Ok, great. Now we will finally see Crawford against someone who can fight, even if he has a glass jaw.

The only good opponents for TC would be Spence at 147, Hurd at 154 and Canelo/GGG/Jacobs at 160...

Bud has a ton of great fights at 147.
Porter, Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia and Thurman.

All under the man that Arum says doesn't exist :)

Well, it's a business, and Arum pays him well probably, maybe he can get out later after his contract to pursue legacy if he wants.

After breaking Khan's chin, I think Arum will let him fight the WBO #1 contender Kavaliauskas, especially they're both in TR... Next would be to move up at 154 and fight Munguia...

Easy path under TR... If he chose not to extend his TR contract and go to PBC, his path to a 147-pound title would be more challenging vs. Thurman, Porter or Spence...

Even Khan, Provo, Algieri or Rios can win a 147-pound title if they fought Horn before Crawford did...

Crawford by KO! Khan is over the Hill, and has been knocked down and knocked-out several times in his career! Khan's got speed still, but Crawford has both Speed and TIMING (@ His peak!) 8) I actually think Crawfords team did a great job of choosing this fight to make him look even better. But if Crawford is really as tough, he needs to be tested against Spence, Mikey / Danny Garcia & other powerful guys in his division and the 147 lbs (Porter, Thurman) or even fight GGG at a catchweight..

Well, looks like Pacman will get to those guys first, if he beats Broner, which he is expected too. But you never know, he might get old overnight, which is why Pacman's fights will be intriguing. He will now join Floyd where viewers will be waiting if he goes down.

Not a good fight for Crawford because it is way too easy. Crawford via TKO.

No other fight possible for Crawford since Manny left Arum?

Well, he's fighting Khan who is not signed with Arum .
Arum let Loma fight Linares of GBP.

Bud certainly is not going up to 154 as someone suggested here already. The hell about that Canelo or GGG fight. :shock:

If Bud beats Khan, where else does he go? Fight bums ?
If Mikey loses to Spence, he will still be a huge fight for Bud.
Even at catchweight 144-145.

Pac wants no part of Bud. Please. Pac is only after Floyd. That's why he signed with Haymon.
No way Pac fights Porter either. Porte gave him hell in sparring for the Cotto fight . Porter beat the snot out of Pac after Pac came down Baguio b/c he was boink ing Krista Ranillo every night.

I wouldn't say it will be an easy fight.
Khan gives people problems before he gets KO'd ( outside of his first KO loss ).

sabi nga ni palulie malignaggi sobrang mahirap manalo ng isang round kay amir khan.
dahil mabilis at makamay. ang round na ikinatalo lang ni amir ay iyong mga rounds kung saan sya na KD at na KO.
