Great job Floyd for promoting the fight and congratulations on the victory AB. The ratings were great and sold out crowd. AB fight Erol Spence, Terrance Crawford, Danny Garcia, Keith Thurman or rematch Shawn Porter.

Wow maybe it is me but why is floyd attempting to match ab with these big 147 welterweight really Thurman porter and Spence are going to come in the fight at 175 pounds or more why ab is coming up from lightweight here is a guy with 1 million viewers on a Friday build these fights do you think deloya is putting his guy in touch with ggg or someone i think people don't like ab but he is a entertainment business and he is making money
