Ridiculous. Spence is a titleholder.and regarded by just about everyone as the top welter in the world. He has done far better than Thurman when they have had common opponents, and Keith honestly hasn't done shyt for two years... except duck Errol Spence, go on vacation, and nearly get ko'd by bums. Spence has beaten the Brook, who beat the best name on Thurman's resume.Spence hasn't earned a shot at Keith Thurman. Or Pacquiao. He was calling for a fight with the ATG Manny Pacquiao, but what sense did that fight make lol? Why him over the rest of the WWs? He's only beaten a bunch of Contenders, Brook, and Garcia. Only won one belt. Just had his first title defense . He's the most unproven of all top WWs and had a title defense against a damn Lighweight. Him fighting Thurman next would be a shortcut and easy road to the lineal champ. How is he going to fight Thurman without any interest or common opponent?
People don't want to see him fight Thurman, they just want to see him fight because he stops people.
You can't argue against the business and logical side of prizefighting. Thurman v Spence makes zero sense at this point.
Thurman v Pacman, Spence v Porter, and Garcia v Garcia are far from second rate fights. They are all in their prime besides Pacman . It's as high level as you can get in the division. They are necessary in order to see who is the best.
This isn't 2017 and Keith ain't the man no more. Doesn't talk like a fighter, doesn't scrap like one anymore, and was already physically fragile to begin with. He's gonna have to prove himself all over again, and instead he's sitting around like he'd been on top for 10 years like Floyd or something. Dude ain't hungry any more.
And you're talking like these guys are 25 years old or something. All of them are pushing 30 and I don't want to see the fight when they're past it. Hell, Thurman probably already is.
He's really just a stepping stone until we can get Spence/Crawford, tbh. No one is feeling Keith like that anymore. All the buzz is coming from Manny Pacquiao. Keith killed his own hype by being a punk bytch.
