Re: Spence is better than Crawford?
There is a trend of many people are coming off that Spence win like he's unstoppable now. I'm not saying he had a crap performance. I liked the body work, but he still didn't look like what people exalting him as. Then again, that could just be me. Don't think I was ever on his bandwagon. It seemed like one of his biggest accomplishments before was rumors of his sparring match with mayweather. I didn't put a whole lot of stock in the Garcia win or the brook win due to weight disparities. He's a solid southpaw with good bodywork and probably better than most.
I also see that he often over extends himself on shots, his balance isn't great and he thinks too much. Maybe its just me. If Crawford can avoid that liver shot, and start early (for once), and doesn't go straight back, I think he finds spence pretty easy every time he drops his hands to do his body work and adjusts quicker. That's if all this contract stuff hasn't gone to Bud's ego and he stays grounded. Just my opinion, I could be wrong
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.
