On shifting Vergil Ortiz ahead and in search of his subsequent step up in opposition
“I imagine the simplest technique to go could be the course with Prime Rank. Golden Boy and Prime Rank do work collectively and have achieved plenty of fights collectively, particularly the final 12 months, they did fairly a couple of fights collectively and I feel it’s most likely the simplest means.
“I’m not gonna say we should always go straight into Terence Crawford subsequent but it surely’s an enormous chance. However Prime Rank additionally has a couple of different welterweights that may be a good suggestion earlier than battle Crawford. ‘Trigger I feel Crawford will most likely go in the direction of the top of the 12 months so by then we would have one or two fights extra. We don’t need to hold Vergil sitting for the rest of the 12 months.
“After this battle I feel he ought to do two fights — he hasn’t been very energetic so I need to hold him busy. I feel one or two extra earlier than something huge…I want to see him not less than another time earlier than something big, and I feel the large battle might be Terence Crawford.
“PBC’s fighters are nice, unbelievable fighters, but it surely’s a bit harder. You don’t see that taking place that always. I feel Crawford will most likely be the simplest battle to make.”
On Jose Ramirez’s upcoming unification with Josh Taylor
“I do know that turning into undisputed is his dream and he’ll make historical past, he’ll be the primary Mexican-American to perform that so that may positively be the most important.”
On if there’s any information on Mikey Garcia’s subsequent battle
“There was plenty of rumors however nonetheless nothing signed, nothing official, no date, no nothing. As quickly as one thing is finalized I’m certain Mikey will tell us as a result of as of proper now Mikey’s coaching, Mikey’s misplaced plenty of weight already. He’s sparring, he’s preparing. However nothing’s official but and in boxing something may occur. We may find yourself preventing anyone else, Pacquiao may find yourself preventing anyone else — we don’t know. However the way in which it seems to be, from what I learn, you learn, all people’s studying, it seems to be just like the course Pacquiao’s going however till it’s signed and contracts are signed and the whole lot’s able to go, we’ll be capable of speak a bit bit extra.
“However proper now he’s coaching. I do know that he needs to battle in Might or June and if it’s in opposition to Pacquiao or not, he’ll be preventing. So if it’s not Pacquiao he’ll battle another person and it is going to be someday in late Might or June.”
