    Um, both Bob and Bud confirmed that the fight was deep into negotiations and almost finalized, but they couldn't get approval for crowd attendance.

    Crawford stops Pacquiao at this point. Crawford has the best killer instinct in the game, and if he hurts Pacquiao, he's going to finish him.

    Thurman was a young undefeated natural Welterweight, up until he met Pacman

    The risk is pretty high and it would add next to nothing to his legacy, even for all Crawford's accolades. Highly doubtful he takes it over the many options available to him otherwise - and if he does, his advisers will need to all be fired in a massive house-cleaning once the dust settles, if he's continuing on past that.

    I think pac can beat him to be honest. Pac at this age still hasnt declined that much in my eyes and thats crazy. But he still has speed and power and delivers it at angles that crawford has never seen before. Im not a big fan of crawford but pacs win over a prime keith thurman showed me hes still got enough in the tank and could pull off a win against crawford.

    Can/could, yeah - we are talking about Pacquiao, after all, and there hasn't been a major preciptious decline in any of his recent fights (more of a gradual curve over the last several years) - but it wouldn't be smart for anyone to put money on him.

    I agree, but I think it's a 60/40 fight in favor of Crawford. Pac will be 42 and coming off a long lay off.

    Generously I’d give him a 20% chance and that’s primarily out of respect.

    Agreed this is a far better match up for him.

    OG Bob might decide throw Terry to the wolves for his lack of loyalty after everything he's done for him. He's literally lost millions of dollars due to Terry's refusal to try and develop a personality and some charisma in order that he can sell himself and lend his fairy godfather a helping hand to promote his fights. OG Bob could very easily just decide to feed him to Manny by way of punishment.

    Bud's opposition at ww was well below the level of Pac's.
