    He couldn't KO Porter, he won't be able to KO Danny either. Let's see just how well Spence's toothless glass jawed ass can take one of those Garcia left hooks.:deal:

    Agree with Merc Mephistus Malcontentus over here; I'm not so sure Earl is what he used to be and there's no guarantee prime Spence could get it done anyway. I think friend Earl might be packin' glass and Danny might be the beneficiary.

    Nobody has KO' d Porter. But I am interested to see what happens if DG lands his left hook clean.
    Is Spence glass jawed? He's never been stopped. Buzzed a couple of times, but remains undefeated. You once were beautiful in your assessments, nowadays you're off, way off.

    People hate on Danny but it's a bold choice for a comeback after having your whole face put back together.

    I'm a Spence fan and I will be wholly devastated if what we got so far was the extent of his prime.

    Ubers are cheap everyone, no excuse anymore.

    Let’s see what that punch resistance is like post accident.. He looks to be in excellent shape but we won’t know if he’s truly recovered until Danny catch him with a hook..

    Hey, after a few months off due to Covid lockdowns, I was a little rusty. Because I'd lost interest. But even then, so far this year I've predicted correctly and called upsets in Smith Jr. beating both Hart and Eleider Alvarez. Roamer Angulo beating Sims, JoJo Diaz beating Farmer, Karen Chukhadzhian beating Vorobiev, Leonardo Baez beating Chucky Flores, Faraci beating Cukur, Arboleda beating Jayson Velez, Diego Magdaleno beating Dulay, Molina beating Imam, Carroll beating Quigg, Mike Plania beating Greer, Vega beating Juarez, Povetkin stopping Whyte, Samir Ziani stopping Dilmangani, Baluta upsetting Joyce, Matias stopping Hawkins, Kambosos beating Selby, Isaac Cruz beating Magdaleno, Bentley stopping Heffron and Bolotniks beating Burton.

    Sadly I also got Bentley beating Heffron the first time, Baraou beating Culcay, Alameda beating Nery and Postol beating Ramirez right, but didn't get credit for it.:lol:


    Here's the catch, if I just spout off some nonsense, I usually don't believe what I'm saying, also discount what I say when it comes to Bud, I can't stand him and always root against him. But if I give a detailed reason, I usually do believe what I'm saying, so here.....

    Spence has proved countless times that he can be timed and repeatedly. Danny has pretty damn good timing and he's accurate as hell. If he fights Spence like he fought Thurman for the last 6 rounds of their fight or like how he fought Granados, he walks him down, catches him and puts him down for the count. I've always thought Spence's chin is very suspect, after the Lartey incident, that did not change after the Porter match. If Danny catches him with some of the hooks Porter did, he'll be Fast Asleep Earl instead of just Sleepy Eyed

    So my official prediction is.... Danny Garcia walks him down, beats the **** out of him and stops in 9. I really liked Danny's chances before the crash, I'm thrilled about his chances now. We have no idea how much that crash took out of him, how much weight he's put on since, how much it will hurt him draining down to 147 again. It's clear Spence doesn't hit that hard, I rate Danny's chin as good if not better than Porter's, his timing is better, he's better on the back foot, basically the same size as Spence, and might hit harder than Porter and Mikey. This could end up being target practice for Danny.

    Now will I be right? Maybe, maybe not. It all depends on how much Spence has recovered. Because make no mistake.... even against a healthy version of Spence, Garcia is no cakewalk.

    I love Danny Swift Garcia ever since I started studying when I had a fighter who was to go against him and another kid I know when up against him when they were. It’s on their way up. I would pick Garcia against absolutely anybody apart from Spence. It’s not be proven to me that either guy can be knocked out nor do I believe either guy can be knocked out at 147. DSG is in the weird position of both being underrated and overrated. He is a guy who does everything well with a excellent timing as tough as nails and power in both hands especially that beautiful left hook from Philly the city of brotherly love. DSG’s weaknesses are he can be a slow starter which you can accuse EJ of as well but once he is warmed up it’s war. I personally felt and still feel he beat Thurman and Porter and if I have a slight criticism it’s that though I love Angel Garcia a great character I do feel he has taken Danny as far as he can which is great. In these type of fights that little extra your corner can give you makes all the difference. You saw that with Shawn Porter against DSG and the Spence though I personally dislike Pops Kenny Porter. I think this fight has going the distance all over it as both guys cause real damage but have great chins and are tough as nails. To me in the truth EJ I see the mix of the fundamental skill sets of Don Curry, the body punching ability of Mike McCallum and the mindset mentality of Marvelous Marvin Hagler. This fight could mirror Hagler vs Duran. I love both guys but I see EJ on close points decision and before anyone asks I think both guys beat Terence Bud Crawford.

    No matter how hard you hit, Danny's chin seems to rise to match it. Weirdly, it also seems to lower to match a featherfist's power too.

    Algeri has a better chance of KOing him than Spence does :deal:

    Pre accident I didn't think Spence could KO Danny, post accident and having yet to see him in a fight since the accident, that is inconceivable. I definitely think he beats Danny though. The fact that Danny is a "punch when you punch guy" is gonna be a wrinkle for Spence though

    :lol:

    Danny looked ready to go against Mo Reese. Had that been a 15 rounder, Danny would have been knocked out in Puerto Rico.

    The X factor is how damaged Spence is. Think about that picture of him in the hospital. If a fight had caused him to end up there in that condition, we'd all be talking about how he'd never been the same, life-altering beating, etc.

    Could be especially after that horrible car wreck he was in. His punch resistance could be gone. This is a very dangerous fight for Spence to take for his first fight after the accident.
