He was OK.

Good boxer, aggressive, fairly talented. Was a pretty good prospect at one time, around the time he challenged Bramble.

anemic on offense. The boxing press loved him and in my opinion gave him a little too much credit. Made beating Blake seem easy but offered little too resistance against Bramble which in my opinion is a fight worth looking at

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.)

Probably, under the right circumstances and fighter, would have been the champion.
