At 140, who would have won?
kt was a machine.
My money would have been on KT. But TC would be a very live dog.
Kosta by mid rounds KO
Crawford is too fast and too accurate.
Vince Phillips, Ricky Hatton.
This would be a quality fight 50/50 IMO Tszyu was good against southpaws. I think that it would be tactical early but turn into a dog fight at the halfway point.
Kostya Tzsyu was at least 2 weight class smaller than Crawford who is a massive weight bully..
Still at 140 KT by knock out
What about them?? They’re different fighters. And prime Hatton would wear Crawford out.
Gotta go with TC on this one. Tyzu was good, but a bit overrated. His best wins were against Judah and Sharmba Mitchell. Nice fighters for sure, but not on TCs level
There's nobody on Buds resume that Kostya would lose to either
I think Tszyu eventually catches up with Bud after taking a few shots , would have been a very entertaining fight thats for sure .
Good little fighter Terence Crawford aka TC which is short for The C Level Assassin
And speaking of ''levels''
Tszyu 259-11 (I've also seen it listed as 260-10)
So Crawford incurred more loses in 82 fights than Tszyu did in 270 even though he fought at a much lower level than Tszyu
And obviously Tszyu's amateur accomplishments>>>Crawford's by an absolute country mile
Tszyu 31-2 (25 KOs) KO 73%
Crawford 36-0 (27 KOs) KO 75%
Tszyu's opponent's win/loss ratio
Tszyu - 1064-130
Crawford's - 580-215
Number of world champions fought
Tszyu 15 (13-2)
Crawford 7 (7-0)
Number of world title fights
Number of times fought on the road
Tszyu - 15 including unifying twice in his opponent's country and winning his first world title in his opponent's country too. So he won all his world titles in his opponent's country and defended his titles many times on the road and in his opponent's country
Crawford - 1 (when he won his first world title fight)
Obviously to anyone with a brain that isn't the size of a peanut winning on the road or in your opponent's home country is more difficult and therefore more impressive than beating them in your backyard/country where often everything is stacked in your favour and against your opponent and it's more difficult for a whole host of different reasons that combine to make it so.
Some of them individually are enough to be the difference between going home with a W or an L, let alone combined. Only complete morons fail to grasp this. Beating Zab Judah or Sharmba Mitchell in their country>>>beating them in Australia or Russia. Winning away>>winning at home.
There's a reason why many fighters are reluctant to travel or fight in their opponent's backyard/country or flat-out refuse to ever do so and that reason is because they know it increases their chance of losing, by hook or by crook, because they know the deck is either going to be stacked against them or the best case scenario is it'll be level and some fighters have a deep aversion to fighting on the later.
Crawford has fought outside of his country once, whereas Tszyu did it 15 times, 15 fights on the road out of 33 fights.
Miguel Angel Gonzalez 43-1-3
Zab Judah 27-0-0
Sharmba Mitchell 47-2-0 & (55-3-0 for the rematch)
Diosbelys Hurtado 28-1
Jake Rodriguez 26-2-2
Rafael Ruelas 52-3
Oktay Urkal 28-0-0
Julio Cesar Chavez 103-4-2
Hector Lopez 26-2-1
Hugo Pineda 27-0-1
Jan Bergman 32-0-0
Ben Tackie 24-2-0
Jesse James Leija 43-5-2
Angel Hernandez 40-1-2
Roger Mayweather 54-11-0
Pedro Sanchez 26-1-2
Corey Johnson 20-1-1
And in his 4th fight he fought Juan Laporte 37-11-1
In his 6th Sammy Fuentes. Fuentes went on to pick up the WBO JWW strap later on in his career
10th Livingstone Bramble
Laporte, Bramble and Mayweather were past their best but they were still solid opponents for world class fighters.
Tszyu was fighting some real solid guys from early on in his career, Crawford didn't even get in there with anyone with a pulse until he was 19-0
Egis - 21-0-1
Vince and Ricky both stopped Kostya. FACT. Prime Hatton wearing out Crawford we will never know.
Tyszu got done dirty in Britain vs Hatton.
That was some dirty stuff Hatton was allowed to get away with round after round...
Tsyzu was a beast
