It's actually been pretty shocking to me that so few posters have mentioned the fighter's respective corners, team, and ability to game plan and see/communicate in-fight patterns, openings, or holes in their fighter in regards to the potential impact it could have on the fight, possibly being the deciding factor. Spence isn't a fighter that really makes in-fight adjustments, or rather he is, but not like other fighters. Spence's in-fight adjustments have primarily been punching the gas pedal harder and amping up the pressure on his opponent rather than tactical/technical adjustments high IQ fighters are usually known to make. Two clear edges I think any objective fans HAVE to give to Mikey are in his ring IQ/generalship and his corner. You'd be hard-pressed to find a corner/team as experienced, smart, and meticulous as Mikey's, if a corner/team like that even exists in boxing at the moment. Mikey, Robert, their whole family and his whole team are genuinely very smart dudes, and genius level intellect in regards to boxing, noticing patterns, keys and tendencies, game planning, and preparation for a fight. Mikey is by no means a bad athlete or even average for that matter, but he's not a special athlete and rightfully peaks athletically as above average. To be as great as he is -- especially on the p4p level -- you HAVE to be incredibly skilled, experienced, smart, adaptable, tough, quick thinking, durable, and technically/fundamentally damn near perfect. Not to take anything away from Mikey because he has more than earned all he has in boxing primarily because he's worked his tail off at it, but to be so gifted in all of his positive attributes as he is, you already almost have to know he started boxing VERY young, was brought up in a rabid boxing family and community, but also brought up and taught by multiple geniuses in regards to boxing analytics.
