    The welterweight division isn't that deep as people think though.
    Its deep for PBC. Not for everyone else. That's why everyone else is having to try to match ups from left field.

      Maybe not. So who is Taylor fighting? Who is Lopez fighting?
      No idea but the rumor comes of Teo who is certifiable so I assume it's bull****.

          They don't want Avanesyan. That's been made clear. Ramirez is a bigger fight. They won't get Thurman he, won't want Benn, and PBC won't let him fight on DAZN.

            I'm not sure what needs to be explained.

              Why would Thurman fight on DAZN? The A sides don't cross the street for B sides.

                That's what I thought at first. But Taylors team have been suggesting he can fight at 140 next, as he came back to the gym in better condition than he started his last camp. And I can't see him fighting at 147 until its his WBO mandatory shot, which wont be until spring next year. Taylor won't get up and motivated for an average non title fight. So a Lopez fight makes sense, especially as their both coming off poor performances. And it ticks the boxes for Top Rank. Yes, Teo talks nonsense and I won't believe it until from a stronger source. But it actually makes sense for all parties, so I think there could be something in this. But it's just my opinion.

                  How is Ramirez not a big name? He's a regular on ESPN. He sells out his local arena and has a strong fan fanbase. He draws much the same fans as Mikey Garcia, Vergil Ortiz Jr, Bam Rodriguez etc. He's a former unified world champion who has only lost in an undisputed fight to Josh Taylor who is well known in the UK and therefore Ramirez is heard of in the UK. He's coming off a good win over Jose Pedraza, who's a former 2 weight world champion. If your meaning something other than that, then there is something to explain.

                    That's exactly the point. That's what why I said they won't get Thurman.

                      Having a big name has never been part of the criteria to get a Conor Benn fight. Lol pretending someone needs a name to fight him and only citing a fight that hasn't happened is proof of that.
