    Why move up and fight nobodies?
    154 is bereft of star power
    Spence vs Thurman, Crawford and Pacquiao are big fights

    Dude cmon Mikey wasn’t a cherry pick... he was an entire cherry tree that fell over , literally in $pences own backyard!

    I don’t blame him one bit for harvesting the low hanging fruit that called him out after all it fell over on his property!

    Spence should fight Jermell Charlo. Such a fight could be easily made since they are PBC boxers.

    I'd sooner see Mayweather vs. Spence than Pacquiao vs. Spence.

    We’re not playing this game
    No one asked for Mikey to move up
    That was a dumb move and it cost Mikey his brain matter

    Because the regular welter weight fighters ducking him. Smaller guys are calling him out. Bigger pay day as well.

    its not a dumb move he tried to dare to be great.... fighters in past have done that

    No one is asking spence to move up and fight nobodies we asking him to do the same

    He can move up fight canelo/golovkin/Jacobs/Andrade

    LOL lets see how bossy he is then

    No he wont because he wants to fight little guys

    This is a case where a fighter just beat the guy he was rooting for and now wants him to move up and loose. Looking forward to Spense fighting other Welters. I hope mikey can move down to 135 where he should be.

    Idk it could be anything all I know is if he gets the fights at 147 then there is no reason to move up he's a natural 154 not a 160 pounder. If he can get the Pac or porter fight next. Then by all means stay in the division as long as you get the fights that make sense.however if he is gonna play the duck card "no one wants to fight me excuse " I don't roll with that up . Move up

    Hes in one of the hottest divisions in boxing but he should leave it because his division doesn't want to fight him? Typical fan mentality.

    Hes doing exactly what he should be doing... making himself the name at the weight and slowly will own the division until Porter Thurman and Crawford have to fight him.

    Moving up into the generic 154 division would be stupid.

    Spence doesn't want to fight bud in his own weight class he is more reluctant

    do you agree errol is not a natural 147iber? he is way big for that weight class he is a weight bully this is a fact

    Why not go to 160 fight canelo/ggg/Andrade/Jacobs/saunders

    lets see how bad he is then

    What do you mean ? Look it the welters are gonna fight him it makes sense to stat in the division but what happens if they dont want to fight you ? You're gonna waste your prime years sitting in a division were no one fights you then some guy comes beats you and your fans cry " they waited for him to get old " no you move up and use your prime while you can
