  • Looked up Santillan and he has been inactive, and stopped being a NABO WBO welterweight champion (vacated). Looking at the WBO at 147, I find it hard to understand why Jessie Vargas stays at #2. He said he was going to be up at 154 awhile ago. He had 2 draws in 2018, and defeated ancient Humberto Soto over 147. I figure Jessie Vargas should start going after the vacant WBO 154 lbs belt (so the WBO stops ranking him #2 at 147), unless Vargas really is after the WBO belt at 147. Crawford will be looking for opponents in 2020 (considering he beats his mandatory, which most people expect he will). Taras Shelestyuk, and Giovani Santillan are other guys who can try to get themselves into the top 10 in the WBO in the first half of 2020, time is ticking. I don’t see Segey Lipinets or Danny Garcia challenging Crawford either, so it is up for the guys from #5 to #12 in the WBO to go after a title fight with Crawford.
