    Horrible promotion. Another reason why Crawford left arum.

    Boxing promotion is poor and very dated. We haven’t had a single new star in the sport for a long long time now.

    Crawford interviews are stale but in the lead up to Porter the footage of him in his camp was fun to watch. When Crawford is socializing with his mates he has plenty of personality.

    With respect, do you know what charisma is?

    It could be his safety 1st approach/performance to close out his 1st PPV vs Postal..

    I know that was his 1st PPV
    & while he dominated Postal, it was a lack luster stanky finish to his PPV debut.

    this was the first PPV I bought for bud since that fight & it was on the strength that he was fighting porter, why I purchased it.

    he needs to finish his fights this way
    Since he lacks both the Mayweather “villian” / de la hoya “golden boy” charisma.

    So! What matters is how he performs in the ring. Which he does very well. Only 2 maybe 3 other fighters perform on his level or higher right now. He's a fighter, nothing more, nothing less. Honestly, he doesn't need a fan like you supporting him anyway. Don't tune in, don't buy. He'll be Ok.

    Yes but Masvidal had a highlight reel KO of Askren and utilised that by being good on the mic and having some charisma. He's a nearly man but he can still sell a fight. Crawford is about as interesting as watching grass grow. Until he fights Spence he doesn't have a signature win. and no Porter wasn't it.

    And I would add that he did this poor job on purpose. His way of saying "**** you, crawford".

    You can ask nicholas walters if arum is able or not to **** a fighter's career for vengeance or not.

    A dunken ****** would make a good product out of crawford, let alone a promoter as experienced as Arum. If he didnt do it it is clearly because he didnt want to. Arum is a POS.

    edit: how the **** can ****** be a forbidden word??? it's an animal for god's sake!
