    CRAWFORD WANTS PACMAN

    “But we’re [now] in talks want do it in the Middle East before or after Ramadan.”

    CRAWFORD WANTS PACMAN

    After beating Brook, Crawford called out Manny Pacquiao.

    He said: “I already said who I want. I want Pacquiao. I want to revisit that fight.

    “That was a fight that should’ve happened right now. But being that the pandemic happened, and they weren’t going to allow fans in the Middle East, they had to put a hold to that.

    “Everything was 95 percent done. We had the venue. The money was almost there. It wasn’t quite there. That was the only thing we were waiting on.”

    KELL OF A WAIT

    With a decision on Maloney and Franco STILL yet to be reached – Brook is like the rest of us.

    EYE EYE EYE

    Here is Franco's swollen eye which forced the fight to be halted.

    Officials are STILL trying to determine whether it was from a blow or accidental clash of heads.

    Maloney will win by technical stoppage if it is deemed a blow, but a headbutt verdict will end the fight as a technical draw.

  • Jack Figg

    PATIENTLY WAITING

    No decision has been made as of yet to declare whether it is an accidental clash of heads or a punch which caused the damage.

    In the meantime, Bud Crawford is warming up for his headliner against Brook.

    Appears Franco's right eye is badly swollen following a clash of heads in round one.
