    Never mind the fact that Bud was hurt badly by an old, shot Gamboa.



    Never mind the fact that Kavaliauskas genuinely knocked down Bud.

    Thats the entire point. Spence should what? take a tune up fight and keep delaying until Bud shows obvious signs of slowing down??

    NO! they should absolutely fight right now while they are in or close to their prime. The longer it takes, the more headway it gives for the excuses to roll in.

    lol You're taking this too seriously. Spence was injured from a car accident and a retina injury. Plus, COVID. You can't ignore context. came back and fought next level competition. Bud fought Porter and was slowed down by Arum. This is all perfect timing. The Cobbs tuneup was just joke. There aren't any excuses readily available to use once these face off.

    still dont see how any of this makes the case for a tune up fight.

    they both just need to head into the fight

    He got caught offguard. His chin if okay, not great but semi decent.
