    Bud Bashes him

    Oscar got lucky many a time. He couldn't beat guys of Crawford's class. Oscar's jaw wasn't made of glass. But I have no doubt that Terence knocks him on his ass. Terence gets a MD over Oscar.

    Oscar I think.

    I'm sure that Crawford is overrated he is p4p the number #1 of The Ring, but normally it's Naoya.

    Let's be clear: Crawford beat Spence, but Spence was far from his best. If it hadn't been for his car accident, I think Spence would have beaten him. Crawford is lucky in that his category is in a fairly weak era and that he has a huge frame.

    Glad to see Oscar get some respect, Mosley and him would wipe the floor with most welterweights after 07.

    You are in the minority in that opinion. Bud beats any version of Spence which is why Bud wanted the fight in 2018 but all of the PBC WWs thought it was "fun" to avoid Bud.

    Prime DLH beats Floyd. I would have to think more about a DLH Crawford fight. It would be good.

    DLH wins at 140-147. Oscar was battle tested against WAY better competition.

    I don't agree that Spence was washed up due to the car accident. Crawfish beat him up fairly and convincingly.

    Good fight, 50/50 in my eyes.

    The only thing from definitely taking DLH was he seemed to gas in many fights.

    Oscar's lack of a great right hand sort of hurts him in matchups

    I still like his jab, footwork and toughness

    He had a tendency to fade or coast and he paid the price vs Shane, tito and Floyd

    I don't know if Terrence I'd battle tested enough for me to be too sold on him vs a bona-fide legend like Oscar

    I think it would be a great fight

    I think Mosley was DLH 1st true loss at WW, and even in a losing effort he fought a hell of a fight. Do I think Crawford is on the level of a prime Shane Mosley? Nope, I think Oscar beats Crawford, but Crawford will have his moments.

    Old DLH shouldve drawn against Floyd. And that was DLH w a new, untested trainer. Prime DLH beats Floyd.

    Not sure what happens w Bud

    Oscar was past his prime and almost beat a peak Floyd.
    Prime Oscar beats Floyd and TC.
    Prime Shane also beats TC

    Are you trying to get banned or something?

    These latest threads of yours have been terrible.

    Do you even want to debate this subject?

    Bud is a better finisher than Oscar was at welter, he is dangerous with both hands and is a great switch-hitter, Oscar didn`t throw enough right hands to finish Bud, Crawford destroys any fighter that Oscar beat by decision.

    Bud isn't battle tested? Even if that were true, it's because his defence is that good. He just doesn't get hit.

    De La Hoya would get creamed. Many people reckon Ike should have been given the decision. Sturm should have for sure.

    Terence makes everyone look like ****. Like an Interior decorator.
