    Considering the title of this thread, Crawford's boxing career has been nothing short of a tremendous success. That said, he is a great talent (or at least appears to be), although he will not go down as a great fighter unless there are drastic additions made to his resume.

    Is it worth it? Would you be content to surrender your boxing legacy and greatness? He had the talent, but not the dance partners.

    He’s definitely lucky with how his career turned out, but I think it’s completely worth it to take at least one big risk. I don’t like him but he has the tools to potentially beat anyone so why wouldn’t he want a career defining moment.

    Fair enough. He's a good fighter. A good fighter nobody cares about...

    He'll regret it or just lie to himself for the rest of his life.

    I think he knows Spence has the beating of him and now he's mentally messed himself up going over it so many times. He'd need Spence to die from a weight drain to even consider it.

    Fury & Usyk will fight for all the marbles and neither man really cares about winning or losing. They will both just do their best and "let god decide" That mentality is why they're so good.

    All the skills in the world, just not the urgency to fight the best fighters in his division. He doesn't even have a career defining win at this point, and for a supposed p4p #1 fighter that just doesn't fly with me.

    I agree with you. Boxing is full of stories of Fighters who have problems with their managers and promoters who could not get big fights who could not get title shots who are very underpaid. On the contrary he had a tremendous career a great legacy and made a ton of money. It is not his fault that he is not a bigger superstar. However he made a big mistake resigning with top rank when he should have went to pbc. PBC had all the defining fights at welter so that was a big mistake. Low risk High rewards.

    It looked like the venue was pretty well packed. But I'm glad the PPV tanked. Nothing against Crawford, but no way in hell was that a PPV worthy event. To think, Arguello/Mancini & Arguello Pryor were shown on regular TV. Let that sink in. Now they expect us pay $40.00 for a meaningless fight?

    Who cares? He’ll be remembered for his paper thin resume and unifying 140 when it was garbage.

    I know some of you will say " Here he goes again" but I believe Floyd has finally realized why the vast majority of boxing fans do not regard him as one of the best ever. He let the Vegas mafia & $$$$$$ control him. He knew in Vegas he would never be allowed to lose regardless of how the fight went & he could cherry pick his opponents as he pleased. His butt was covered from ever being caught cheating
    The sad part is he had the talent & skills to do this on his own without the "help" but the lure of the Vegas $$$$$$$$$$ made him pretend to be the bad guy. Now he's retired he realizes he'll never be revered like an Ali , Robinson or Marciano & keeps him putting up these circus shows to try to keep his name in the news
    In 20 years time kids will be asking who Floyd Mayweather jr was & was he any good

    Floyd will never be considered as tough, manly and honorable as those men. He made the most money, but hes not a man's man.

    I ****en hate that stupid people think that either Crawford or Spence are avoiding each other.

    Stop being morons and blaming the wrong people.
