“As the opponent pool evaporates, Crawford, 35-0 (26), is left waiting for junior-welterweights like Josh Taylor, Jose Ramirez, and Regis Prograis to move up. That could be an exercise in Kafkaesque absurdity. Given the kind of living the trio could make fighting each other, it could take years for them to risk a beating from Crawford. And years are not something a thirty-two-year-old without a signature win has to spare. For now, Crawford’s goal of becoming an undisputed champion in a second division is stalled. Because he can fight only who is available, he will suffer for challenges.”
