    Crawford carves Spence up popping one of his steroid balloon nipples in the process.

    Crawford can be hurt

    Just nobody can get on top of him & pin him.

    I've always favoured Spence but as Crawfish gets more comfortable at 147 whilst Spence struggles to make the weight I lean more towards the fish.

    The intangibles can’t be measured. However for Crawford to win this fight he is going to need to be better than Sugar Ray Leonard and you know what, I personally don’t think he can.

    He actually does not. Those who have been in with both clearly give the power advantage to Spence and it is also self evident to the eye test.

    Yeah? Guess that'll make Mean Ol' Bud's victory all the more creditable.

    Punch placement/accuracy?

    Footwork?
    Fighting at medium range?
    Fighting on the outside?
    Killer instinct/finishing?

    In other words Spence is the PBC fighter so therefore you rank him higher to suit your agenda.

    These attributes you pull out because you think Crawford has the advantage will be brutally exposed in October when they fight. I wonder why Crawford is hesitant to sign the contract for the fight. Maybe he can’t find his pen.

    This is a 50-50 fight.

    Crawford has an edge in skills, Spence has the edge in power, but Crawford isn't feather-fisted and Spence has decent boxing skills.

    I hate mismatches, but I love watching evenly matched fights like this, where I don't know who is going to win beforehand.

    Styles make fights. Spence is a big strong pressure fighter. Crawford a skillful boxer puncher. That alone puts the ball in Spence's court.
