Right. Going into the Bramble fight, I thought the Butterfly was the most skilled performer in boxing, and was surprised and disappointed by that showing, as much as I liked Ras-I. I was impressed by how he stood in front of the much taller Blake, and hit without being hit, always trading punches on his own terms.

Crawley grew up watching and idolizing Tyrone Everett, and felt the Everett was the P4P best in the world. (This would have been before the circumstances of Everett's passing came to light.)
