    Default Crawford vs Brook..14th Nov

    Why is a Crawford fighting Brook?

    Loma fights the best in the division to unify whilst Crawford is sitting round waiting for Spence to move up!

    Sick and tired of Crawford fighting these past prime fighters and I hope Brook beats him.

    Khan rematch is probably scheduled for Spring 2021..lol

    Loma refused Berchelt, the best at 130 and moved up to 135 and refused Garcia, the best there. Why is there this effort to erase these facts?

    Loma deserves the credit for what he has done, but he repeatedly refused to fight the best guys.

    Crawford can’t get the good fights because all of the top welters are signed with PBC. I think the Spence fight will eventually happen though. Also, Pacquiao can do what he wants which is why he fought Thurman and not Crawford. Crawford has wanted to fight Pacquiao for years.

    I am annoyed that he isn’t fighting the best welterweights out there, but I really think in this case, he is stuck.

    Yep, maybe he is stuck, but that’s down to him. He made a business decision to sign with Arum while all the WW’s are with PBC. Now he’s gonna get the stick for it, that’s life I’m afraid.
    And I actually believe that Crawford is the most complete fighter in the World.
    But even I can’t call him P4P #1 because his record doesn’t prove it.
    Terrible shame really , but Boxing politics is what it is!
    Former Undisputed 4 belt Prediction champion. Still P4P and People’s Champion.

    For Ward ot pretend last night that Brook "Is the best available opponent out there" sums it up. Brook had huge potential but that ship has sailed.

    Yes, very much like Junior Witter.

    I thought Witter was excellent, awkward style, heavy hands, good engine and that we was better than Hatton. Never got the chance to prove it, got frozen out by the big names and made some odd career decisions. His prime quietly passed him by.

    Brook seems to have gone the same way

    What a complete mess.

    No one is denying Crawford and his skillset but it’s pointless if he’s not using them against quality opponents.

    Crawford is happy living in his top rank bubble being protected so he can keep his 0.

    Shame there’s not one body like the UFC forcing these fighters to fight the best.

    Let's not forget that Crawford is 33 years old. And his resume, as much as we enjoy watching him fight, is nothing to write home about.

    The calls for him to step it up opponent-wise are only getting louder and louder.... and tougher to ignore.

    Rematch Jeff Horn 2021. Lol

    Crawford really messed up.

    Brook has x2 broken eye sockets and is way past his best fighting in a weight drained division.

    What is the point?

    What does this fight prove?

    At Least Kell fought GGG and Spence.

    You have to admire Brook’s bravery , but it could end up badly.

    Huge Crawford fan since early on. But honestly I'm all out of patience and feel it's incumbent on a clear elite talent to demand better bigger relevant fights at this stage. When I think of guys stuck in contracts or 'forced' to whither on a vine I think of guys buried by Don King. What's also lost is Brook is barely ranked at 9th at 154. This is just taking the name of Brook and you can't get away from Crawford looking to do what his king pin rival, Spence, did nearly 4 years ago. I'd rather have him fighting than not and always enjoy his skill but truly believe Crawford is in real danger of it all passing him by as time waits for no one. Boredom and monotony catches up and makes you complacent and last out it had Crawford rocked a couple of times. He needs to take Arum into a small room and make things happen.

    How about a catch weight fight with Lopez so he doesn’t have to fight Spence.

    After the Lomachenko loss, Crawford is supposedly the P4P No.1...what has he done for us lately?
