    Why Thurman? Why not another up and coming contender like Boots? Call out Boots, make him look like a scrub if he doesn’t fight you. Have some canines man, have some self respect. If you know you have too much for someone on the slide then don’t fight him, fight someone who you don’t know you have too much for. What is this???? And let me guess, all these Haymon aligned fighters have to go to the U.K. and fight on dayzin right?
    That’s a bit harsh, literally, no one is calling out Jaron Ennis and for a good bloody reason too!!

      Thurman is the fighter that every up and coming WW wants a crack at, and for good reason. What smart fighter wouldn't go after a high-profile, American former unified champion with only one loss (to a legend) who insiders know just doesn't have his heart in the game anymore? Sure, calling out Boots Ennis would ballsy as hell, but who takes a fight they are most likely going to lose before they've made any money in the game? Nobody smart. Thurman isn't a walkover for anyone, but its a winnable fight more than worth the risk for Benn and he'll get a ton of cred if he wins it impressively.
      And, with an Ennis fight that he is most likely to lose, if he pulls off the upset, then it becomes ' well, Ennis hasn't done anything '. If he gets the upset against Thurman, at least he's beating a proven fighter with some stature.

        He has mentioned Avanesyan. He's made it quite clear hes not fighting him. What's so hard to understand about that. And Ennis hasn't mentioned Benn.

          Been is a prospect that hasn't beaten anyone to date , he should not be considering anything like a world title shot or the like .This is where he and his ridiculous promoter Eddie Hearn fall short of fans who know this is just a simply con!

            I don’t care about him moving forward backward side to side parallel in and out or none of that…I want to see Ennis and Benn fight and I want Hearn to stop calling out has beens and never was’ and make the fight or send Benn to pbc where all the real welterweights are. Sooner or later Benn is going to have to leave Britain and the comfort of fighting no hopers on dayzin and make a move otherwise keep being the Brian Nielsen of the welterweights

              You actually come across in this post as though you secretly like Benn and want him to come and join your team to play. Relax. I'm only saying, that if your Jaron Ennis your not interested in Benn. I can understand that. He's a mandatory now. He wants his shot lol.

                Thurman catches him with a left hook as he’s moving backwards

                Thurman can really bang and we’ve seen Benn hurt

                  Thurman isn't afraid of Benn. These English fighters have nice records until they come to America and try to prove themselves. I mean, AJ was the next big thing in Heavyweight boxing, and made Ruiz Jr. famous by getting KO'd in his "American Homecoming". These English boxers need to stay across the pond.

                    At this point I think Benn has too much energy for Thurman. I'd watch it but please dont make me watch him fight Barrios.
                    I think the most interesting realistic opponents for Benn would be Stanionis, Jamal James, or Abel Ramos. But Benn has too much push behind him for those to be made.
