Are you flirting with me, Doby ?


Gun to your head. Pick
Well, we don't really know how getting tossed from a high-speed car will affect the lad, but...

...with a gun to my head, if it was the exact same Pac who beat Thurman, and the exact same (undamaged by the crash) Spence who beat Porter, then I would predict a very close points win for Pac.

After the Porter fight I actually think it's a 50/50 fight. Pac won't have to chase much and he won't have to watch out for a counter right hand that he's always been a bit prone to being a southpaw. Pac shouldn't have any problems finding Spence's chin.

Spence while having good balance and pivoting off nicely up close doesn't move very much, he'll be right in front of Pac for long periods allowing Pac to dart in and out and not having to chase.

If this was anything close to prime Pac I'd see Spence getting a beating but with Pac older, slower and Spence being such a physical fighter it's possible Spence simply out lasts him and stops him late due to being younger and fresher. Either way I expect a very close fight.

Spence roughs him up on the inside, batters his body and stops him late.

Doesn’t look like Manny really wants it, since it’s looking like he’ll fight Mikey if he beats Vargas.

If I'm not mistaken, Spence hasn't fought since flipping that car and there's no telling how that will effect him in the ring.

If the fight with Manny is made, I'd give the edge to Spence simply because of size and youth being on his side.

Manny has been a great across the board champion in the many weight divisions he's won titles, but no matter how good a fighter is, they can't beat father time, and Manny is getting long in the tooth for a fighter in the divisions he campaigns in.

Manny has a massive experience advantage, plus he seems to have access to some REALLY good Arisa shakes, so despite Spence's physical advantages, I make it 50 / 50.

I'd put the chance of it ending via KO at maybe 75 / 25.

I doubt the car crash will be a factor. Surely Spence will have at least one decent tune-up fight before facing Manny, if in fact this fight actually happens.

Personally, I don't see what's in it for Pacman, so my guess is that it will never happen.
