The Manny who boxed Thurman has a huge chance vs Spence. Spence is brilliant, but a bit overrated in the grand scheme of things. Brook could have beaten him if he never fought GGG beforehand. His size is a big problem for any fighter who is small at the weight.

 

 

Did you see Donaire last week? Incredible. Future hall of famer. He's tested 24/7 all year round too. 

 

Indeed I did. Had to stay up till 5 and it's getting harder and harder. Definite 1st ballot hall of Famer, one of the great punchers in boxing history. That left hook is just so sweet. He is, I think, one win away from being an ATG.

 

By the way pal, you didn't answer my question: who would you bet on if Taylor got it in with Crawford in December?

Apologies. I see it similar to you, Crawford favoured 60/40, but I think Taylor can beat him. Taylor has everything needed to beat Crawford. Speed, timing, can fight dirty, good chin.

 

He'll need to box him like Gamboa did, when Gamboa got success at times. Disrupt his rhythm and get in and out. It's a huge task, but he can definitely pull it off if the step up in weight is not an issue.

 

Where do you rate Crawford and Spence among the recent great Welterweights? I know they've both got a few years left yet, and not fighting each other is killing their legacies as they've not got many names on their records.

It's difficult to say, because they're both top 10 P4P guys. Very skilled fighters.

 

Having said that, as highly as I rate Crawford who has he actually beat? What's his best win? Postol? Gamboa? Indongo?

 

Spence has a solid enough C.V at Welterweight, but his 4 main rivals since 2015 have been Floyd, Manny, Thurman and Crawford and he hasn't fought any of them.

 

Did you see Showtime are doing a 4 episode documentary series on Hearns, Hagler, Leonard and Duran? Will be available in the morning:

Bradley will end up with a better resumé if they're not careful. I think when Taylor beats Crawford, the fans will know.

 

I cannot wait for this from Showtime. I have the four kings on DVD, it's bloody brilliant

I was on twitter in the early hours and saw that Mayweather was fighting in the trending topics, this summed up my situation not long after :

I went to have a look for it - whoever has made that vid and posted it has edited to make it look like that. Why?? What is wrong with people on Twitter? I know this is a farce that nobody gives a fuck about, but it’s significant across everything. It’s pathetic.

I looked for it too, it doesn't look as bad watching the actual fight but Logan still looked fucked at that moment. If it was a more serious fight Mayweather could've probably finished him about there or backed off to let him go to the floor. Maybe he respected the fact that Logan had got that far though and helped him out a little.

Is that how he really speaks? Fucking hell.

 

Not sure but I can't take it seriously after that slurp sound at 2 seconds haha. Someone maybe altered the voice?
