  • it’s a fight. Porter isn’t a huge puncher. Stopping Erik Bone, and getting TKOs over 33 ½ yr old Malignaggi and 33 ½ yr old Andre Berto doesn’t make you a huge puncher in your last 14 fights. Beating once beaten Devon Alexander was Porter’s claim to fame in late 2013. But Alexander went 2-4-1 in his next 7 after that fight. To me, Crawford should fight . Kudratillo Abdukakhorov next. That is Spence’s mandatory, and that guy is #4 in the WBC. The winner of Spence and Porter would feel obliged to fight Crawford if he took care of . Kudratillo Abdukakhorov. I am not seeing Egidijus Kavaliauskas as a fight for Crawford that leads to him fighting Spence or Porter. Egidijus Kavaliauskas could fight Jessie Vargas for the vacant WBO title if the WBO is so intent on making sure he fights for the title in 2019. Kavaliauskas does not crack the top 5 by the WBC and IBF.

  • The losers of these two fights will be Porter and Direlle. These won’t even be close fights!!

  • Spence will stop Porter in 11, setting up a match with either Pacman or Crawford.

    Benavides will knock out Dirrell in 7.

    • Spence will stop Porter more like the 7th round Jon…The big money fight would be Spence and Crawford and I think Spence comes out the winner of a close fight thus justifying a big money rematch.

      • How dare anyone to disagree with me on this one…My left will put you in the hospital and i’m afraid of the right one myself….

    • It’ll be Pacman if he accepts. They want no part of Crawford. They would fight Danny Garcia before that Bud
