I know Keith just returned and looked a bit rusty and unpromising in certain spots of the fight, but he's still the WBA champ and in line to get his WBC belt after the Porter/Ugas fight, supposedly. 

 

At this point, it looks as though Keith needs another fight or two under his belt before he's back in top form....who could it be next? If Porter beats Ugas, I'm sure he'd want another lucrative defense, though we all know Shawn will pretty much fight anybody. If Ugas wins, he may want a defense and so on....so where does that leave Keith?

 

1. Devon Alexander

2. Andre Berto

3. Kell Brook (Keith mentioned this recently)

4. Jessie Vargas (I believe this one was in the talks last year, but don't quote me). 

5. Pacquiao 

6. Lamont Peterson (should he get by Lipinets). 

7. Jeff Horn

Jeff Horn. He "beat" Pacquiao. I like Peterson match though.

Hey, if that's his way of getting Manny's attention, then he should go for it!

 

These WWs need to fight juuuust a bit more often and have some common opponents, that way most of these fights can get talked up and actually signed for once. We've been getting the fights we want, but it seems to take a year or two to get them going.

1. Can happen and would be great for both to grab some believers back in their fan base.

2. Won't happen, they're friends

3. Kell needs to move to 54 or 60, that weight cut is hurting him in fights. Good for Keith bad for Kell.

4. They did have breif negotiations but fell threw. I like this fight and favor Vargas to make it an active night.

5. Keith will let his hands go to his advantage or disadvantage in this one. I'm all for it.

6. I'd rather see Keith fight Omar Figueroa or someone from UFC

7. Keef would jab n move all night. Staying away from holds, I'm sure there's an unknown in Europe with a steller record that whats the bright lights challenge nfor some respect.

If Keith fights Jeff Horn I'm done with him. You want a stay busy fight without taking a risk, fight Broner

I agree--Broner has a better beard than Thurman but would not fight like he has a better beard...

I'll watch it as usual, but now AB is a journeyman. He hasn't been serious about boxing in a long time, if ever.

Who was the last big time opponent that he beat? Malignaggi was faded and he barely beat him. AB loses all of his big fights. Thurman won't lose to AB, when they fight.
