obviously I just have a track record of of being right. However we shall find out in due course.
Im certain you get your fair share wrong too Olu
Anyway call me when the fights close to being signed
As long as Tank accepts he's the B Side and doesn't price himself out, this fight could well happen.
