  • and why can’t Crawford take care of #11 WBO, Kudratillo Abdukahorov, in 2019? That way, when Spence beats Porter, and if Crawford beats Kudratillo Abdukahorov, nothing is standing in the way of Crawford vs Spence in the 1st half of 2020. Kudratillo Abdukahorov is Spence’s mandatory, that he’ll never fight. Egidijus Kavaliauskas is probably a step behind Kudratillo Abdukahorov, yet Crawford will probably take that easier fight,the Kavaliauskas fight, the same way Spence is taking the easy fight with Porter. At least, Porter is an easy fight for Spence, but not for that many other guys. Porter just made himself look bad by trying to pretend he was some kind of cutesy boxer mover vs Ugas, and he didn’t really beat Ugas. How is Porter going to really beat Spence? Unless Spence breaks a hand in the fight, or gets cut really bad, can’t see Porter upsetting the set up of Crawford vs Spence.
