    brook was in pieces by that point, while spence looked like he was in the 1st rd.

    No not special but elite. I knew when he turned pro years ago his style suited the pro game more than it did the amateur game.

    show where do you think spence was troubled by movement. i mean, he wrecked the champ, even with this trouble you seem to have seen.

    I need to see tank do more than to come forward and overwhelm people with speed and power before saying that.

    Prime pac lost to Bradley and couldn't beat jmm clearly. Spence at 147 would give pac hell.

    what rd? so i can at least look at it and see what is happening. cause i didnt see any trouble that would be unexpected from a fighter of brooks caliber, spence is just much better. and again, spence is still developing. fighting an elite will come close to completing him.

    no, that isnt. spence fights by invading your space, he beat mikey by not letting mikey invade his.

    Tank had over 400 AM fights at such a young age. He's like lightning, Spence isn't as much of a Freak of Nature Athlete Imho. Spence has grinded in sparring, he's definitely one of the best right now. I'm more impressed with Tank though, still so young it's unbelievable.

    1 2 not sure about the third but a few of the first rounds all close then spence gets caught in almost all the first five
