    Who lands the left hook first? Good fight if it happens. That's the kind of fight Danny needs to make now.

    Why not later this year? The division needs these kind of fights to make these guys into stars. Fighting Berto does nothing at this stage.

    Probably to give Thurman an interim fight.

    Again, why? Both are plenty young enough that a loss won't set them back at all.

    I'm not sure. I don't think there's anyone else they can put him against right now that builds him up even more before a fight with Garcia.

    Is Thurman-Garcia a fight that needs building? It won't be a PPV, so they may as well fight in November or somewhere around there.

    This is what Big Dan said about this fight - "I'll believe it when I see it"

    I hope it's not a PPV but who knows. If they want it to be a PPV, then yeah I think they have to build it up some. But seeing as how there really aren't any of those fights available for Keith right now, that's not really viable. Luckily Showtime/CBS isn't HBO and they aren't rushing to put everything on PPV anyway.

    Precisely. Great fight but great fights are touted way more than they're made.

    Way too far and nothing even close to set to get excited for this at all.

    All bs until real contracts are signed. Sounds like press release to help Danny's sinking rep.

    This can easily be made for this year. I know Thurman is for it. Garcia has no excuses, given his last 2 fights were against at best, washed up fighters.

    Alvarez struggling with a smaller, inferior fighter with jet lag and 5 days notice.

    Stevenson will end him

    Why? Last I heard, Thurman said he wanted to fight ASAP.
