Swanson lost to Edgar for a second time, and the book on his title contention days seems to be closing with each passing fight.
While Swanson had his moments in their three-round rematch on Saturday night but appeared listless and ineffective for the most part in allowing Edgar to set the pace as he pleases.
Swanson seems content on riding out his career in the best fights available to him, so taking the Edgar rematch was a no-brainer, even if it meant certain defeat.
If Swanson plans to continue fighting, a matchup against Chas Skelly or someone outside of the top 10. Swanson deserves a chance to build his confidence if he seriously has designs of staying in the title contender conversation.
