    How would this one go?

    It's one of the best fights that can be made in the sport, on of the few that is truly worthy of a PPV.

    Someone make it happen. I have no doubt Spence would take it. How about Bud? Not so sure.

    Crawford imo I won't cry if he loses or forget my prediction it doesn't matter if you get a prediction wrong it really doesn't, people defend fighters like their first born son on here, I'd love to know how many of these people have been to watch their fighter live... I'd expect it to be a low number

    I think they both would take it, but Haymon and Arum might prevent it.

    I feel today the same way I felt before the fight about Spence and more so about a fight against Crawford. Crawford beats him. Soundly.

    I said it 3 years ago, 2 years ago, 1 year ago and I say it today. Crawford shuts him out.

    I don't know if you are right but I agree Crawford gives you nothing unless he wants to see what you bring or unless he has no fear of the power.
    But it's the in fight adjustments that are his strengths that set him apart.
    And iam a sucker for a fighter with composure and that lad has only tap

    Crawford barely stopped a one-legged fighter in his last fight. He looked very average until he caught Benavidez in the 12th. He also looked rattled and unsure of himself.

    The close results of the poll so far is indicative of what a competitive, interesting match-up this would be.

    We just saw Errol completely outbox a very, very good technical boxer in Mikey. Mikey may have been coming up in weight, but he didn't lose his excellent technical skills.

    To say another guy who just came up to welterweight two fights ago, no matter how technically proficient, would shut Spence out......I think is going out on a bit of a stretch.

    Spence would be the bigger man against Bud. We would have to actually see them against each other to see who outboxes who, but Spence has his superior size to fall back on. And what about Bud? What if he finds out he cannot outbox Spence, what then? Switch into southpaw?...okay. Then it's going to be a fight, and I'd sit back and enjoy watching it.

    We don't really know what happens, but to say one "shuts out" the other....no, just no.:nonono
