    He has been in hibernation for a while, with talks of retirement and then comes back against nondescript opponents and now he is fighting for a "belt".

    Why not just buy one and be over with it.

    In the meantime Maidana is enjoying a well deserved retirement.

    Who would have thought!!

      I'm hoping he's on Canelo's Cinco De Mayo card after he wins this title

          And even if he wins this next fight he would still only get the WBA "regular" belt. Keith Thurman is the real WBA champion.
          damn that's harsh the man had given it his all he deserves some accolades. He wins this belt he's a world champ, yeah regular title or not the man earned it. War Lucas!

            Perhaps Crawford and Matthysse will finally meet in the ring at 147. (There's not a lot of choices for them.)

            HBO wanted Matthysse vs Crawford a year or so ago. Arum angrily objected, and HBO reluctantly settled for two unmarketable foreign fighters battling it out, Postol vs Matthysse.

              Really????? Why do we keep talking about the man who struggled with Not So Super Judah as if he isn't washed up
