Crawford vs. Spence - CompuBox Head To Head Analysis

By CompuBox

Errol Spence (last 5 fights) threw nearly 20 more punches per round than Terence Crawford (last 11 fights- 2 at welterweight).

Spence landed 22 punches per round to 16.7 for Crawford. Both landed nearly half their power shots, with Spence landing six more per round. Spence hits harder and is the more effective body puncher, as 32.3% of his landed punches are body shots, compared to 22.6% for Crawford (last 11), who upped his body shot game vs. Benavidez, as 38% of his landed punches were body shots.

Spence lands 7.1 body shots per round- #3 among CompuBox leaders. The jab will be key in this fight. Both landed 6+ per round (slightly higher than the welter. avg.), yet Spence opponents landed just 1.3 jabs per round, while Bud's opponents landed just 1.9. Which fighter will establish his jab?

Crawford is more selective with his punch output, and his defensive numbers reflect this: Opponents landed just 7.1 punches per round- 10.2 fewer than the welterweight avg. and #4 on the CompuBox Categorical Leaders list.

Crawford opponents also landed just 5.2 power shots per round- 7 fewer than the welter. avg. Spence opponents landed just 8 power shots per round, but landed 33.5%- 7% higher than Crawford opponents.
