    here is how the site saw it on that night. just read and be amazed at the ridiculous things being posted about what they see. now that you have an idea about how it was seen by the majority, go see the first rd for yourself and have a good laugh. now you can better single out who dksab, or is just full of ****.

    Unknown at this point, looks the part but he hasn't done anything particularly special yet. Beat a damaged Brook and a smaller guy. His resume is **** poor. They don't seem to be in a rush to get him a good opponent either, even though WW's stacked.

    yeah, except the fight ended in the manner i described before and after the fight, while 95% cant say the same. i am a fan of spence because i know how good he is. same with loma, same with mikey, same with crawford. my main criteria for nuthugging is actual talent, not how good they make me feel about myself.

    i get it, im what kids today would call "woke". i understand the needs a lot of these fans have, and how boxers fill those needs. i understand how few people understand boxing beyond a casual level. i get that half the people who offer up their opinion on here, dont know much about anything, let alone the details that make up elite level fighting.
    i also understand how me saying these things, makes me even more disliked than i already am, lol.

    yes, i always encourage valuable exchange of thoughts, im just not shy about letting people know how their opinion is garbage, when its garbage, because it stagnates the discussion and keeps it from moving forward, where everyone can benefit.

    Won't know if Spence is special until he fights more top level welters. I wouldn't pick him to beat a prime De La Hoya. He wouldn't have beaten Leonard or Hearns. How his fight with Brook went. He may not have beaten Brook, if Brook hadn't just moved up to middleweight and got beat down by Golovkin. I too saw Spence hurt a couple of times by a guy who had doubt in himself due to the broken face from Golovkin.
