i agree that brook was never great or going to be great, but he was definitely a solid fighter in terms of his talents, skills, and also his willingness to take on challenges. he was a top fighter, a divisional elite, whatever you want to call it. top 25 pound for pound is pretty damn solid, and he was probably that [though i have not hashed out a contemporary top 25 myself and it gets quite abstract.]


i'd call brook "very good." clottey was just "good."

spence has limitations and i expect them to catch up to him eventually, but he's strong, has a great chin, and he'll make up for it. he wasn't eating a ton of clean punches in spite of the fact that he was coming forward and throwing bombs. when he did eat big shots he took them, got his composure, and fought back. he has a style and an offense that's going to make him a handful while he's young and has the legs. i'm very excited about his career.



the eventual fight is spence and crawford. i think it can be built into a ppv. the problem will be promotion and networks.
Clottey always found a way to lose.
