Who should Maurice Hooker fight next?

After Hooker lost his title he looked all set for a fight with Regis Prograis but due to issues with what weight the fight would be held at the fight was called off.

The first name I think he could fight is Mikey Garcia. I know Garcia is looking for a bigger fight butif hes unable to get the Pacquiao fight then this would be the next biggest fight for him on Dazn and also get him another solid win on his resume. This would however be an expensive fight to put on and I doubt Dazn will cough up the cash for this.

Josesito Lopez is coming off two decent performances and would be a good start for Hooker in the welterweight division. He has name value but is unlikely to ask for millions and millions.

Sebastian Formella is the IBO champion and undefeated in 22 fights. Snatching up an IBO belt wouldn’t be the worse start for him at 147. I think this fight would be cheap as well considering Formella hasn’t fought many good fighters and isn’t well known.

The last one is Ray Robinson who while not winning his last 3 has fought very good competition. His draws are controversial and this would be a good test for Hooker at 147. He also likely wouldn’t ask for to much money.
