:lol: Seems like Mikey's PPV went to his head. The guy got booed in his own hometown, and his Showtime ratings fall under Broner's. He didn't bring anywhere near 400k buys on his own.

I think Crawford broke ratings for his fight with Benavidez at least.

Let's be clear, Crawford isn't going to be a draw at any point now. He's like Andre Ward in this regard, but I really don't think Spence Jr. is either. This fight will probably do solid numbers, though. I can see something in the 200-300K region. The purse split should be 50-50. It's a fair split.

Crawford had to carry two PPVs with Postol and Khan. Spence Jr. had a PPV with the already popular and well-follow Mikey Garcia and thinks he's now some PPV sensation? That's ridiculous.

Spence would take the fight but makes no sense for Al Haymon to match him up with Crawford when he can let him fight Porter, Thurman and Danny Garcia who are all under the same promotion, Arum is desperate to make the fight now because he has no WW's left

Okay, but who wins Spence or Crawford?

I really have no idea. Didn't see Crawford v Khan. I was a little disappointed that Spence went 12 rounds with Mikey it looked like he could have gotten a TKO if he wanted it in the mid to late rounds.

I don't know anymore. They've both had their terrible moments. After the Benavidez fight, I was thinking Spence Jr. After the Mikey fight, I'm back to thinking Crawford.

By the way, I was right that Khan was injured going into the Crawford fight. It was his elbow like his trainer was saying.

I can't see Crawford finishing him no matter how much he may outclass him. As sophisticated as he is, I think Errol can follow the game plan and win based on aggression.

I slightly lean towards Spence.

Any idea who Crawford can fight next? Maybe a PBC fighter? It's in Crawford's best interest to stay with Top Rank because over the next few years all PBC fighters will fight each other and be in some wars. Errol might not be the last man standing. I could see a scenario where the weight cut starts to catch up to him a year or so from now and he is in some competitive fights due to opposition and the weight cut. I'm not so sure Spence could beat Danny Garcia who is growing into the weight class and more sophisticated imo. I can see Danny Garcia beating a guy like Errol Spence especially as time passes.

Time is on Crawford's side and it seems like he's not fighting any PBC fighter anytime soon let alone Spence.

I'll take Spence, though I still haven't seen the Khan fight.
Hard to judge too much from the kahn fight, since Kahn is not quite as fast as he used to be.

At the same time, Kahn had the balls to engage Crawford, repeatedly, and we got to see Crawford staying calm under heavy pressure, yet still aggressive and accurate.

Having said that, Spence obviously hits a ton harder than Amir. - But that's why I think we might see more of a chess match, with both fighters afraid to fully commit. That would suck, but f it happens, Crawford is by far the better boxer of the two.

I think Spence will always commit hes an aggressive guy, Mikey managed to catch so many shots on his gloves something hes been doing for years but Crawford gets hit clean when he doesnt see them coming, dont think Spence can afford a chess match with Crawford he would get picked off

Spence vs Thurman/Pac is next, Arum has lied his whole life
That be good for Spence because I can see Crawford outboxing him. I know he is small and Spence has the amateur pedigree, but Spence is only going to get better. Going 12 rounds with Garcia was good for him though.

I think Spence steamrolls Crawford late, the Mikey fight was tactical but theres no way he can try and outbox Crawford hes going to have to rip body shots on from the start

I think if Pacquiao wins he's going to fight Danny Garcia, leaving Spence and Crawford out of the running.
Yeah thats a good shout at least that way we could get Spence vs Crawford quicker, might have to route for Thurman to win now no way he could duck Spence for a rematch with Danny
