Re: Spence activates rematch clause.
I think Loser activate the rematch. Winner gets to pick the weight. I believe crawford said 154 as he feels he owes spence for giving him his shot so its only fair. I believe spence was supposed to be one of the 3 fights on the PBC contract at a higher weight. Crawford threw a wrench into those plans. Now Canelo fights a charlo. Then there was an empty space. Crawfords not a PBC fighter so Canelo can't really mention his name. (he already said he would only fight crawford at 168 prior to trying to downgrade him recently by saying spence was the only good fighter on his record). So canelo beats charlo and hopes spence avenges his loss at '54 so they can write off the drubbing as being weight drained. So canelo fights him and then maybe benavidez.

When the dust settles. People will wonder how great crawford could have been if not for bob arum stalling out his career... after trying to scrape some names together for the remainder to put a stamp on his legacy. I feel like spence will be a tragedy, wind up blind in one eye or something and people will be talking about him and when he should have stopped... Canelo will be have a floyd like groupies that will paint him as the best ever then wince every time someone mentions Bivol.
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.
