    Top Rank has released "Mean machine". He is a top 10 welterweight, who should he sign with. Probably PBC if they want to take him or Eddie Hearn.

    he looked poor and was down on a fight versus a nobody from canada.
    he got the come from behind from out of no where knock out in a fight he was the heavy favourite. he's looked bad for the last 3 years. he might be top 10 boxrec but it goes to show how flawed the rating system can be

    Golden Boy might want to get one of Crawford's best wins to build up Ortiz's case for a fight.

    This nobody was not bad boxer.
    Why? He lost only vs Crawford who is ranked higher than #10 and therefore ranking looks fair.

    Ofc he doesn't looks top 5 material and better now had quit boxing.

    Actually both you and @pepsiclassic are right.
    He is a really good boxer but he has also looked really bad in recent years. My money is on Egidijus being hard to work with and I wonder if he lacks the dedication.

    I lurked in rankings from boxrec, machine does have almost 10X lesser points than Crawford so all from this point looks pretty normal.

    His big mistake was signing with Top Rank.

    Hopefully he still has time to rejuvenate his career.

    Eddie Urn should set up Mean Machine vs Conor Benn

    Apparently he’s been turning down fights or requesting million dollars paydays according to the people at Top Rank

    Sounds like he should join PBC and add to their stack of welterweights to fight their top dogs, could always be used to test Ennis or even better, Stanionis in a Lithuanian showdown (who'd have thought there'd ever be two top Lithuanian fighters in the same division?).

    Of course.
    And not know why he get fight vs Crawford.
    He might had defeated Crawford only if he had stopped him and he looks that was #8 in boxrec then.
    No 0 in fight record, not proper country and all this happens.

    Boxing stars are needed from Mexico, U.S or U.K.

    He is on the down slope of his career. Easy decision for Arum.

    He would lose to the welters I listed and probably a few more I didn't.
