    Nothing against Keith. But over a year inactive? In a division such as welter with all that talent hovering around? Get better and come back and fight for it.

    I like it. Then the winner can fight either Spence or Crawford.

    I find it unusual that the WBC didn't pronounce Thurman champion emeritus, I'm glad they didn't but that is usually the way they go when one of their champions is out for a long period with injuries etc.

    Porter/ Garcia should have already been made for the interim title while Thurman was out/ wanting a tune up or 2.

    I'm intrigued to see how Danny deals with Porters pressure. I see Porter taking a decision in a messy/ ugly fight.

    I doubt it. The winner probably waits for a Thurman rematch and Thurman probably takes it.

    I hate Porter fights. Him and Bradley are two fighters I don't enjoy watching.

    Think the deal is Thurman gets immediate first option. If of course he doesn't break a nail or bruise something else before hand.

    Seriously this is a good thing. I can see Porters crash and collide style giving Garcia many problems but Garcia sharp countering opportunity will be abundant. But have no desire for a Porter v Spence oddly enough.

    I'm beginning to wonder if Thurman will just wait for the Porter/Garcia winner after a tuneup then retire. Dude claims a 6 week rehab(bone spurs) is still going. No chance in hell he is still rehabbing from bone spur removal.

    we all misunderstood the whole 'one time' nickname, ends up he meant that he will only fight one time a year

    So his plan is to have a tune up end of summer then fight the Porter/Garcia winner?

    That makes him clear from Spence from at least 18 months..

    Thurman could have been the man at 147 but has chose to hibernate..pathetic.

    He is hoping Spence will fight Crawford over this long period and he can hide away in the love triangle of Porter/Garcia..

    Porter, Garcia and Thurman are all with Haymon and Crawford is with Arum so who is Spence with?
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
