  • Good Interview! I’ve always liked Manny as a trainer and totally like seeing him work a corner! If the Spence-Crawford fight gets made, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a rematch thus the titles being held up yet again?! With that being said if Virgil doesn’t outgrow the division, why not a huge fight against Conor Benn??!! I don’t see Ortiz fighting Crawford or Spence until he’s @54….
