I don't thinking anyone is hyping Spence up. Golovkin was being hyped when he was beating up mediocre opponents. Everyone was down playing Spence's win over Algieri, Bundu, and even Brook. Three solid wins for a fighter that just stopped being a prospect. I'm sure they'll be people down playing the win last night.

In terms of race, a black fighter getting some attention is not the same as a white fighter getting attention.

There's a reason it's called "The Great White Hope" and not the other way around.

We saw the same thing with GGG now we are seeing it with Spence. Is this pay back for all the years GGG was being hyped on this site?
of course he is.

if GGG was Black, Larry would throw buck neked parties every fight.

There is a difference between being excited about an up and coming fighter and over hyping. The WW division will come down to two fighters by end of 2019, Spence and Crawford. Hopefully they will be on a collision course and one of them becomes undisputed champ of the division.
