Jessie went to super welterweight.
Danny is a big name still but probably comes up short against any of the top guys at this stage. Spence looked bigger than Danny last night. I wonder what the weight differential was.
Don’t see him beating Manny, Crawford or Porter. Spence fight wasn’t close enough for a rematch. If I was on Danny’s team I’d push for a Thurman fight. The Thurman who fought Manny was beatable and could get him in the mix for another big payday. He will lose against top guys but it’s another payday before retirement. I think he has a solid shot against Thurman.
I know he’s old but if Danny could somehow boil down to 140, he’d be more successful assuming he could make the weight and still have stamina and power. Probably not going to happen (unless he can get ahold of Canelo’s nutritionist/pharmacist) so I’m going with the Thurman fight. If it’s close and entertaining they could milk it for a trilogy. Either way he’s not in the discussion for top four anymore. Still too good and popular to retire. His face looked bad but he was never in real trouble last night against the top one or two WWs on the planet.
I think there are still plenty of fights out there for Danny to get. He’s only ever lost to the top guys in the division, and in all he was competitive. 2/3 were razor thin.
As I see it, he still has enough cache to attract some dates as an A side looking to re-establish himself as a title contender against other guys in the same boat. I’m thinking guys like Lipinets or Mikey or even someone like Mo Hooker.
He can also be that guy who provides that last challenge to a an up and coming guy reaching for the brass ring. Someone like a Vergil Ortiz or Jaron Ennis or Abdu.
I can still see him being able to put himself in the running for a Pacquiao fight or another big fight in 2 or 3 fights, provided he re-establishes himself.
Either way, I think he still has a lot to offer, and welter is so damned deep. He’s not shot or diminished or the victim of savage beatings. Just lost to better fighters.
He has a few good fights left. Porter rematch, Pac-Man, Crawford.
There’s only one logical fight for Danny... Khan rematch and then retire
Spence is a huge welter and moves around the ring really well. In hindsight he was a bad match-up for Danny who seems quite small for the weight.
Danny will do fine against other welters or other 140 pounders moving up.
Spence looks unbeatable at welter for now.. I thought Crawford would take him but his size and skill is going to be too much for most of the division.
Excuse me getting KO'd by Pac are you kidding who got a better jaw? I could see Danny blasting Pac like Marquez did.
Pac? have you watched him the last 3-4 years? power is not there any more
Garcia is a Phillyrican version of Bron Bron (Broner) the problem of throwing less than 8 punches a round. Shyt he did a Lomachenko yesterday. Still can't believe the out put the kid gave in the fight, goodness.
Would be a good fight for Josh Taylor to take if he moves up to 147.
He should retire! He was never that good and he was lucky to get as far as he did! He had a good chin and some heart but his punching power and skills were very overrated!
This would mean more if he was fighting other legit fighter’s between the top guys in the division.
But yea. Danny is a name, he can get himself a title shot again easily. He’ll likely rebuild again fighting some no hoper’s, and he’ll be right back.
This is boxing we are talking about. He is still marketable, has a fan base, is a name fighter, and is totally beatable. Boxing loves guys like that. Zab judah got big money fight after big money fight for the same reasons. Danny can still make a fortune, and I'm sure he will.
Danny vs Mikey is a fight I would like to see
Sure, his wins aren’t spectacular, but it should be noted he only has very competitive losses to the division’s elite. He’s pretty much interchangeable with Porter who he also fought on basically even terms. There’a a razor thin margin there.
