I don't know why the author didn't mention Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman.  Both have belts at 147 lbs. Both are punchers, undefeated, and young.  However, with both being black and almost unknown to the general public, Manny would have to fight them on Showtime or HBO which means no PPV money. Manny, rightfully so, considers himself as a PPV fighter.  It's sad but promoters are warily of putting "stars" in with black fighters without a huge following because blacks don't buy PPV fights in the same manner as Hispanics/Mexicans, Asians, or whites.  Notice how Mayweather took a tough fight against a Hispanic instead of beating up on Bradley after he beat Manny?  Mayweather won't fight Porter or Thurman because they don't bring in enough cash via PPV.
