You're not sold on Crawford because he got knocked down once 7 years ago, and still stopped unbeaten Gamboa, who at the time was viewed as the next big thing at lightweight. Same with Postol, he dropped him twice before beating an unbeaten fighter. Turn the tables on Taylor everybody so bullish on, who has he beat? An undersized Prograis? Ramirez who got beat by the same old Postol. If skills pay the bills then Crawford easily handles him,....the guy can switch like nobody else, I mean nobody in the sport does what he do in the ring. Maybe not Mayweather, but he has his own style that is unique to trouble anybody. The reach advantage, ring IQ, switching is why I would pick Crawford over Taylor anyday.
