THOUGHTS🤔 – While the Welterweight division has had the strongest quality of overall talent it’s had in maybe a couple decades, the majority of the talent were circling their own wagons early in their career in trying to bolster their own profile to better position themselves for future negotiations to big fights, a common trope when the most skilled fighters of a division are young boxers looking to make an imprint leading up to the mega match-ups.
