    Default Spence vs algeri

    Supposedly this fight is being made for sometime in April. Great fight for Spence if it happens. Good step up and it will really launch him into a real name in boxing. Spence is the real deal. I believe that he will be in the top 3 p4p at least within a few years.

    That's a good fight. Less convinced of the Spence defense last couple fights, stands tall up front and straight line but his arsenal is proven and rolls bricks in! Chris can keep mobile and all jokes aside can shoot solid combos from rooftop to basement. Like the scrap.

    There is a lot of positive talk about Spence. He is talented but I do not see him being a special fighter. What am I missing?

    What are you missing? Boxing knowledge maybe?

    Oh I think he's pretty special. Real savvy skill set and a southpaw to boot. I hate to compare him to you know who but some of the similarities are uncanny.

    His 17th fight coming in at 16 and 0 with 13 knockouts.


    Floyds 17th fight coming in at 16 and 0 with 13 knockouts.


    I just realized both opponents were even Canadian.

    I'm not a fan of answering a ? with a ? but what made people think Floyd was special when he fought Pep or Leonard when he fought Muniz?

    Its what he does and how he does it that makes me believe he's a special fighter. I would not be surprised to see Brook duck him.

    Most of the time I need to see a guy really step up their competition to say how good they are, but there are few fighters, like Spence, that I can just see how well and effortlessly he fights even against weaker competition.

    OK I see that. World class fighter with world class moves at an early stage of his career. If he is heading for Brook then that would be a dynamite fight.

    He's the mandatory. Thats an incredible fight. Kell has been feasting a little but may have gotten a little to comfortable.

    The welter weight division pisses me off like no other. So deep and so stagnant.

    I bet Hearn is scared of the mandatory and not facing Khan before Spence. Love it if that fight happens.

    If Spence can beat algeri comfortably then he should fight Brook next. I'm relying on Spence to be the fighter who takes over the division.

    I think Thurman is the best in the division.

    Spence has a self awareness and methodical breakdown about him from what I've seen. The way he rolls punches in and varies the pop is something to watch. There are no 'throw away' shots. Thurman is on a roll but the dude fights tense and his belly has looked susceptible as of late. Be interesting to see how he wants to approach Porters pressure. I think they might fast track him for vacant wbo trinket after, likely, grabbing Algieri spot but who knows. Just glad the welters are heating up and talent is on the rise! Shame Khan is missing it, but I'm sure he can afford the airfare back after Alvarez peels him off his boot

    I agree but I think Spence will take over that spot in two or three fights unless Crawford comes up then Crawford may be the best.

    Jeez. There is a lot to be excited about in the WW division if people actually fight each other
