    Its so sad to see top level fighters wasting their careers because of irrational fear

    You got Mikey Garcia daring to be great and making the other wws look real bad by fight Spence

    Crawford and spence never mention each other

    Thurman/porter don't want to fight Spence

    Danny Garcia doesn't want to fight spence and Crawford

    Spence doesn't want no smoke from Crawford

    I mean how long is this going to go on for?

    The fact Mikey is fighting spence says a lot about the state of the division

    At least Garcia/Thurman/Porter are fighting one another. Crawford and Spence need to step up.

    Wrong as usual, boxing_master. Crawford has talked about fighting Spence and Arum has said he is willing to make that fight.

    Very easy to call someone who risks their life each time they step in the ring a coward behind a keyboard.

    I question anyone’s sanity who believes fighters are ‘scared’ of any oppenent, they’re fighters.

    It’s a case of risk/reward for most of these guys, if you can earn similar money against a B level guy, why would you rush into a tougher fight against an elite fighter in the division? Unfortunately for us fans, it’s a business. Post Mayweather we’ve seen more and more fighters follow the same footprint

    Being "scared" and being a coward are two different things. If they were cowards, they wouldn't get into the ring. Tyson said he was scared before every fight.

    Scared of the fear of losing, being knocked out, embarrassed etc

    Not of the individual

    I highly doubt most anything you post here. They fought one another, that's the point.

    Is Danny Garcia relevant now? I mean he lost to both Thurman and Porter. He's an average fighter, I'd expect quite a few of the up and coming Welterweights to beat him.

    And Thurman is not an active fighter, he's been out for 18 months!

    They are in it for the dough, just the reality of it

    A lot of it is politics from there teams rather than the boxers themselves

    This.

    Arum has been BEGGING Spence/Haymon to call their bluff. Arum knows that neither Crawford nor Spence are Pac/Floyd type superstars no matter what they do, so it's not really a fight that deserves marinating.
