This tells you how some boxing fans don’t know what they are watching when they watch boxing. Crawford is so much more skilled than Thurman . Crawford should beat Thurman but anything can happen in a fight. But spence is a different animal.. I think bud is a better fighter but spence is hungry and young and skilled. Not to mention way bigger. Kelli brook is huge in terms of welter weight but spence is even bigger than brooks. Spence would beat bud imo

It would be similar to Alvarez vs ggg..

Thurman is really not as big as he thinks he is and people act like some Folks can't grow into 147 over time well Bud has and he's now a bigger specimen than Thurman is physically and Thurman with his wide swinging punches would get clipped imo
No. Oscar, Mosley, Winky, Ike, Pernell are better boxers than Crawford overall. And who has he fought to make you think such a thing

The thing with Thurman is, he rarely throws combinations. Pot-shotting is not the way to go versus Crawford. Thurman has been a back foot fighter for a minute now and hardly applies pressure. This is a bad style match up for Thurman IMO. Bud does everything better. The only question I have is if Bud can bring up his power to 147. If he does, nobody short of Spence will be an even fight.
Thurman has the better defense, footwork, athleticism, and counter punching is a wash. So Crawford does not do everything better.

No one is lining up to fight Spence. Garcia went into the Witness Protection Program for shook boxers and Porter is hell bent on rematching with Thurman to try and get that WBC strap off his hands. Garcia will cry how he is awaiting a rematch with Thurman. After Thurman's 'soft touch' back fight, I believe he fights Garcia and Porter and uses those fights to keep TBC on the back burner. What do you think?

Its about a TWO to FIVE pound difference on fight night. Thats with Bud having to make 140. While Bud is a half inch taller and an inch longer reach. #FAKENEWS

Crawford is scary good, Thurman isn't as talented but saying he "wouldn't have have a chance" is a bit short sighted. Crawford's speed and footwork are levels above his but Thurman has a punchers chance against anyone in that division, including the kid from Omaha.
