    One Time refers to Thurman's fight frequency in the last 3 years.

    He's a joke and Crawford shouldn't even consider fighting him.

    Not interested unless Thurman takes on a tune up first and looks like a full time boxer. Someone like Avenasyan would be a better opponent for Bud at this stage, if no Spence or Ugas.

    If the option is TC versus a 'gimme', I'll take fight w/ KT over that.

    Thurman is done. At this point we all should think about removing him from the top 10 of the division. I'm really disappointed in his career, he was at such a high level, he has a lot of spoiled potential.

    There is no version of Once-Upon-A-Time that is likely to beat Crawford. If he fights it'll be Mikey running from Spence and holding his arms up in survival triumph at the end of every round all over again. It's boxing. They are both pros. Anything can happen, but Thurman no longer wants to. He's just there for the paycheck. Tell you what, make it a 12' by 12' ring. Then I'd be interested.

    If Pac can drop him , Crawford stops him.

    Provided Vergil Ortiz Jr does not start crying like Spence reminded him of.

    So you wouldn't be interested in that tourney? Do you consider the results a forgone conclusion? Are you saying that Ortiz has no business in a ring with Spence? Be forthright. Say it.

    I would rather Spence vs Ugas in the proposed competition. Spence has inside knowledge about Ortiz in Texas and it would be a walkover win for Spence. We want some real jeopardy in the competition so that even if Bud and Spence are favourites there is a genuine element of doubt. I know Ortiz does not provide this like Ennis and Ugas do.

    I really don't like Keith. He is just too phony and although he is a solid boxer, with his inactivity he isn't going to pose any threat whatsoever to Bud. Crawfords handspeed would have Keith on his bike by round 2. Ennis would be a fun matchup imo
