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
If I was Arum I'd let the PBC WWs fight each other and go through some wars. Get who he can for Crawford in the meantime, then put him against PBC WWs when the smoke clears.

Cant believe anything Arum says about this fight, this is the one time Arum wants to make a super fight because he has no opponents left for Crawford

If Spence beats Porter then Thurman theres no way they do a equal split

: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.
What all this boils down to is PPV is bullshit and is actually oppressing a sport that could be doing a lot better. Fuck PPV. For once I think the DAZN subscription model is ideal. It's better than being gouged for a halfway decent fight that would have been on HBO boxing after dark 20 years ago.

I gave the edge to Crawford if he backs Spence up. Spence can be outboxed and he's visibly uncomfortable moving backwards.

Crawford can both box, and be aggressive...size might be a factor though.

I think Spence wins. He’s just a tighter, more consistent boxer. I thought Crawford looked fairly average vs Khan. Crawford doesn’t have that elite win on his record yet so he needs this fight and he needs to win it if he is going to be looked upon favourably in a historical sense. I don’t think he’s quite what some people make him out to be.

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

Yeah, you're probably right.

So then the question is: If Spence is the bull in the china shop, can Crawford be the matador, for 12 rounds?

Such a hard fight to predict but I have to go with Spence because of his size, imagine if Pac had a weight advantage on Floyd would be a completely different fight, I think Spence walks through Crawford's shots and stops him late after losing the first 6

Bud is a weird anomaly to me. He's not the best boxer, nor is he the best slugger...but he's the best at mixing the two together. I don't view Crawford as highly as most do, but I think he's all wrong for Spence. He can box better than Spence, but also doesn't allow himself to be bullied
