If Kavaliauskas is with top rank, why don`t they make Kavaliauskas -Ponomarev?

Too early. If Crawford doesn't get Pacquiao, he should fight Benavidez first.

kavaliauskas is probably the best that crawford can get at 147 from top rank.

Crawford was running from a skinny Postol, imagine if Kavaliaskus touches the guy, Crawford will be on bicycle running for his life
