    He's as good as a young Mayweather or Sugar Ray Leonard. He's for sure going to be a multiple weight champ in the future. Whether he will be an ATG depends on how he is managed and who he fights.

    The reason he's not a prodigy is because he didn't win a medal at the Olympics. Winning at the Olympics is a good way to kickstart a boxing career.

    But he definitely has the same level of talent. He will be an ATG if he's managed right.

    I've been saying Spence needs to step up a level but not that level. Spence needs to start fighting guys at the bottom of the top 15 and work his way u before steeping in against Porter. I'd start at a lower level first though. . Porter is a handful for anyone and I don't think Spence has even fought a tough fighter anywhere near that level. They need to match him against a mauler who will stay there with him and put pressure on him for the whole fight who has a sturdy chin. It seems a lot of his recent opponents are always taking their fights on short notice and aren't that good anyway. He needs to be in fights with fighters who have a good training camp and have decent skills. He's being coddled too much.

    I'd like to see him against Bundu maybe?

    Then after maybe Guerro if he performs well and they want to fast track him.

    Thurman might beat him but I think he would beat Porter. I'd love to see him fight either. I was thinking a Soto Karass level but this is fine to.

    WW is going to be interesting when Floyd and Manny step off the stage.

    Theres a bunch of guys in their 20s who all are looking to be #1

    Spence
    Thurman
    Brook
    Porter
    Khan
    Ali
    Vasquez

    Lots of interesting fights to be made

    ROFLMAO Alex at least I have a pair You & your idol certainly haven't. I'd love to see Anne Wolfe or Ronda Rousey get their hands on Mayweather. He'd think twice about ever beating another woman they'd whup his punk a$$ but GOOD!!!!!

    ROFLMAO Mayweather ran & held like the coward we all know he is. Even his own father called him a COWARD!!!!!!!
    "Why are you fighting scared Floyd you know he's beating you" ?? He was afraid to engage a basically one armed man.
    But why should he?? He knew full well all he had to do was be on his feet at final bell & he'd get the decision eg 118-110 :patsch

    Really Manny could retire today because he is without doubt the Fighter of the Era & the decade. He has nothing else to prove he is a bona fide ATG
    As for Mayweather He can retire any time he wants he'll NEVER be as good as Pacquaio. He's the boil on boxings a$$ lol
