Spence has only had one world level fight. Why are people hyping him so hard?
Spence just has size. But Roidquez was tougher than prime Spence.
Yes, both have a few each. I would name them but I don't have time to argue each case.
Pacquiao (way past prime)
Melon Head Miguel
And then you have the 2 gauchos from The Pampas Maidana and Baldomir
Melon Head Miguel
Timachenko x 3
Spence is good but I honestly don’t know at this point how he would do against guys like Margo, clottey or cotto - versions pac fought. I think all those guys could beat brooks which is Spence biggest win.
It just amazes me how the op continues to post some of the dumbest most pointless threads this forum sees.
Spence's best win is Brook whom you don't even rate.
As a big Spence fan,you're right.
H2h I’d say he’s better than all of them excluding Floyd and Pac. Pfp he’s in the mix somewhere with the other opponents.
Pac faced a prime, undefeated Cotto at 147 (actually 145 which was a bit of a ***** move). Cotto was more dangerous.
Floyd didn't face many notable 147 pounders who were in their prime. Pac and Mosley were well past prime, Cotto was worn, I guess Maidana was prime.
Pac, definitely. Floyd, probably.
Don't think Oscar, Vargas, Clottey or Lucas were as tough as Spence is now. Especially Oscar. Walking Zombie. None of the others I mentionedd never looked as impressive as Spence. But time will tell. Spence needs to really fight more. No reason he can't be adding bodies to his resume while trying to negociate bigger fights. Dude should be fighting 3-5 times year. That just isn't exclusive to Spence! All these youngsters need to fight more.
I would rate Mayweather's win over Alvarez at 154 greater than a win over Spence at 147.
This is quite a strange question for you to ask seeing as you don't seem to rate Brook that much and he's by far Spence's best win so far. As for my answer to the question, Cotto is more proven than Spence to this point and they both beat him.
Pretty sure they've beaten guys who already did more at 147 than Spence has...
