Yep. I'm afraid Spence will wait until Bud is an old man or just avoids him and moves up to junior middleweight.
:nod: Spence already looks way too big for 147. But, I do get the feeling Spence is a guy who doesn't want to duck anybody. It's the one fight every fight fan is dying to see. It would be a giant payday for everybody involved. Hopefully Arum and Haymon can work it out.

Haymon owning 147 has been bad for the sport, imo. Thurman talks a lot of crap, but doesn't seem to want to fight anyone but Pacquiao. I suspect they all, except for Bud, will start ducking Porter.

Speaking of Porter, he has to move up to 154 soon right? That dude is a little Sherman tank.

The Porter who fought Spence looked like a completely different guy than the Porter who fought Thurman. He looks like a hungry guy who feels he has nothing to lose.

An argument could be made that Porter won that fight with Spence and likely wins a rematch. Spence was hurt bad and looked scared at the end of that fight.

He's a nightmare for anyone. He's kind of awkward, has crazy stamina, and a big heart. Spence still scares me for Bud, mainly because I think he looks like a middleweight.
I expected Spence to dominate Porter and I was way off that. I agree though. Spence is too big to stay at 147 and Bud consistently comes in just a shade under 147.
