De La Hoya faced the 15-6-2 Paris Alexander
Mayweather faced the 6-3 Jerry Cooper
I know they were two outstanding talents and no one is saying Spence is nearly as good, but fighting guys who are 0-1 with all the amateur credentials Spence has is a waste of time.
Interesting Andre Ward's first 3 opponents were 13-1 combined
