    Default Spence activates rematch clause.

    What happens in the rematch and what weight class will Crawford stipulate?

    I thought I read somewhere (and I might be imagining it) that the loser gets to stipulate the weight? I reckon I have got it wrong because it obviously doesn’t sound right.
    I understand Spence activating the rematch clause because it’s the best money fight out there for him.
    But I think Crawford wins again , whichever weight it’s at because I think he was also looking at moving up.

    Ego and pride are obviously driving Spence's decision, but I can't believe he seriously thinks he has a chance of reversing the result.

    It's not as if it was close or controversial.


    I would argue that Crawford boxed within himself and still won easily.


    I think Spence would benefit from a tune-up at 154 just to get his confidence up, because an immediate rematch with someone as stellar as Crawford will just yield the same result.

    Surely rematches have happened in the boxing past that was dominant one way then reversed in the rematch?

    It’s possible.

    Crawford beats all versions of Spence but expect plenty of excuses to build the rematch.

    Spence will want it at 154lb but the same outcome will occur. Spence was awful looking back at the first fight. Crawford did not really move up the gears.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    When a fighter takes a beating like that. It is wise to have two or three tune up fights. Or his career is over.

    Crawford probably stops him in less than 3.

    Posted as much in another thread... and will post it here.

    Rematch will probably happen at 154. Spence may or may not be more competitive... but he gets whupped again.

    Activating the clause takes the Canelo-Crawford circus off the boards, at least for now. One less obstacle to allow Canelo to keep avoiding the dangerous opponents in his OWN weight division.

    Would definitely say Spence should take a get back fight at 154 and give himself every shot of salvaging and steadying remainder of career. Saw talk that he may very well replace Derrick James too.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    The fact is GGG has fought at 160 for his entire career. Post #87, 5th August 2022

    Never been big on Roy as full time trainer. Partly as he’s still determined to fight himself but Roy is going to Roy and always be a focus. He and Spence come off as polar opposites in personality and style. Either way, new trainer screams “tune up needed” before a Bud rematch with them.

    I think Loser activate the rematch. Winner gets to pick the weight. I believe crawford said 154 as he feels he owes spence for giving him his shot so its only fair. I believe spence was supposed to be one of the 3 fights on the PBC contract at a higher weight. Crawford threw a wrench into those plans. Now Canelo fights a charlo. Then there was an empty space. Crawfords not a PBC fighter so Canelo can't really mention his name. (he already said he would only fight crawford at 168 prior to trying to downgrade him recently by saying spence was the only good fighter on his record). So canelo beats charlo and hopes spence avenges his loss at '54 so they can write off the drubbing as being weight drained. So canelo fights him and then maybe benavidez.

    Crawford will do what he has to do to spence... The fans will talk the fight up again. Canelo if he gets through the end of his PBC contract will pretend like he doesn't exist or wait him out (crawfords older and already said hes not staying much longer), while talking a bivol rematch, then retirement.

    When the dust settles. People will wonder how great crawford could have been if not for bob arum stalling out his career... after trying to scrape some names together for the remainder to put a stamp on his legacy. I feel like spence will be a tragedy, wind up blind in one eye or something and people will be talking about him and when he should have stopped... Canelo will be have a floyd like groupies that will paint him as the best ever then wince every time someone mentions Bivol.
    They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.

    It's really too bad Crawford wasted so many years with Arum. Against Spence we saw a glimpse of just how great Crawford could've been for many more years. Now he's on the downside of his prime. Hopefully he's got a few more big fights left in him. "Boots" Ennis was mentioned, and that would be a great fight. Canelo? Meh. If everything was equal and Bud could fight Canelo at a good weight for both, Crawford would rip Ginger a new one. He's that much more of a better fighter. Regarding Canelo groupies... you've got it pegged correctly. I personally think Canelo avoids Benavidez and rides off into the sunset, claiming ATG status that in my opinion doesn't belong to him. His career was too manufactured for my liking. Too bad Bivol didn't agree to see him again at 175. He would've knocked him out this time around. Spence... well... I feel for the guy. He hasn't got too many outs here. From undefeated and at the top of his fame... to having been thoroughly thrashed by Crawford in convincing fashion. Who knows what's next for Spence...
