    Well if Crawford is to become undisputed at light middle, he’ll be 40, given his exhaustive, “activity” schedule!

    I could see Fundora putting a beat down on Crawford too. Especially since he got his confidence back. He went into that Zoo fight 50% of his true self. When has Crawford fought someone bigger than him?

    Tszyu doesn't have a rematch clause.

    It was reported there was one

    'Amid some confusion over whether there was a rematch clause, Tszyu’s promoter, George Rose of No Limit Boxing, confirmed his fighter had the option to run it back against the 6’6” southpaw.

    “He [Fundora’s promoter Sampson Lewkowicz] knows there’s a rematch clause there,” Rose told reporters.

    “If we want to take it, we’ll take it. I’d love to see Tim take that and win them belts straight back.

    “I’m happy for a rematch to happen next and good luck trying to get out of it.”

    But this is the latest

    Either way, it's the right and honorable thing to do. When many others would've refused to do so at such late notice Tszyu took on an extremely awkward 6' 5½'' southpaw with an 80'' reach on late notice after spending almost an entire camp training for Thurman and he fought on valiantly for 10 rounds with his face a mask of blood and his vision impaired after suffering a terrible cut very early into the fight from an accidental elbow. This is actually a deserved rematch

    Crawford should be on board with giving Tsyzu a chance to win his belts back and then fighting him in Australia, but he has clearly gotten some bad advice since the Spence fight and I don't expect him to do the smart thing here.

    He should fight either Thurman, Boots, or Spence next, not Fundora.

    I was hoping for the Tszyu rematch. Being that Tszyu received that terrible cut so early in the fight. And he took the fight on short notice. Do right by the man and give him an immediate rematch. As my boy CJ would say, that's bull feces!!!!

    Fundora’s team have seemingly agreed to a rematch.

    If they go ahead with it then regardless of the result Fundora will have earned a massive amount of respect for honouring his agreement.

    I just think that Crawford should get the winner of the rematch. That's only fair. I mean, up until 12 days before the fight Tszyu was thinking he was fighting an inactive ex champ on the down side of his career, in a non title bout, then like that he's fighting a 6'6 southpaw in a title match. Let him get first dibs on that belt.

    Does anyone think Fundora has the remotest chance to win this?

    Tszyu has a rematch clause and that is the fight that should happen next. Tim deserves it for fighting Fundora on short notice. Crawford can wait.
