Re: What should Crawford’s next move be?
Pacs not gonna fight Crawford, so as much as i hate the though of him fighting a lightweight, I'd say he needs to go after Mikey (if mikey will do business with TR) . He has to make a comparison to the other top dogs in the division. So unless thurmans supposed hand injury clears up, or he wants to be in a dogfight with porter at this point in his career. Mikey's probably the easiest (still on the pound for pound list and the weights probably not his best division). if he can beat mikey more convincingly than spence (don't know if he can KO Mikey but either more aggressively or a couple of flash knockdowns as mikeys been known to be caught cold early on.) He becomes the more noticeable elephant in the room to the more casual fan.
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
