    Well it was a mandatory, but your right. If Porter was a young fresh hungry contender, they'd have passed on that mandatory and put him in with a fellow PBC guy. How many defences has Crawford had against Haymons fighters? Answer is zero. He really needs to sign with Haymon. I don't know if there has been any approaches. Have you heard of any?
    Yes, that was basically my point.

    As regards info on any potential negotiation, I don't have those kinds of contacts haha. But unless No Pay Cut Crawford takes a cut on his guarantees, I suspect Haymon will.oass on him.

    Thanks

    They'll get to fight in the next final eliminator after that. Or step in if either Ortiz or Avanesyan bale out. Or fight for the title if it becomes vacant. Haymon will be after the eliminator status, in case the title becomes vacant, and it guarantees he has a horse in the race.

Michel Rivera only recently signed with Al Haymon, and he made it to the Top of the LW division without doing so. So I believe Crawford needs a promoter, but not necessarily a deal with Al Haymon.

    What makes it even worse is barrios just got pulled from wbc rankings for refusing to enroll in vada, so I'm really curious to their justification for this being an "eliminator".

    So a jr. welterweight gets killed by a lightweight ( not even the best one) and than he moves up to welterweight having elimination bount with the guy coming from a long layoff, who was last seen beaten by 41 old Pacquiao.

    Makes sense.
