Crawford - Spence is the one I want to see.

 

  A lot of people seem to think Spence would be trouble for Bud, but I'll take Crawford all day in that matchup.  I honestly think Porter would give Crawford more trouble than Spence.  "Styles make fights" and all that.

Spence was really “stressed” last night.  He’ll get the Garcia/Porter winner WAY before Crawford will

The blood on the camera lens around the 1-minute mark makes it that much better.

Tip my hat to Saucedo for surviving that round. :thumbs

Fury is the most skilled boxer of the super heavyweights.  Wilder would have his hands full, especially if Fury showed up in shape.

 

Any combination of those top 3 guys in the division would be an interesting matchup.

 

Shut up and just sign.

I don't know if Kovalev comes back from this.

 

 

Surprised he got up after that second knockdown. I would say his nose was broken by that right hand.

Interesting story behind this. Apparently, they decided to lower his purse money before the fight, so he did this in protest.

Boxing pretty much tanked after all their major fights were put on pay per view which eliminated their ability to grow new fans from casual observers.  It doesn't surprise me that HBO is getting out.

This looks like it should be competitive but it won’t be.  Sadly for Bud, fights like these will be the norm for a long time.  The true welterweight superfight, Crawford/Spence, probably doesn’t see the light during these fighters elite time(the next two years).  With Bud’s contract with Abrum and ESPN he could easily be an afterthought for the other top fighters in the class  who are signed with promoters who are tied to SHOWTIME.  Those guys will match up so much easier with each other due to this.  Add in the fact that Abrum burned some bridges with some of these promotion groups(I know Spence’s group is one with Al Haymon) won’t help matters.

 

Now add in the fact the Mikey Garcia, unified and undefeated stud at lightweight wants to fight Spence.  He’s gonna fight Richard Commey next, but I think this fight happens far before Crawford gets his shot at Spence.  The other odd twist that could effect this Spence/Crawford thing is Vasyl Lomachenko.  Loma will destroy his next match in December to unify his half of the lightweight world and he wants Garcia.  Garcia once was a Top Rank/ESPN guy.  A bitter release from them took two years, but odds are that this fight has a better(yet far fetched) chance of happening before Spence and Crawford have a go at it.

 

it is sad the politics that screw fans of seeing great fights.

 

And GGG still win the fight

This has been the case since the 90's. All the pay-per-view s#!t and the different governing bodies deciding who is, and who isn't worthy of a title shot has really screwed the sport, and the fans out of the best fights.

He didn't even break a sweat.

 

Very nice left jab followed by that short straight right hand. :thumbs

Bump this with a couple hours until the fight tonight.

 

plenty of drama the last few days between the two camps.  Probably was better drama than the actual bout tonight.  Bud needs a big fight.

 

Can see this playing out like The Gambia fight with a a round or two quicker finish or like the Postal fight in which Postal saw he couldn’t touch Crawford so danced around all night avoiding the KO

Bud starting to get going in the third.  4th round could have evened the score at 2 rounds apiece after a nice body shot caught Crawford

Coffee is for closers.

 

Benivadez c$%ked off once to much and the fight was over

I'm surprised he stood in front of Crawford with his hands down through most of that fight.
